Bedford, NH – Construction of the new Job Corps Center on Dunbarton Road in Manchester is progressing on schedule, reports Eckman Construction, the General Contractor for the project. Nine acres of the 19-acre site was cleared, over 90,000 cubic yards of ledge was blasted, and the campus buildings where young people will live, study, and learn a trade are now under construction. The buildings that will make up the center include dormitories, a classroom building, recreation facility, dining, a wellness/ administration building, and a gatehouse. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2015.
Job Corps Centers are funded through the Department of Labor, and they currently train more than 60,000 students at 125 centers nationwide. The NH Job Corps Center was designed by Miller Dyer Spears, Inc. of Boston, and the construction contract was awarded to Eckman Construction last spring.
Eckman Construction, based in Bedford, has been working as a Construction Manager, General Contractor, and Design-Builder in New Hampshire for over 39 years.
