Ryan Construction completed a major addition and renovation of the Robin Hood Elementary School in Stoneham, MA. The 31,000 sqft addition included new classrooms including a pre-kindergarten classroom & two kindergarten classrooms, gymnasium, kitchen, cafeteria, faculty dining room, bathrooms & support space as well as a new entry road, a new multi-sport athletic field, fully-equipped children’s play area & extensive architectural site improvements. The 30,000 sqft renovation involved the original school including the fourteen classrooms, common areas & the administration areas as well as extensive mechanical & electrical work, new windows, repairing & re-pointing the brick exterior & a new roof. This project was completed on schedule for the students to return to a red carpet ceremony for their first day back in September.
The project consisted of completely renovating the old Melrose Registry of Motor Vehicles building into a new 1st class early education and childcare facility. A new sprinkler system was added which required street trenching and installation of a new 6-inch water line into the building. New electrical, plumbing, and HVAC components were installed to provide a code-compliant childcare facility. All new finishes including “child-size” furniture and fixtures, luxury vinyl tile, and LED lighting were installed throughout the new space. The rear driveway was transformed into a child playground area using a natural environment theme.
Construction of the 16,000 sq ft existing building into new classrooms, learning centers, and administrative support offices. New mechanical, fire suppression, and electrical system were installed as well as a new 4 stop hydraulic elevator. A significant amount of work was completed on a fast track basis over the summer months to minimize disruption to the student body during the academic school year.
Ryan Construction served as the general contractor for the construction of this state of the art one and a half story Boys and Girts Club of Worcester Clubhouse.
Designed by Bargmann, Hendrie + Archetype, Inc., this new 47,000 sqft building features facilities for club activities including a gymnasium, a boxing ring, an indoor Olympic-size swimming pool, classrooms, a daycare center, a full-service kitchen, and multipurpose room as well as administrative offices.
The building has a structural steel frame, metal siding panel, glass and masonry exterior walls; and a single-ply roofing system. The site improvements and exterior amenities include fences & gates, site furnishings, planting, lawns & grass, and parking.
The project was awarded a Central Massachusetts American Institute of Architects design award.
