  • The MSBA partners with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally-appropriate, flexible, sustainable, and cost-effective public school facilities.

  • On behalf of the owner, an OPM oversees the entire project and reports directly to the owner, always acting on their instructions and in their best interest.

    Vertex Companies, LLC. Vertex was the Town’s OPM on the Public Safety Building and Senior Center projects and assisted with the Humarock Fire Station.

  • Dore + Whittier Architects of Newburyport, MA. Dore + Whittier has experience working with the Town on the Public Safety Building and the Gates Middle School project.


We have also established a district-based educational workgroup to continue the work of the initial Visioning Team that proposed this project in 2019. Much like the strategic planning process, we will be mapping out what will drive our students’ educational experiences to guide the long-term development of education and facilities for the Scituate Public Schools. A culture of excellence and collaboration are the foundational pillars of this workgroup.

The educational workgroup comprises approximately 30 people from various groups within Scituate: educators, administrators, school committee members, parents, and students.
