Saugus High School Modernization

STV implemented the William S. Hart Union School District’s master plan to reinvent the Saugus High School into a cutting-edge educational facility. This $33.5 million modernization program included a new 20,000-square-foot laboratory and classroom building, an 18,000-square-foot administration and library building, a new food services building, fiber-optic lines in each classroom, and full ADA compliance across the entire 52-acre campus. STV also designed renovations for the interiors and HVAC systems of the existing gym, a woodshop, custodial services buildings, and classroom buildings.

As part of STV’s design, the firm broke away from the 1960s-style Brutalist format of the existing buildings that had minimal ornamentation and fenestration, instead utilizing glass and stucco, with curved surfaces and relatively complex shapes.
