Construction Update | 8/9/19

BROWN/KENNEDY CAMPUS IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL 8/19


As we approach the start of the school year, we want to prepare parents on the changes to the morning routines as it relates to navigating the Brown/KMS campus.


A large part of the drop off/pick up process will be adjusting to the normal "new school" procedures; however, keep in mind that this is also a live construction site and we need to account for it in our morning routines.


Navigating the campus:

A guidance video is forthcoming. Stay tuned!

  • Plan to add 20 minutes to morning routines until you become familiar with the new layout of the campus.
  • Walking paths will be open. (Read below for site updates about the paths).
    Please see the reader accessible PDF or image of the site map for pedestrian access points and navigation.
  • Drivers MUST FOLLOW DIRECTIONS from adults directing traffic on campus.
  • Read ALL signs.
  • Maintain LOW SPEEDS at all times.
  • Please do not use drop off time to check out the campus.
  • If possible, avoid driving to campus to avoid the anticipated congestion.

Site Updates:

  • Barnsdale walking path will be open as before.
  • Old Surrey walking path is restored and will be open.
  • New pedestrian walking path on campus (a navigation video is forthcoming)
Upcoming School Events:
  • Medical/Health Info drop off
    8/26; regular building hours

A few things to note:

  • The campus is an active (live) construction site.
  • The construction site is enclosed with fencing and locks; therefore, there is a low probability of anyone "wandering" into the space.

Construction Update 6/14/19

Monday and Tuesday of next week (6/17-18) there will be brush clearing on the campus near the Surrey path area.  Fencing will be installed.  The group has worked with the arborist in accordance with conservation and wetlands oversight as they work in this area and remove brush.  

Tree clearing will occur at the front of the building next week so there will be no parking for staff next to the gym.  Fencing will be installed in front and there will still be front side access to the building through this week.

Traffic pattern alert: in two weeks, the entire traffic pattern to enter campus shifts from the current entrance to the new entrance.  This will only affect summer employees as the campus is closed to visitors.

Two piles of loam will rest near the current back parking lot.  These piles will be seeded and fenced off.  They will rest here for the duration of the project until they are used.  They are off limits and therefore fenced in with signage.

Playgrounds at Brown have been inspected with new fencing and are safe for play through June 19.

Construction Update 6/7/19

See below for the timeline of activities happening on the Kennedy and Brown campuses over the summer. Attached is an annotated map with notes of the areas on campus that will experience impacts and the anticipated dates for those activities.


A good rule of thumb is that campus and buildings will not be accessible by the public from the end of the school year June 19, 2019 through August 19,  2019.  


Exception:  Administrators, custodians and administrative assistants will be the only authorized personnel on both campuses.  These individuals will be able to be in the building and conduct their work save for the exceptions noted below.


June - August 2019

  • Do not expect access to the schools (including classrooms) and roads, unless you work at the school in the summer as an administrator, assistant, or custodian.

After Students Leave School (14th)

  • Fencing will be moved around, parking may be impacted but staff can still enter and exit until June 19.


June 17th

  • Expect delays due to one-lane travel on the Brown/KMS campus at all times

  • Fencing installation along roadway on to dual campus and on Brown access road

  • Modular install begins--footings prep

  • Technology Staff move items out of current IT office so it can be remodeled for use as front door supervisor’s office (affects staff only)


June 19th

  • No access to campuses from Hartford Street

  • No access to campuses from Mill Street

  • Access to Brown only from Barnesdale and will not flow through the campuses reliably

  • Surrey Lane access will be blocked, remade, realigned and restored around July 1 (estimation)

  • Custodians at Brown need to clean and prep modulars prior to July 1


June 20th

  • There will be no access to the side parking lot at Brown. Construction vehicles only. (staff should no longer visit campus)

  • Front of old KMS will no longer be accessible.

  • No access to the old KMS parking lot.

  • One lane traffic on campus, expect delays

  • Deliveries will be routed to the new front entrance which is now the back entrance.


June 24th

  • A new access road will be used to enter campuses

  • Expect one-lane access on campus

  • No public access to Mill Street

  • Improvements to Lucier Drive will begin

  • Mosaic on front door will be removed and preserved for future installation

  • Modular classrooms delivered to site (2)

  • Complete install temporary water heater

    • Hot water access will be available after this for whole summer until cut over of utilities in late July/early August.


1st/2nd Week of July

  • Water switch over

  • No staff access at all, including summer workers --principals, assistants, custodians (dates TBD) (affects school staff only and their ability to work in schools; if working this week during power outages, move to town hall for admins and assistants, to NHS for custodians)

    • This could be a 1-2 day cut over


July 15-16th (exact dates within these weeks may fluctuate)

  • Eversource collaboration, various changeovers.  (affects school staff only and their ability to work in schools; if working this week during power outages, move to town hall for admins and assistants, to NHS for custodians)

  • School Technology Staff will need to reboot and check technology after the power outages and check phone services


End of July/Beginning of August

  • Possible power disruption to Brown and KMS (affects school staff only)

  • Fire alarm cut over (this date is not yet firm but no staff can be in building without a working alarm)

  • District technology to arrange to test video surveillance system


August 7th

  • Paving the permanent parking lot at Brown


August 19th

  • Summer phase of construction to be completed

  • New access road to campus will be operational.


Weeks Prior to School

A video and map of new roads and drop-off procedures / circulation routes will be sent to the community at large for the 2019-2020 School Year.


In addition, you can view an aerial site map for a visual of the areas on campus where there will be impacts or work will be completed on the various dates outlined above.


Please know that we are in the process of determining the following:

  1. If there was a time capsule placed in the old KMS and where it is (no one can yet answer this, even Dr. Keefe!)

  2. A time capsule committee led by Sandy Lemon has been convened to create a NEW capsule to be placed in the new KMS building

  3. Plants around the campus are subject to conservation expectations for the construction team.  The team is expected to preserve, relocate and reuse whatever they can. We cannot, therefore, allow the public in to dig up plants.  In addition, from June 19 on, there is no access to the closed campus at all.

  4. Arrangements are being made, like those made for the old NHS, to have a “say goodbye to old KMS” event that would allow for final visits and to distribute both memorabilia and aspects of the building that cannot be sold or salvaged for reuse.

Construction Update 5/31/19

The Kennedy Middle School Building Committee, Brait Construction and Compass Project Management have been evaluating the compacting of the soil for the parking lot and its attributed vibrations. Due to these evaluations, the project team is engaging a third party engineering firm to conduct existing condition surveys of the homes along Barnesdale Road and Surrey Lane that are directly abutting the KMS site. 

Notice and instructions will be sent via US Mail to the abutting residences in order to coordinate access, if so desired, directly with the abutter.  Notices should be received within the next week or so.  This process is entirely voluntary. 

Copies of the survey reports will be made available to the corresponding participants upon request.

The project team continues to further assess the situation in an effort to mitigate the project's impact on the surrounding community.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue with this important and exciting project for the Town of Natick.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail at kmsbuildingcommittee@natickps.org with any questions or concerns. 

We will do our best to respond to them in a timely manner.

A hard copy of this email will be sent to abutter homes via US mail as well.

Construction Update 5/21/19

The Kennedy building project is currently ahead of schedule, and this is great news. 

However, this also means items originally planned for summer (after the school year ends) are ready to be executed now and currently this will have an impact on the Brown K-1 playground. 

If the construction team is able to do work to the Brown playground on this Friday (5/24), it has the potential to save time on the project. This is the work that they will be doing to the playground:
  • Taking down the basketball hoop and the climbing cube structure.
  • Setting up new fence and jersey barriers that cut out a portion of our playgroup.
  • Removing the black fence that is between the playground and the modulars.
  • Extending the fence line by the path so that it adds the grassy area to the playground.
  • Setting up a portable basketball hoop in the black top area.
The construction team and project managers have assured us that all of this work will be done on Friday (with the exception of the portable hoop).

Construction Update 5/20/19

This week a new Surrey Path will be created.

As a part of the tree removal process, the construction team will be creating a new Surrey Path. This is part of the planned creation of emergency egress from Surrey to the future athletic field that is part of the project. 

Below is a detailed image of the site and the trees to be addressed.

Construction Update 4/26/19

FENCING UPDATE
There have been a few improvements to the fencing situation today. First, the portion of fencing at the rear corner of the building near the wood shop has been removed allowing access around the entire building (the field is still enclosed). Secondly, for those exiting the modular area the large gates to the fencing in front of the path will be open during the school day allowing much easier access to the path or towards the front of the school. I will keep you all updated if any further changes are made. Any questions please let me know. PUDDLE UPDATE The construction group is pumping the water away from building and allowing some areas to dry. The gravel designed to keep the roads passable, will not work if the puddles are too deep. Please know we are working as these areas become dry enough for gravel to add the stones to keep all lanes passable. BROWN PLAYGROUND UPDATE Grades K-1 playground is open for the remainder of the year during school and on weekends. Grades 2-4 playground has regained full access to all play elements and will remain so until school is out.

***Due to the power outage earlier this week, the path to the right of Brown School up to the Barnesdale neighborhood will be closed until repairs are finished. Students must go around the front of the building.  This is slated to be until next week.

Construction Update 4/18/19

The construction team is hoping to complete a number of activities this week:
  • Tree clearing.
  • Topsoil removal within fencing.
  • Survey and Layout for Foundations.
  • Setting up the constructions site work trailers.
  • Construction material deliveries to fenced in areas. 

Groundbreaking 3/27/19

We celebrated the official ceremonial groundbreaking on March 27, 2019. This marked the official start to the project and construction will commence moving forward.
