Description: Compass is providing Owner’s Representation services for the new Alma del Mar Charter School in New Bedford. The current facility, a 100 year old former public school building, has seen no significant investment and is insufficiently sized to accommodate the increased student load. Compass has spearheaded the strategic evaluation undertaken to determine the best option for the school. After considerable analysis, Alma del Mar has decided to build a new school on the existing site and demolish the existing school to provide future playfields. Site development involving traffic flow improvements and a new parking lot will be included in the project.
