Connolly Brothers, Inc. announces that it has completed construction on New England Academy's new South Shore campus at 51 Commerce Way in Marshfield, Mass. New England Academy is a private special education school devoted to providing students in grades 7 through 12 with the academic challenge and clinical support they need to succeed in school. The 28,055 square-foot campus building complements the school's 40,000 square-foot North Shore campus in Beverly's Cherry Hill Business Park. Using the design-build model, Connolly Brothers served as architect and construction manager for both projects.

“Connolly Brothers has been a great partner in helping New England Academy achieve its campus dreams and providing a space where our students can flourish," says Dr. Ryan Plosker, executive director and founder of New England Academy, which is welcoming its first class of new students to the Marshfield campus this week.

Responding to NEA's needs with preconstruction services such as site selection, feasibility studies, estimating, permitting, and budgeting, Connolly helped the school in planning, designing, and building the new campus, which features state-of-the-art classrooms, a gymnasium, and an athletic field. The campus allows NEA to serve more students with social and emotional needs, delivering a challenging academic program within a therapeutic setting. The project team included BLW Engineers Inc. (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing), Stenbeck & Taylor, Inc. (civil engineering), JSN Associates, LLC (structural engineering), and James K. Emmanuel Associates (landscape architecture), among many others.

“We were honored to return for New England Academy's expansion," says Jay Connolly, president of Connolly Brothers. “Having seen the faculty and staff at NEA in action, it is gratifying to deliver facilities where major progress will occur in so many students' lives."
