PROJECT UPDATES

Schematic Design - Module 4

The High School project is now completing Module 4 – Schematic Design. This phase dictated the project budget and design that ultimately will be the basis of the Project Funding Agreement with the MSBA. The completed Schematic Design package was submitted to the MSBA on May 2, 2024 and will be up for Board Approval at the June 26, 2024 MSBA Board of Directors meeting.

Part of the Schematic Design process also included the procurement of a CM (Construction Manager) at Risk. This process started with public advertising of the project in December 2023. Six very qualified CM firms submitted Qualification Statements and all firms were interviewed on February 14 & 15. Based on the ratings the final selection was made by the CM-at-Risk Subcommittee the following day and Fontaine Bros/W.T. Rich was selected.

The project team submitted the Preliminary Design Program (PDP) to the MSBA on July 28, 2023, and received comments back from the MSBA which were responded to. The project team then submitted the Preferred Schematic Report (PSR) on October 26, 2023, and received formal comments back from the MSBA which were responded to on December 6, 2023.

Following the PSR submission, the project team and District then met with the FAS (Facilities Assessment Subcommittee) on November 15th, to introduce the project to the FAS group so they could make the recommendation to present at the MSBA Board of Directors meeting on December 13, when the MSBA Board of Directors unanimously voted that the Town of Agawam and the High School project was approved to proceed into schematic design.
