Bradford Area Community Center, Bradford NH
Conversion of the town-owned 1937 brick Central School provides Bradford, NH with a cooperatively managed Center for community programs. Designed to accommodate a senior center, preschool/ kindergarten, youth center, community kitchen, and health and administrative offices, the building was made accessible with a new rear entrance & wheelchair lift. Truly a community project, the Center was financed by a combination of private and business donations, grants, and community development funds. With a local construction firm providing management, much of the work was done by volunteers, including the local Habitat for Humanity chapter.
Project involvement: Barbara Mehren Freeman: Architect of Record, Principal in Charge responsible for design. Pamela Hanson: design development through construction administration team, Project Architect responsible for construction documents while with Mehren Freeman Architects.
