The new Henry K. Oliver K-8 School is being constructed on the location of the former Oliver Elementary School and retains a portion of the existing historic structure. The 1,000-student school complex will combine the Oliver Elementary School and Oliver Middle School under one roof. The City of Lawrence has partnered with the Massachusetts School Building Authority, from which partial grant reimbursement will be received. Construction of the new School is ongoing with anticipated occupancy for the start of the academic year in the fall of 2025. Sustainable features have been incorporated into this project which is expected to receive a LEED Silver designation from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Construction has begun on our new building, and crews have installed dewatering risers at the perimeter of the site. Horizontal bracing for SOE was also installed, with excavation down to the second cut.
