Hunnewell School Feasibility Study

The Hunnewell School Feasibility Study is underway!

The purpose of the feasibility study is to search for a preferred solution to the problems with the existing Hunnewell School. The building does not meet modern standards for education and requires substantial renovation or replacement. Read Project Background

The study will include:

  • A full building study and site analysis,
  • determination of educational programming needs,
  • fit testing,
  • analysis of swing space options,
  • an environmental audit of the site and potential options and opportunities for sustainability and conservation,
  • a historic assessment of the existing school.

See Architect RFQ for more detail


The School Building Committee welcomed approximately 60 members of the community to an Eco-Charrette on October 15th. 

The design team from SMMA, the architect for the Hunnewell School feasibility study, provided a project overview and information about sustainable design and Net Zero Energy. Breakout sessions provided participants an opportunity to learn more about and provide thoughts on sustainable design goals and objectives for the project.
