Barnstable New Early Learning Center

By the start of the 2015-2016 school year, Barnstable Public Schools will have a new permanent modular Early Learning Center (6 classrooms) for all our Pre-K students to call their own. With the groundbreaking ceremony just around the corner, I would like to look back at the process that has brought us to this point and what we have to look forward to.

Having a designated early learning center had been talked about for the past several years, along with removing the portable trailers at Hyannis West and BWB. Last spring, we worked with TBA Architects, Inc. to come up with a design for the modular construction and removal of the portables at Hyannis West and BWB (floor plan shown below). 

In the early fall of 2014, we put out a bid for the new modular Early Learning Center project with a projected completion date of February 2015. Bids for the project came in over 50% more the estimated $2 million cost from the architects. The project was re-bid with a completion date of August 2015 and the bids came in slightly higher than the $2 million estimate. The School Committee and Town Council voted to approve additional funds for the Early Learning Center in late 2014.   

Triumph Modular won the bid for the new modular Early Learning Center project. The final decision on the design for the project’s first phase has been decided and the contract between Triumph Modular and the Town of Barnstable has been signed. The discussion for the naming of the new Early Learning Center began at January’s School Committee Meeting and will be a focus of the School Committee at the February 4 meeting, whereby there will be a public hearing on the naming of the facility.  Following the groundbreaking, surveying the site and site preparation will commence. The modular units will be delivered and installed this spring. The Early Learning Center will open at the start of the 2015-2016 school year. Phases II and III of the project consist of removing the current portable trailers at Hyannis West and BWB.

I would like to give a special thank you to the School Committee, Town Council, Town Manager Tom Lynch, and Finance Director Mark Milne for their unwavering support on the Early Learning Center project. Also deserving of thanks is Director of Facilities Dave Kanyock, Deputy Director of Finance Gareth Markwell, and Principals Kathi Amato and Frank Gigliotti for their time, effort, and input on the project. The project is coming together wonderfully and in a few months all of your hard work will be realized!
