To create a space on a tight budget within the campus to fulfill their art department's desire to develop an inspirational work area.
Provided construction site plan with drainage details to direct stormwater away from the renovated building.
Formerly a boat shed from the days when this campus was better known as Fort Preble, this building has metamorphosed into a place of discovery. Views of how the building appeared before renovations compared with how it is now being used today fully compliments the efforts of all the team members to follow through to its completion. Students now are able to create sculptures while overlooking a stunning view of adjacent Casco Bay Islands with natural lighting illuminating their space.
"You were instrumental in the success of pulling off this non-standard building renovation, and I truly appreciate all your extra efforts on the small but powerful project. It was very rewarding to turn a derelict building into a beautiful space that will contribute to the education and inspiration of the students. They have had many compliments and requests to use the space for other functions."
