The Kearsarge School District chose Eckman to help them work toward a successful bond vote to build a replacement for their aging New London middle school.
Through extensive pre-construction work, our Value Engineering provided significant savings. These savings were used to add a wood-chip fired heating system to the project — a separate building was built adjacent to the school to house the boiler, which is the school’s primary source of heat.
KRMS contains a multi-use gym with a stage, locker rooms, cafeteria, and library/media center in addition to 42 classrooms and administrative spaces. The 3-color scheme throughout the building gives way to one color for each grade. Each team of classrooms are grouped around a common area with lockers, restrooms and meeting spaces.
