Bowdoin Celebrates the Ribbon Cutting of The Home for Little Wanderers
Bowdoin recently completed a major expansion project at The Home for Little Wanderers’ Longview Farm Campus and celebrated with the school at their formal ribbon cutting which was held on November 19th.
As Construction Manager, Bowdoin worked in conjunction with The Home’s staff, Northstar Project & Real Estate Services project managers, Roundel 47 architects, and Beals and Thomas, Inc. civil engineers to provide extensive pre-construction services and full general contracting services.

The project also involved a new entry drive, staff and visitor parking, improved septic system, improved storm water drainage / recharge system, new water service and new landscaping.
