On the Boards: South Hadley Plains School On the Boards: South Hadley Plains School

Dodson & Flinker is collaborating with Margo Jones Architects on the design of a new early learning center (pre-K through 1st grade) in South Hadley. The project is currently wrapping up schematic design under the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) program. Throughout the spring and early summer Dodson & Flinker assisted the design team and building committee in choosing a preferred site among three town-owned options. Moving ahead with the site of the existing Plains Elementary School, we have been exploring options for locating the school building, parking, bus and vehicle circulation, and outdoor play and learning space while preserving significant site assets including a trail, a knoll and a grove of mature oak trees.
