CBT worked with The Fessenden School to create an Innovation Lab. CBT was requested to explore the creation of a new Innovation Center, where students would be exposed to hands-on problem solving. This new addition is envisioned to benefit all grades and are flexibly furnished, open studio environments for all types of curriculum and creative thinking projects. Approximately six locations adjoining the main buildings were identified on the campus, and three sites were deemed most viable given the open space and adjacencies to other parts of the campus. The choices were narrowed down to one site given its ideal proximity to the academic cluster.
CBT worked with The Fessenden School to create a detailed master plan for the arts including theater and visual arts, music, hockey and squash, and a new innovation center. The work included analysis of existing building and land assets, programming and space planning, concept studies and preliminary cost estimates for renovations and additions.
