Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School
South Easton, MA


Our work with Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School (SERVTHS) began with an on-call architectural services contract involving a variety of projects ranging from assessments, repairs, replacements and other improvements to extend the useful life of the facility, and to accommodate the evolving needs of technical education. 

SERVTHS was then invited into the MSBA Vocational/Tech Initiative. In July 2010, as the selected designer, DRA began a comprehensive feasibility study and schematic design.  The Feasibility Study targeted two major concerns within the school.  One, upgrades to existing building systems (i.e. mechanical system upgrades, addition of sprinkler system and upgraded fire alarm system, roof replacement and window replacement) and two, program issues relating to existing programs vs. declining and increasing enrollment within these programs. 

The schematic design incorporated building a new gymnasium.  The existing Library then moved into the old gymnasium which frees up space for much needed additional cafeteria seating.  The auxiliary gymnasium now houses the music and drama department.  The early education moved to an outbuilding currently housing the electrical shop which moved into the area left from consolidating the machine shop and metal fabrication.  The health and medical assisting suite moved into the area vacated by early education.  This allowed for the creation of 4 new science labs.
