Bedford construction company to build an expansion at Pinkerton Academy

Eckman Construction, of Bedford, recently broke ground for two new buildings at Pinkerton Academy in Derry.

“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,” said Headmaster Mary Anderson.

The new buildings will provide expanded space for several of the career areas within the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. A two-story brick building on the school’s quad will accommodate architectural drafting, manufacturing, electrical, and natural sciences curriculums – 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 sitework 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 has been working as construction manager, general contractor, and design-builder in New England for more than 38 years.
