Pingree School South Hamilton Massachusetts is a client we have had the privilege of serving for many years. In 1960, Mr. and Mrs. Sumner Pingree gave their home and fifty acres of land as the site of the school. Pingree opened the following year as a school for girls. In 1971 the school became coeducational.
The Mary Weld Pingree Center for the Performing Arts, which houses a 425-seat theatre, art rooms, music rooms and additional classrooms, was completed in 1987 with complete sprinkler protection provided by Metro-Swift.
We provided the sprinkler system for the H. Alden Johnson, Jr. Rink in 1988.
In 2004, the new Academic Center consisting of over 25,000 square feet of state-of-the-art teaching and learning space opened, complete with sprinkler and standpipe systems. Metro-Swift was awarded an excellence in construction certificate of commendation by the Associated Builders and Contractors for our work.
We are nearing completion of new fire sprinkler systems in the existing cafeteria, kitchen, locker rooms, the Weld Field House and the library. While a great deal of planning went into the entire sprinkler retrofit project, what we are most proud of is the installation of fire sprinklers in the existing mansion that was constructed in 1941.
