Jack McCarthy, Executive Director of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”), today joined with local legislative and school district leaders at a re-opening ceremony at Assabet Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School. The MSBA will contribute a maximum grant of up to $30,961,816 toward additions and renovations at the school.
“The MSBA is thrilled to have taken part in this project,” Executive Director McCarthy said. “This partnership between the District and the MSBA has provided an up-to-date, 21st century facility for the children in the District.”
The project consists of additions and renovations to improve science classrooms at the 367,565 square foot school. Project repairs addressed deficiencies in major building systems including, roof, electrical, plumbing and windows. Assabet Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School was built in 1973 and serves 1,000 students in grades 9 through 12.
The MSBA partners with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally appropriate, flexible, sustainable and cost-effective public school facilities. Since its 2004 inception, the Authority has made over 1,650 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $11.6 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.
