Massachusetts School Building Authority Green Repair Projects – Roofs and Windows
12 Schools, Springfield, Massachusetts

Over the past four years, Gale has been awarded design service contracts for 12 schools for the City of Springfield. Five Schools (Duggan, Talmadge, Beal, Ellis and Lynch) involved replacement of existing window systems. Eight schools (Duggan, Gerena, Glickman, Kiley, Ellis, Johnson, Liberty, Homer) required removal and replacement of the existing roof assemblies.

For all projects, the window/roof designs comply with the Massachusetts State Building Code / “Stretch Energy Code”, which required an R-Value of 25 for roofing and a U-Value of 0.45 for windows. Gale’s design services included in depth field evaluations followed by schematic design submissions including cost estimates, roof/window options, prioritized replacement programs, and design criteria. These submissions were followed by design documents for bidding and construction period services.
