blue Hills Regional High School

Renovation Project

Community Outreach / Landing Page / Public Information

Project Overview

Blue Hills Regional Technical High School currently offers 17 Chapter 74 Vocational programs to 882 students (2015-2016) in grades 9-12 from its nine member communities Avon, Braintree, Holbrook, Canton, Milton, Randolph, Norwood, Westwood, and Dedham. 

Established in 1964, the school is currently celebrating its 50th graduating class. The proposed project would be the first major renovation to the school since an addition was added in 1976. 

On or about January 2016, Blue Hills submitted a Statement of Interest (SOI) to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA).  The MSBA is an independent public authority that administers and funds a program for grants to eligible school districts for school construction and renovation projects.

Blue Hills has been invited into the MSBA core program and will explore renovation options only, and the MSBA will contribute approximately 53% of eligible renovation costs.

The whole current building is adequate for its current instructional program, however is in need of replacement of all windows and building entries, as well as certain major systems replacements such as complete heat loop, HVAC, fire annunciation, ADA compliance, and electrical infrastructure.

Owner's Project Manager

Dore & Whittier Management Partners, LLC

Owner's Project Managers are the centerpiece of the MSBA's efforts to maximize accountability and the return on taxpayers' investment in school construction. As a representative of both the Owner/District and the MSBA, an OPM is the focal point for project management and accountability.

An OPM works as a consultant through the completion of the project and must be completely independent from the designer, general contractor and any sub-contractors involved in the project at all times.

Drummey Rosane Anderson, Inc.

Designers are selected by the Massachusetts School Building Authority's Designer Selection Panel (DSP). The DSP has jurisdiction over the procurement of designers in connection with cities, towns, regional school districts and technical schools seeking funding from the MSBA for public school construction projects whose estimated construction cost is anticipated to be $5,000,000 or greater. This process incorporates the procedures required by Massachusetts General Laws pertaining to designer services for public building construction (Chapter 7C, Section 44, et seq.).


The Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) is a quasi-independent government authority created to reform the process of funding capital improvement projects in the Commonwealth's public schools.  The MSBA strives to work with the local communities to create affordable, sustainable, and energy efficient schools across Massachusetts.  In its ten-year history, the MSBA has made more than $12.1 billion in reimbursements to cities, towns, and regional school districts for school construction projects.
