Academy Building architect to be selected


The town hopes to choose an architect for the Academy Building renovation by Feb. 28, Town Manager Michael Dutton said in an interview. The $8.8 million project will restore the prominent late-1800s structure, which faces the green at Central Square, for town offices. He said “quite a number” of prospective architects visited the site in late January, and statements of qualifications were due in his office Thursday. Town staff will review the applications to make sure they meet the requirements and then submit them to the Municipal Building Committee, which will probably choose two or three to interview, he said. Dutton will select the architect based on its recommendation.
