Belmont, MA At the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) owner’s project manager review panel, Daedalus Projects, Inc. was unanimously approved to serve as the owner’s project manager (OPM) for feasibility study of the Belmont High School project. The Belmont High School building committee (SBC) held a public meeting to introduce the Daedalus team to the community where SBC chair Bill Lovallo cited Daedalus’ track record of successful MSBA projects and previous experience with public facilities in the town as major factors in the decision to hire the firm.
The existing Belmont High School was built in 1970 and does not adequately meet the needs of the student population. Overcrowding has placed considerable strain on the building’s facilities and is anticipated to worsen significantly in coming years. The school is located on a challenging site that is bordered by Commuter Rail train tracks to the north, Clay Pit Pond to the south, and residential and commercial properties to the east and west. The project team has begun the designer selection phase and expects to release a request for proposals to architects soon.
Daedalus’s previous work in Belmont includes serving as OPM on both the Chenery Middle School and the ongoing repairs to the fire stations. Daedalus’ team for this project will be led by firm president Richard Marks, senior project manager Tom Gatzunis, P.E., and senior project manager Shane Nolan.
