Holland School Exterior Wall Replacement
Due to a failing exterior wall system, the City of Boston and the Boston Public Schools department required a major remodeling of the John P. Holland School in Dorchester, MA. The project included removal of over 60,000 SF of exterior wall and window systems, including abatement of asbestos window caulking. Wherever walls were demolished, appropriate protection had to be installed to maintain the building in a weather tight condition. W.T. Rich replaced removed walls with new heavy gauge metal studs, dens glass sheathing, stucco plaster, metal wall panels and new metal windows throughout. Our work also included new roofing, new casework, electrical and plumbing modifications, and major HVAC upgrades. The project included several incentives for early completion of key milestones, all of which were achieved in full by W.T. Rich Company.
