In late February 2015 renovation work began on the existing wood framed house at 254 Maine Street that became the Office of Student Aid. The renovation scope included a new enclosed stairway and removal of the existing exterior fire escape. A new ADA compliant entrance and restroom was provided in a space that was formally an art studio. Exterior envelope improvements included spray foam insulation, windows and siding. The building is now protected by new sprinkler and fire alarm systems. A completely new electrical service has been installed and the office spaces have new high efficiency LED lighting. Occupancy was completed a month ahead of schedule in July 2015.
