Draft Design Recommendation Accepted by Amherst School Board – September 2021
After spending time with both draft designs from Banwell Architects for Clark-Wilkins, the Joint Facilities Advisory Committee voted unanimously to recommend Option C to the Amherst School Board. This option expands on to the existing Multi-Purpose room, includes a proper gym, 7 classrooms per grade for K-5, and is a two-story building (no longer a 3-story building as was originally proposed in 2020). The Amherst School Board accepted the recommendation and the team is moving forward with securing cost estimates. The estimates are expected to come in well under the original 2020 proposal.
