The Worcester Technical High School was designed to support the new paradigm of vocational and technical education that integrates academic and technical training. Recognized nationally as a model for contemporary technical high schools, the building is organized in four career academies—manufacturing, business management, health and human services, and construction. This ‘school within a school’ concept creates a manageable scale for the 400,000 square-foot building. The building incorporates many sustainable design features, including a roof water collection system that supports adjacent vernal pools, athletic fields situated on a former landfill, and high-tech energy management systems.
“The representatives of Lamoureux Pagano Associates with whom we have worked consistently provided a high level of attention to the project and produced a building design that strongly supports our educational program.”
