State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg, Chair of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA), and MSBA Executive Director Jack McCarthy announced today that the MSBA Board of Directors voted to invite local officials to collaborate on a Feasibility Study to address the deficiencies identified at the Cape Cod Regional Technical High School.
“This Feasibility Study will carefully examine all potential solutions to help us develop the most effective plan,” stated Treasurer Goldberg. “We look forward to partnering with the District to move this potential project forward.”
Cape Cod Regional Technical High School is a 214,000 square foot facility. The school was built in 1975, with an addition made in 2009. The District has identified deficiencies in major building systems including roof, windows, electrical and building envelope.
“We are committed to finding an acceptable alternative for the Cape Cod Regional Technical High School,” said Executive Director McCarthy. “Our partnership with local officials will ensure the best solution for the district’s students.”
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 1,600 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $11.5 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.
