Hunter Roberts provided general contracting services to The Friends Academy for the $5 million renovation of the Lower School (Pre-K thru 5th grade). The renovation included a complete overhaul of the heating and A/C systems, including the replacement of the three oil boilers with three gas boilers, and the addition of a new chiller unit on the roof, all of which provide heating and cooling in each new classroom. The flat roof of the lower school was replaced, and the mansard roof was re-shingled. The windows were replaced in all of the classrooms to match the adjacent buildings. The new construction divided the previous “open plan classrooms” into separate classrooms for each grade, which was detailed with all new shelving along with carpet, vinyl tile, and paint.
