  by    0   0

A recent article in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette talks about MSBA’s survey of public school buildings across the Commonwealth, and in particular highlights the needs in Worcester and Fitchburg for upgraded or new public school facilities.

LPA Executive Vice President Katie Crockett is quoted in the article, talking about what she has seen in the public schools throughout Central Massachusetts and the need to design schools that can provide a 21st Century education. From the article:

“It’s not just crumbling walls and leaky ceilings that require updating, however. Kathryn Crockett, vice president at Lamoureux Pagano & Associates, a Worcester-based architecture and project-management firm that has worked on dozens of school building projects in the region, said there are more education-driven considerations that have swayed districts with the necessary resources towards doing more expensive rebuilds of schools rather than patch up or add onto existing buildings.”
