Cabot Elementary School


The Cabot Elementary School project consisted of the complete renovation of a 1929 landmark building and the construction of three new additions within an aggressive 22-month construction schedule. W.T. Rich managed the demolition of the 1957 and 1990 additions before constructing a 3-story classroom addition as well as library and gymnasium additions. Construction of the 81,500 square foot school was completed on time and on budget despite being located on a highly-confined worksite adjacent to an active park and athletic fields.
