Barrington, RI
New Middle School


Kaestle Boos

New $68.4 million, 142,500 sf state-of-the-art middle school building. Key features of the new building include flexible classroom spaces for project-based collaborative learning, modern science labs, a full auditorium with performance stage, rehearsal and performance areas for band and chorus, visual arts rooms, technology and allied arts areas, and athletic and fitness facilities.

The three story main structure is a steel frame with reinforced masonry shear walls and diagonal bracing. Shear walls are located in key locations where masonry is already being used for architectural reasons, greatly reducing the structural costs of the building. Careful coordination by the design team using 3D modeling helped to improve the project schedule and minimize changes during construction.
