Milton, MA Acella Construction Corp., a leader in construction management throughout greater Boston, has completed construction of The Goddard School For Early Childhood Development located at 193 Central Ave., the former site of the Milton Hoosic Club.
The project originally started over two years ago when a horrific fire of unknown origin destroyed the historic Hoosic Club building one month into construction.
Now completed, a multi-million-dollar, ground-up slab-on-grade construction comprises a two-story wood-frame building with over 10 classrooms, multiple offices, a kitchen, a break room and an indoor multi-purpose gymnasium. Additionally, the school has two exterior playgrounds, an outdoor learning center and a sports court.
XGrass synthetic grass field was used in exterior play spaces, and the exterior features staggered edge Hardie Shakes and PVC trim along with Stoneyard stone veneer. The building also has a Schindler elevator, Andersen windows, Carrier furnaces with Greenheck energy recovery ventilators, Bufftech vinyl fencing, and Iron World steel fencing installed by Reliable Fence of Boston. Cameras are located throughout the exterior and common hallways.
This is the second Goddard School for Early Childhood Development in Acella’s construction portfolio.
O’Sullivan Architects, Inc. of Peabody, Mass., and Wozny Barbar & Associates, Inc. of Hanover, Mass., served as project architect and engineer, respectively. Williams & Sparages of Middleton, Massachusetts, served as the civil engineer.
“It gives us great satisfaction to see this project come to completion,” said Ryan LaVangie, vice president of sales & marketing for Acella Construction, noting this is one of many academic projects in Acella’s portfolio. “The Milton Goddard School is beautiful, and we are excited to think about the organization opening its doors to so many children to enjoy, learn, and grow!”
