The inclusive planning process encompassed interviews with all faculty and staff members, a series of interactive workshops with school leaders and other members of the academic community, and assessment of existing buildings, infrastructure, and mechanical systems.

Centerbrook’s planning effort focused its findings on building interiors, increased energy efficiency, and further stewardship opportunities on school’s bucolic property.

An independent school for pre-kindergarten through ninth-grade students, Berkshire Country Day was founded in 1946 and is set on the 27-acre Brooks Farm, which once was home to Andrew Carnegie and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The school sends its graduates on to independent high schools such as Hotchkiss and Groton.
