Skanska USA Building recently awarded W. L. French the site enabling contract for the proposed renovations and expansion to Belmont Middle & High Schools.

W. L. French played several roles in the work of Belmont Middle & High School, including completing early site enabling, pile foundations, building excavation, site grading, utility work, and site finishes. This was a logistically challenging project, requiring our team to participate in intensive operational planning and scheduling sessions with the construction manager. Our team worked hard to ensure all project goals were met.

Designed by Perkins+Will, Belmont Middle & High School included a multi-phased renovation and new construction of over 445,000 SF of building. Our team worked while ensuring safe access for over 2,500 students and teachers who occupied the existing building during construction.
