MAY 7, 2018 - BARRINGTON, R.I. — A ground-breaking ceremony was held on May 7th, 2018 on the new +144,000 square foot Barrington Middle School project. Peregrine Group, in partnership with CGA Project Management, was designated as the Owner’s Project Manager in the Spring of 2016 and has been providing management and oversight of the middle school project.
In 2016, voters, in a 2-1 vote, approved a ballot referendum authorizing the town to borrow up to $68. 4 million for the project. The new construction will include modern science labs, a full auditorium with a performance stage, visual arts rooms, fitness facilities, a “maker’s space” for hands-on projects, electronic whiteboards in every classroom, security upgrades and a fire system linked directly to the fire station.
Since bond approval, Peregrine has continued services through completion of design including RIDE Stage II/Stage III submittal coordination, all in preparation for the start of construction in Spring of 2018. The new facility is expected to open in the fall of 2019.
