AUBURN, Mass. - A Community Forum will be held at Auburn Middle School on Thursday, April 12 at 6:30 p.m. to share progress made to date by the School Building Committee (SBC) in this important process. All community members are invited to attend.
The Auburn Middle School Feasibility Study continues to make progress, following Town Meeting approval of $600,000 for this purpose in May 2011. Skanska was hired in August 2011 as the Owner’s Project Manager (OPM), with Lamoureux-Pagano Architects being hired as the Designer in January 2012.
According to the Auburn Middle School Feasibility Study website, managed by Skanska, the current Auburn Middle School Building was originally constructed in 1959 and added to in 1972.
The facilities team at Auburn Middle School has continued to repair and adapt the aging building in order to provide the students of Auburn with a safe educational environment in which to learn and thrive. However, in order to continue to provide this level of service that our students deserve, actions must be taken to improve the current conditions at Auburn Middle School.
According to the site, the current facility is inefficient and outdated with an ongoing need for repairs. The Auburn School District, in conjunction with the Massachusetts School Building Authority, have begun a Feasibility Study to explore all potential solutions that meet the District's current and future educational programming needs.
The Feasibility Study will be a 6 month comprehensive study performed by Lamoureux Pagano Associates Architects expected to conclude in July of 2012.
Once the preferred solution has been approved by the Massachusetts School Building Authority, a town vote will be required to approved the project and allocate funds.
