New Facilities


On the Hill Campus, the new Aquatic Center, pictured above and below, opened this fall. Designed by PBDW Architects and built by Shawmut Design and Construction Co., the 13,000-square-foot facility features a six-lane, USA-certified pool, bleachers, locker rooms, and lobby gathering area. A major renovation of the Zambetti Athletic Center, also designed by PBDW Architects and built by Shawmut, also is expected to be completed this fall. Space previously used for a swimming pool is being converted into a second gym. 


On the River Campus, a new classroom building, above, opened in September 2016. The 23,000-square-foot building includes classrooms for grades three to five, a cafeteria, a theater, and flexible learning/community spaces. Designed by Architecture Research Office with Open, a design firm, and built by Shawmut, the building received enthusiastic press:
