The Town of Andover determined that the Bancroft Elementary School had exceeded its useful life and that a new building was the best long-term solution. Dore + Whittier was chosen by the Town and MSBA to act as the Owner’s Project Manager.
Adjacent to the operating Bancroft Elementary School, the construction site was carefully and securely separated from any school activity. Major site enhancements include a new curb cut and access road, improved parking and traffic routing, new sports fields, and playgrounds. Grades K–5 students are now schooled in a 21st century learning environment with the latest technology and teaching spaces to provide the best environment for the teachers and students. The building layout provides segregated areas for individual grades with common classroom spaces for art, music, gym, library, and media center activities. The project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
