West Elementary & Shawsheen PreK School Building Committee
Following the voters’ approval of project funding at Town Meeting and at the polls, the West Elementary and Shawsheen Preschool Building Committee authorized the extension of contracts for the Owners’ Project Manager (PMA Consultants) and the architect (SMMA) and authorized the entry of a contract with Gilbane Building Company as the construction manager. The Town also entered into a final Project Funding Agreement with the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) which sets the terms for reimbursement by MSBA of a portion of approved project costs. The project now is in the detailed design phase, with actual construction set to begin in the summer of 2022.

Andover High School Facility Study Committee
The Andover High School Facility Study Committee was formed in January 2017 and has been conducting a preliminary feasibility study with the architecture firm HMFH. The Study Committee has developed many options for improvements at Andover High, ranging from $7 million worth of safety and security upgrades to over $200 million for a new school building.

For both of these projects, community feedback is critical. Meetings of both committees are open to the public and notifications are posted to the Town of Andover website.
Meetings are also videotaped and can be viewed from the Andover TV website.
