Woonsocket Middle Schools
Woonsocket, RI

Pare was retained by the City of Woonsocket to perform preliminary investigations of eight possible sites for two new middle schools.  Upon the City’s selection of two viable sites, Pare conducted an in-depth feasibility study of those locations which involved collecting and analyzing data from numerous sources, conducting field inspections at both sites, and preparing Conceptual Development Plans.  The City then selected an architectural/engineering design team—for which Pare was the primary engineer—to design and prepare construction documents for two new 128,000-SF middle schools to be built on the same site. The two new 800-student facilities each include a three-story classroom wing, a library media center, student dining, and a 7,000-SF gymnasium.

Pare provided all geotechnical investigations and design, foundation design, structural building design, off-site improvements to an adjacent roadway to accommodate turning movements into the new school, traffic signal design, drainage and utility connections design, sanitary sewer design, water distribution design, parking lot layout, soccer field design, permitting compilation, and construction observation.

The new schools, named Woonsocket Middle School at Hamlet and Woonsocket Middle School at Villa Nova, were occupied on January 4, 2010.
