Cape Elizabeth School Building Project to host design workshop

With the April 11, 2022 Town Council approval of a bond order to complete a schematic design, the School Board's Building Oversight Committee has scheduled a series of workshops to facilitate the charge.  On Wednesday, May 18 at 5:30 p.m. the committee will first provide tours of both the elementary and middle schools for members of the public.  Immediately following the tours, a "design charette" will take place in the Pond Cove/Cape Elizabeth Middle School Cafetorium at 6:30 p.m.  A design charette is an intensive workshop in which attendees are asked to engage in a collaborative process of design development.  Colby Co. and Simons Architects, who have been selected to complete a schematic design by the end of summer, will be present to discuss different design options and ideas.  All are welcomed and encouraged to participate.

Two future workshops will be offered on Wednesday, June 15:  

  1. 5:30 p.m. will focus on right-sizing design based on student population and will be held via Zoom 
  2. 6:30 p.m. will focus on school floor-plan design  and will be held in person at the cafetorium
