Project Details

Location Bangor
Project Cost $1.1 Million
Owner Challenger Learning Center
Architect John Gordon
Delivery Model Design-Build

When local educators and community leaders came together to bring the recognized, space-based Challenger Learning program to Maine, they brought on Nickerson & O’Day, Inc. as their Design-Build partner.

After Nickerson & O’Day visited a Challenger Learning Center program in Virginia and completed the CLC program there, we teamed with local architect John Gordon to create the Challenger Learning Center of Maine – located in a long-vacant theatre building at the decommissioned Dow Air Force Base in Bangor.

Within the building, Nickerson & O’Day created the elaborate Space Station and Mission Control rooms along with a breathtaking two-story lobby and adjacent CLC Store.

Work was completed on-time and 3 1/2% under its $1,100,000 budget.
