DRA is providing on-call architectural services relating to various interior and exterior maintenance improvements at Blue Hills Vocational High School.  The work includes window replacements, handicap accessibility, roof replacements, brick restorations, HVAC modifications, domestic hot water systems, electrical / mechanical systems and kitchen design.

Our first step was to complete a comprehensive feasibility study to analyze the existing building infrastructure.  We accomplished this task with several site reviews combined with a close examination of existing building documentation.  DRA generated a report that targeted potential future projects.  These projects were then categorized based on their priority.

DRA is currently providing architectural services for the first two projects that resulted from the study - a pool renovation project and an athletic field upgrade project.

The pool project consists mostly of HVAC upgrades with some finish material replacement.  DRA will provide design services, construction documents, bidding and construction administration services for the $1.5 million renovation.  Renovations and repairs include repairs to pool deck, re-design and replacement of HVAC system, replacement of pool deck ceramic tile and other various finishes.  The project is currently targeting go out to bid in mid April 2013 with construction lasting approximately 5 months.
