Dedication Ceremony for Northfield Mount Hermon Gilder Center

Beautiful evening for the dedication ceremony of the new Gilder Center at Northfield Mount Hermon School last night! The building is stunning and the team moved mountains to deliver this project on time and on budget in just 22 months from designer / CM selection to completion. Many beautiful and sustainable elements including the granite facade sourced from New Hampshire, slate siding sourced locally from Vermont, and of course the hybrid Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) structure. Great TEAM effort with Flansburgh Architects and Scalora Consulting Group!
