One of the missions of TMS Architects is to, “…embrace our clients’ visions and translate them into buildings that are beautiful, functional, and sensitive to their environment.” Recently, we’ve had the opportunity to do just that while partnering with Opportunity Works on the design and build-out of their new 37,000 square foot facility.
Opportunity Works New Portsmouth Facility Embraces Style, Functionality and Accessibility
Located in Haverhill and Newburyport, the dedicated and compassionate team of Opportunity Works’s employees and volunteers helps local adults with disabilities to lead full and productive lives. Their campus is open five days a week, working to educate, train, and place adults with developmental and acquired disabilities from around the Merrimack Valley region in rewarding employment positions. Opportunity Works is so successful that it’s now time to expand and build a new facility here in Portsmouth, next to the North Essex Community College campus.
We’re proud to be the design/build team for Opportunity Works’s new campus and have worked closely with their construction committee to achieve a comprehensive design that is highly sensitive to the needs of the buildings’ occupants as well as attractive, cheerful and 100% accessible.
