Alma del Mar Charter School
Dellbrook | JKS completed the new Alma del Mar Charter School in New Bedford, MA. The school previously occupied a 20,000 SF single story (circa 1918) school building on the Madeira Avenue site in New Bedford. The new 43,000 sf facility provides a modern learning environment for students with shared multi-use spaces, and brightly-colored, light-filled classrooms. Construction also included multiple spaces that accommodate a wide range of uses within the building. The gymnasium and cafeteria, which sit next to each other, can be opened up to create a large space for both school and community use. Exterior play fields and parking lot were also constructed.
Construction, (Phase 1) began in late August, 2015 for the new two story School on the vacant east section of the school’s current site facing Belleville Avenue in New Bedford. The new school building was designed by HMFH Architects, from Cambridge, MA. Phase 2 consisted of demolition of the old building.
Construction was completed in July, 2016.
