SAU 21, Hampton Falls School District, selected Eckman Construction to lead the design/build team of an addition and renovations at Lincoln Akerman Elementary School in partnership with Lavallee Brensinger Architects.

The first floor of the two-story addition features a music room and two classrooms. The second floor features four additional classroom spaces. A phased approach was developed to allow construction to proceed safely during the school year while the campus was occupied. The project then transitioned to improvements within the existing building during the summer months, when the school was no longer occupied. Renovations included a new multi-purpose gymnasium floor, and the conversion of three classrooms into a new cafeteria space.

The project was completed in time for the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
