DERRY — Eckman Construction recently broke ground for two new buildings at Pinkerton Academy in Derry. They will provide expanded space for several programs within the school's Center for Career and Technical Education, one of 16 CTE centers at high schools throughout the state.
"We are very pleased with the Academy Building Eckman recently built for us, and are happy to welcome their team back to our campus for another project," headmaster Mary Anderson said.
The new buildings will provide expanded space for several of the career areas within the CTE program. A two-story brick building on the school's quad will accommodate architectural drafting, manufacturing, electrical, and natural sciences curricula, including laboratories and a greenhouse.
The second building will house both the animal science and cosmetology curriculums in separate sections of a single-story wood frame building.
In addition to these two new structures, Eckman will also renovate spaces in Pinkerton's Shepherd and Low Buildings, and add a new canopy on the Piper Building as classes within CTE are relocated.
Eckman will also complete the site work and concrete slab for a third new building to be completed by the students in the Building Trades Program. Marinace Architects of New Hampton designed the project.
Eckman Construction, based in Bedford, has been working in New England for more than 38 years.
