Originally opened in 1923, Stoughton High School has undergone numerous renovations and additions in its nearly 100 year history. The most recent study recommended new construction due to the age of the building, HAZMAT issues including asbestos and lead; aging and inefficient electrical, water infiltration, and HVAC systems; and structural deficiencies plague the existing high school. Further, the building did not meet ADA standards and was undersized and outdated. After examining several alternatives, including another round of renovations and additions, the town of Stoughton overwhelmingly voted to raze the existing school and build a new, state of the art high school on the same site.

CES is providing full MEP/FP design for the new 216,000 sf high school. It is anticipated the total construction will cost upwards of $123.5 million. In addition to the school building, the project also includes the construction of athletic facilities, a grass soccer field, track, five tennis courts, and a multi-sport artificial turf field. Stoughton High School is pursuing LEED silver certification integrating energy efficiency measures and sustainable features into the overall design. The CES MEP/FP design includes an LED lighting control system, variable refrigerant volume systems, demand control ventilation for large volume spaces and dedicated outdoor air system for classrooms.
