The Metrowest Daily News reports that construction on the new Fay primary school off Middle Road is cruising right along. They’re ahead of schedule and hope to have the building open by the beginning of the summer.
The article touts the school’s melding of old and new on the campus:
“I think the idea was to build a New England-looking village that will keep the feel of Southborough’s roots,” [Fay School marketing director Greg Anderson] said.
Original construction plans called for demolishing the Goodnow House, built in 1819. A compromise was later reached with selectmen for the school to integrate the new addition with the old house.
“The new building is attached to the back of the house,” said Anderson. “Fay has always invested resources and great effort in maintaining historic campus buildings and I can tell you this one is being treated with tender loving care.”
