South Coast Improvement Company has recently completed work with first-time client, Shady Hill Schools in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The School serves pre-K through 8th grade students on a unique 11 acre campus in historic Cambridge Massachusetts, which integrates some of the best programs in the industry with a resourceful setting that optimizes the social, physical, emotional and mental development of the children.
Shady Hill School was born on the back porch of a home owned by Ernest and Agnes Hocking in 1915. By 1925 the number of students had grown, new space housed the school, and it gained its official name. Today, the campus has 18 buildings of impressive stature, and the school is looking to continue development with an extensive construction plan geared toward even greater integration and innovation amongst their educational community of staff and students.
South Coast Improvement Company constructed a fast-track addition for the school, creating a nautical themed deck shaped like a ship and complete with a mast. The project began with excavation and required skillful carpentry work. The unique shape and design aspects required expert work from the framing process through the extent of the build. The life-like ship bow provides the perfect take off for imaginative play, and is built to last!
The project cost just over $200,000 and is ready just in time for the students to enjoy at the start of this new school year. As experts in occupied space renovations recognized professionals in the education sector, South Coast Improvement Company hopes to be part of more projects for this school as they chip away at their long-term construction plan.
