The Land Port of Entry (LPOE), for the Department of Homeland Security is a new facility located in Hamlin Maine. This building has been designed to aid in the protection of the border crossing between Canada and the United States of America.

The design of the LPOE building is sensitive to the fabric of the local and regional architectural vernacular. The building emulates the materials and colors of the neighboring community. By drawing from these influences, the LPOE will present an inviting and welcoming atmosphere to travelers, as well as create harmony with the architectural esthetics of the local community. In addition the building will be designed to be thermally efficient by the use of proper cold climate and LEED design principals.


Presentations | Eagle Mill

This movie describes the turbulent history of P&S Construction's Corporate Headquarters' office building. Eagle Mill burned down multiple times and was neglected for many years prior to P&S Construction discovering the beautiful Massachusetts landmark.

"We've engaged in such a positive project: it revitalizes a dilapidated building that was wearing on a residentital neighborhood; it is environmentally responsible; it preserves a historic building; and the employees of P&S Construction will work in a dynamic new space." - Robert W. Hannon, AIA, VP of Design

LEED | White Moutains Administrative Complex

White Mountains Administrative Complex, Campton, NH
With the first week of fall upon us, I always remember when P&S Construction went to the ribbon cutting ceremony in Campton, NH for the White Mountains Administrative Complex project. It was late September 2009 and it was the most ideal time to travel to northern New Hampshire and see the beautiful foliage and to celebrate the hard work and ultimate success of the Administrative Complex project.

What makes this building a standout in P&S Construction’s portfolio is the the massive steel structure frame, the 16 ft high concrete foundation, the beautiful and intricate wood work throughout the facility and the commitment the USDA/ Forest Services went to incorporate groundbreaking sustainable design and construction features.
