One Proposal for a Future Elementary School
In prioritizing options, the Committee considered project goals and parameters established through Teacher and Community Visioning and surveys, as well as seeking alignment with the Strategic Plan.
Through that process, it became clear that many school buildings are in need of immediate attention to provide sufficient and adequate space to support the quality of educational programs offered by the Town.
The Facilities Committee advertised for a facilities consultant to assist with the review of building space programs and the development of conceptual alternatives for the various projects under consideration.
Following this public Request for Qualifications process, East Greenwich School Department (EGSD) selected Colliers Project Leaders to develop a comprehensive master plan to identify the district-wide facilities-related needs and develop options for addressing them.
Colliers proposed a process comprised of for distinct, yet inter-related, studies to collect data: Facilities Conditions Assessment, Space Quantification & Utilization Analysis, Program Modernization Planning, and Enrollment Impact Analysis. The integration of these endeavors will form the basis of the master plan to guide future capital investments in the schools.
The Facilities Conditions Assessment (FCA) is an evaluation of the East Greenwich schools to identify the deferred maintenance exposures across the buildings and grounds. Colliers’ FCA findings are contained in this report.
