Another major difference between the old system and the new is the implementation of a model school program, which allows districts to speed up their projects and save on design costs by modeling their school on an already existing building.
Natick took advantage of the program, basing its new school on Whitman-Hanson Regional High. Natick High School (left) is due for completion in June.
For us, what was appealing was the time factor, said Natick Superintendent Peter Sanchioni. We were able to condense the construction time.
