Little Harbor Elementary School
Banwell Architects teamed with EEI on a design build energy performance project to make energy and mechanical improvements for the Portsmouth School District. The design involved converting the ‘60s model of operable partitions at classrooms to fixed partitions. Lots of glass in the new corridor walls allows natural light into the core of the building while achieving acoustic separation between learning spaces.
The overall scope of work included:
- Removal of asbestos ceiling tile and flooring
- Installation of a NFPA compliant sprinkler and fire alarm system.
- Installation of a new boiler, HVAC controls, and energy recovery ventilators.
- Installation of new ceiling tiles and grid, including decorative ceiling in cafeteria.
- Installation of LED lighting system.
- New finishes and casework throughout the building.
