Sargent Family Community Center

The new Sargent Family Community Center incorporates spaces for all ages and abilities to gather and play with a gymnasium, indoor walking track, teen center, senior center, and multi-purpose room. The project included designs for a new outdoor swimming pool and pool house to be built in the future.

Harriman developed a master plan that integrates several programs and activities in a cohesive manner. The site plan anticipates new traffic and pedestrian patterns, parking requirements, and recreation field activities adjacent to an existing, riverside city park.

Building for community and efficiency

This building was designed to qualify for Efficiency Maine’s Advanced Buildings program. The program promotes energy efficiency through integrated design strategies and rigorous compliance, verification, and commissioning processes.

Systems contributing to the successful design included air to air heat pumps, high efficiency condensing boilers, LED lighting systems, and strategic, daylight-enhancing fenestration design. The Community Center’s overall efficiency exceeds a baseline, code-compliant model by 25%.

  • The remarkable transformation of a remediated brownfield site – formerly an oil tank farm – enhances the civic and cultural landscape of this vibrant northern Maine community.
