UMFK invites public to architects’ preview

FORT KENT, Maine — The University of Maine at Fort Kent will hold a community presentation to inform the public of their upcoming facilities master plan. On Tuesday, March 14, at 6 p.m. in the Nadeau Teleconference Room, representatives from Harriman Associates will present their final draft of the comprehensive facilities master plan.

UMFK has worked with Harriman Associates for nearly a year to develop a comprehensive facilities master plan that will hopefully serve as the blueprint for the campus for the next 10 years. As part of their charge, Harriman architects and others from the company met with a wide variety of on-campus and off-campus groups to ask for input on the strengths and challenges related to the campus now and in the future.   

While the plan will pay a great deal of attention to facilities in terms of roofs and HVAC systems, it will also deal with recommendations on the kinds of spaces that will be needed to accomplish UMFK’s mission in the future.   

Located in Auburn, Harriman has a long-standing history of architectural design in Maine, including the Margaret Chase Smith Federal Building in Bangor and the proposed Cumberland County Courthouse in Portland.
