SOUTHBRIDGE — Although the new Southbridge High School is more than a year away from completion, it is unquestionably showing signs of life.

According to John Laperle, Consigli Job Superintendent, the steel work on the structure is between 65 to 70 percent done. Consigli is the construction company working on the school.

One of the more interesting features of the new school facility is that there will be a road surrounding it, allowing for maintenance trucks and police and fire vehicles to enter any part of the school.

Currently, there are no specific names for the schools. Both middle and high schools have been labeled as simply "the high school" and "the middle school."

"Things have pretty much gone as expected," said Consigli Project Manager Dara Colleary. "We come to the projects early, during pre-construction, so a lot of the issues we come up against, if we weren't brought on early, we'd have a tough time with. We've come along as a team early on in the process instead of coming on as a construction manager once the documents have been finalized. If we have any input, it enables us to provide it at that point."
