Shaping spaces for scholars.

Colliers Project Leaders provided project management services for the Athletic Field Renovation project at the Miss Porter’s School. This project included converting three fields from natural grass to synthetic turf including some reconfiguration of the land to accommodate the new layout. The project also included the creation of more prominent entries to each field as well as construction of a few support buildings including storage and restroom facilities.

As the project manager, we were directly responsible for developing a project scope, timeline and budget, facilitating the hiring of the design team, performing design reviews at the completion of schematic design and construction documentation phases, reviewing the construction schedule and monitoring compliance, maintaining a project financial status report and reviewing with Miss Porter’s School, and meeting with Miss Porter’s School Administrators, as required, to provide any status updates of the project.

In addition, we are currently providing project management services for the new $23 Million, 24,000 square foot Community Life Building which will serve as the new entrance to the 40-acre campus. This project is scheduled to be completed in 2020.

The Community Life Building will provide Miss Porter’s with:

  • Functional and social spaces comprised of a dining hall and kitchen, commons encircled with student lounges, a café and a quiet room with a fireplace.
  • A new entrance to the 40-acre campus that will welcome day students and visitors at the perimeter of the grounds, creating a safer and more efficient environment.
  • An anchor to the south end of the historic main campus that will create a natural quad centered by beloved Brooks Field.
  • LEED certification that aligns with the school’s commitment to sustainable and energy efficient practices.
  • A “Women Through Time” interior exhibit that celebrates prominent alumnae, affectionately known as the “Ancients.”
