School construction project already under budget as ground broken.

CTA Construction Co. Inc. joined Douglas school and municipal officials for the groundbreaking on a $36.2 million school construction project on March 31. CTA Construction, a highly experienced and award-winning general contracting firm based in Waltham, will construct a new elementary school and renovate an intermediate elementary school, along with a new road and athletic fields.

In addition to Douglas, CTA recently won the contract to build a new school in Winchester. The Waltham general contractor’s other current projects include the Tahanto Regional Middle/High School in Boylston, as well as schools in Maynard, Burlington and Tewksbury. In the past 10 years, CTA has undertaken more than 45 projects valued over $700 million.

“CTA Construction is proud to put our extensive experience in building top-quality schools to work for the students of Douglas. When we’re finished, the citizens of Douglas will have a state-of-the-art elementary school and a refurbished middle school that will be a source of pride for decades to come,” said Steve Malenchini, P.E., Project Manager for CTA Construction (http:http://www.ctaconstruction.com).

CTA Construction won the Douglas project as the most-competitive, qualified bidder, submitting a final proposal under budget and saving taxpayers $2.6 million. The project’s three components are repair of the Intermediate Elementary School, Construction of a new elementary school for grades 2 to 5, and construction of a roadway and athletic fields.

As designed by the architectural firm DiNisco Design Partnership of Boston, the project details include:

  •     An 83,100-square-foot new elementary school built under the state’s Model School program.
  •     Renovation of the existing Intermediate Elementary School and renaming of the building as the Douglas Middle School to serve grades 6 to 8. The building will receive a new roof and new heating system, among many other upgrades.
  •     A loop road will be constructed to improve public safety with parent drop-off on one side of the school and bus drop-off on the other.
  •     A new softball field and two playing fields will be constructed, as well as a track for walking and running, with a playing field in the interior.

CTA Construction Co. Inc. is an award-winning general contractor with a reputation for quality and professionalism. In 2011, CTA won a Merit Award and two Green Building Awards from the Associated Builders and Contractors Massachusetts. As a testament to customer satisfaction, CTA has a 94 out of 100 ranking on client surveys filed with the state Division of Capital Asset Management.
