Met breaks ground on East Bay campus

Posted 4/8/13

PROVIDENCE – The Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical School broke ground on the Paul W. Crowley East Bay Campus, named after the late state representative, earlier this month.

The Met’s new campus, which is planned to be the first net-zero state facility in conjunction with the R.I. Department of Education, is meant to help continue Crowley’s legacy of demanding excellence in public education.

The R.I. Department of Education is pursuing a design-build approach for the campus with an anticipated completion this year. Staff and students of the Easy Bay Met campus will be committed to the efficient use of the facility and to teach and learn about sustainability, green technologies and the environment.

The building project will comply with the department’s school-construction regulations and the Northeast Collaborative for High Performance Schools. The campus will maximize renewable energy sources available on site and minimize energy consumption with an air-tight, well-insulated exterior envelope.

The Met is a network of six small, public high schools in Providence and Newport.

Met campuses have an emphasis on strong family engagement and individualized learning. •
