Tyngsborough, MA Officials from Tyngsborough Public Schools, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the town joined students, educators, and representatives from LeftField, JCJ Architecture, and Fontaine Bros. to celebrate the official groundbreaking of the 112,784 s/f Tyngsborough Middle School.
Designed by JCJ Architecture, with LeftField serving as owner’s project manager and Fontaine Bros. as construction manager, the new facility, being constructed between the existing middle school and high school, will replace the existing middle school and attached gymnasium built in 1967, which has reached its life expectancy. The new middle school is designed to allow middle school programming for teachers and students to be located within their academic teams and create flexible grade-level neighborhoods that contain synergistic collections of agile classrooms, extended learning areas, and small group meeting rooms. The new facility will continue to support the current theatre program with a continued theater venue and a flexible performance space.
During ceremonial remarks, senator Edward Kennedy explained the recent supplemental grants he orchestrated through the state budget process, which is anticipated to provide an additional $4.1 million in relief funding to the town as a result of unprecedented construction escalation experienced by 30 projects funded in part through the MSBA pipeline.
“I am excited to see the design and future educational program & facility for Tyngsborough’s middle school learners become a reality. On behalf of LeftField, we would like to praise the town, school district, JCJ Architecture, and Fontaine Bros. for all of their hard work behind the scenes to make this project a reality!” said David Saindon, project executive for LeftField.
