VERTEX served as the Owner’s Project Manager on the new Norwood High School project. VERTEX worked with the Town of Norwood for over two years prior to its invitation as the first model school under the MSBA’s Model School program. During that time, the project team conducted a comprehensive analysis of over 14 new and renovation options for the 80-year-old high school. Once it became evident that a new high school offered the most fiscally responsible and educationally appropriate solution, VERTEX worked in close contact with the MSBA to assure that the first model school was a success. As the “poster child” for the MSBA’s Model School program, the New Norwood High School was a remarkable success. The design was completed in just 5 months while incorporating nearly all of the Town’s wishes. The new school included a university-quality library, dual gymnasiums, and state of the art technology to enhance the students’ learning environment. As a first adopter, VERTEX developed many of the protocols and policies which have since been adopted by the MSBA on its subsequent Model School projects.
