Opened in 1923, the existing Stoughton High School has had numerous renovations and additions in the nearly 100 year history of the school. Due to the age of the building, HAZMAT issues including asbestos and lead; aging and inefficient electrical ,water infiltration, and HVAC systems; and structural deficiencies plague the existing high school. Further, the building does not meet current ADA standards and, over capacity, the existing building is undersized and outdated. After examining several alternatives, including another round of renovations and additions, the town of Stoughton overwhelmingly voted to raze the existing school and build a new, state of the art high school, on the same site.

Working with the selected architect, CES is providing full MEP/ FP design through construction administration  for the new 216,000 sq. ft. high school. It is anticipated the total construction will cost upwards of $123.5 million and the project also includes construction of new athletic facilities, a  grass soccer field, a track, five tennis courts, and a multi-sport artificial turf field. Stoughton High School is pursuing LEED silver certification integrating energy efficiency measures and sustainable features into the overall design. The CES MEP/ FP design includes a LED lighting control system, variable refrigerant volume systems, demand control ventilation for large volume spaces and dedicated outdoor air system for classrooms.
