Plymouth North High School
Plymouth, MA

Pare Corporation was retained by Ai3 Architects to provide civil engineering for the design of the new 1,350-student Plymouth North High School on the same site as the existing school.  One of the first tasks involved the performance by Pare of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment to evaluate the site with respect to the potential presence of “Recognized Environmental Conditions.”  Pare provided recommendations for further investigations to be conducted during the demolition of the existing building and the construction of the new building as well as the closure of a number of buried storage tanks and the investigation of soil and/or groundwater in the vicinity of several below-ground transformers and hydraulic lifts.

In addition to site design, Pare performed traffic engineering, geotechnical investigations and permitting.  The site engineering effort included layout and grading of the site along with hydraulic and hydrologic modeling for infiltration systems and low-impact drainage design, and design of the sewer service and other coordination of utilities.

Pare and the project landscape architect worked with the school's athletics department to review program needs and proposed layout of fields and associated facilities, leading to the design of synthetic turf football, baseball, and softball fields.  The overall design also incorporates a new 18,000-SF Council on Aging Building for the Town, new half-time facility, and a new football stadium.  Pare has provided all environmental permitting, performed well investigations, designed temporary parking during construction, and prepared easement documentation.

The new high school is involved in the model schools program and the goal is to become certified with LEED for Schools.
