KSQ is creating a tight-knit academic community for the historic Kingston High School in Kingston, NY, with the help of a record $137.5 million bond referendum passed by local residents. The design offers small learning communities or "academies" and includes extensive renovations and repairs to the main building, removing two existing building for site access improvements, and reconstruction the field house to include a fitness center open to community members, along with renovations and code improvements to other existing buildings. We've also helped turn the construction site into a learning zone for students. Along with our project partners BBL Construction, we've provided students enrolled in the Ulster BOCES Hudson Valley Pathways Academy (housed in the Kingston Carnegie Library we renovated) with site tours and opportunities for dialogue about the AEC industry. This spring we'll invite students to intern with KSQ and BBL to further increase their knowledge of the industry. KSQ and BBL have also created the KSQ-BBL Architecture-Construction-Engineering Scholarship for graduating Kingston students.
KSQ Project Manager Alex Soto discusses the plans for Kingston High School with students during the site tour.
