Akin Learning Center, Kents Hill School

WCG Team

Project Specs

year completed

Gross floor area


Ask Peter Warren about building the Akin Learning Center and he’ll tell you about the Kents Hill School program housed there: “It’s a program that teaches a young person how to study effectively.” Along with the nuts and bolts of building, this is the kind of information that inspires us to do what we do. With a tight budget, we had to get creative in order to make a relatively low-cost building without diminishing quality. Collaborating closely with the Architect, we decided to use panelized construction to save time and money. In the end, the project was finished a month ahead of schedule.
