Lebanon Middle School local contactor Trumbull-Nelson, has received three awards for Construction Excellence for their work on the Lebanon Middle School project. The first award the project and Trumbull received was the Chairman’s Award, in the category Institutional/Public Over $10 million. This award is the highest award, and the first of its kind in any of the previous year’s categories. The second award was the Community Service Award based on Trumbull’s participation in neighborhood meetings and public forums with the school district. The third award was the Sustainable Building Award given in response to the Banwell Architect designs for a Northeast Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) project. A CHPS design is based on design standards for schools from pre-K through community colleges that meet many sustainable and environmental criteria.
These awards were announced at the New Hampshire/Vermont Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors annual event on October 24th at the Concord Capital Center for the Arts. Accepting the awards were representatives from Trumbull-Nelson, Banwell Architects and Laura Dykstra, Lebanon School Board member and Lebanon Middle School Building Committee Chair.
The Lebanon Middle School opened this fall on-time and below budget to 454 students. The school Co-Principals, Martha Langill and Andrew Mellow are pleased with the space, lighting and many conveniences the new building provides.
