SAU 31, The Newmarket School District, has selected Eckman Construction to be the Construction Manager on additions and renovations at both the Newmarket Jr./Sr. High School and the Newmarket Elementary School. The Newmarket School Facilities Committee has carefully vetted many design options developed by Banwell Architects of Lebanon, NH and has decided to move forward with additions and renovations at both schools. With 75% support, Newmarket residents approved a warrant article for the school district improvements during town elections in March of 2017.

The design at the Newmarket Jr./Sr. High School features over 50,000 square feet of additions along with comprehensive renovations to the existing space. The design is intended to increase classroom space, offer a more secure main entrance, connect circulation loops, provide daylight in most instructional spaces and consolidate art classrooms among other positive changes. The Newmarket Elementary School calls for 22,000 square feet of additions and extensive renovations. A new gymnasium along with Grade-5, Pre-Kindergarten and flex classrooms comprise the additions to the facility.

Construction will begin in the spring of 2018.
