Hanscom Air Force Base AFB proposes to replace the existing Hanscom Middle School. The proposed action includes the construction of a 85,000SF, two story building along with associated site improvements, including paving, parking, and utilities to accommodate 310 students from 4th through 8th grade. The project site location contains the existing Middle School along with the existing Primary School. Shared spaces, like cafeteria seating and the central receiving area, will need to remain operational until the new school is brought on line. This creates the need for phased construction. Phased building demolition of the existing Middle School would also be required in order to accommodate both the new construction and ongoing school operations. Also, temporary swing space facilities would be required during construction and deconstructed after completion of the proposed action. Facilities would be designed in accordance with DoDEA Education Facilities Specifications, Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility ADA Guidelines, National Fire Protection Association Life Safety Code, Standards of Seismic Safety for Federally Owned Buildings, and energy and water conservation standards. Sustainable design would be integrated into the design in accordance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design LEED for Schools Silver criteria. The proposed action would also comply with Executive Order 13514 Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance and Guiding Principles for Federal Leadership in High Performance and Sustainable Buildings.
