Requests for quotations for architectural services were sent out Friday, Arum said. Those requests will be returned Nov. 17 before the building committee next meets Nov. 19 to determine their top four architects. Interviews will then be conducted with those four architects, with the top architect being determined Nov. 24. From January 2021 to February 2022, the building committee will work with its selected architect, construction manager and owner’s representative on developing a schematic design, construction documents and permits. Construction on the grade 7-12 school, which will cost the city $74.6 million after an $85 million state reimbursement, is slated to begin in April 2022 and end in August 2024. Arum said he and building committee co-chair Mario Longobucco have communicated with the translator for Ying Bao, a New York businessman who purchased the former Stone Container property along Summer Street. Bao is looking to buy an adjacent property for manufacturing, which could provide an opportunity for the district’s college-and-career pathways program.
