Hammond School updated the campus facilities with the addition of the Innovation Center to enhance their programs and student curriculums.
Our scope of work included working with maple solids and veneers, plastic laminates, solid surfaces, and metalwork. The majority of the project was fabricated in-house, with the exception of metalwork framing.
Storage is important for classroom organization and we provided the casework to fulfill that need. Wall and base cabinets featured open shelving and concealed storage behind doors with concealed hinges. In many classrooms, base cabinets extended the length of the room to provide ample storage and workstations on the solid surface countertops. Shelving for both were manufactured with adjustable pins to meet the storage space requirements.
Millwork manufactured using maple solids was also provided for the project. The glass cube classrooms include a clear finish sill around the cube and the entrance. In a matching finish, open entrance casings at the entrances of the first and second floor classroom wings were installed.
A feature highlight of the Natural Sciences wing is the aquarium. Our engineering team worked with our metalworking partner to design and build a frame support to hold the enormous aquarium. Our team engineered the aquarium enclosure to be fully accessible at the top and the bottom from both sides. Concealed hinges and pneumatic struts were integrated to create the hidden panel doors. The results gave the appearance of an aquarium inset into the wall with maple wood wall panels in a natural finish.
A lot goes into what we do and how we do it. Meet the team that makes it happen.
