Buildings and Grounds

Mission Statement

The Buildings and Grounds department is responsible for the maintenance and operations of seven buildings and several out buildings totaling 520,000 square feet and over 65 acres of grounds. We are committed to providing a clean and safe environment for the students, faculty and staff. 

The North Shore Buildings and Grounds Department will work closely with BBS Architects, Landscape Architects & Engineers and Savin Engineers PC, Construction Managers. We will meet weekly with all of the contractors to keep the projects moving forward and have them completed on time. The Construction Steering Committee will meet monthly or more as needed to keep the Board of Education up to date on our progress.

The Buildings and Grounds staff will also work diligently towards completing all of the projects outlined in the 2017-2018 budget. It is our goal to utilize the summer months to complete as much work as possible. This will be in conjunction with the normal summer cleaning of all of the building to ready them for the next school year.
