Harford County Ag Center

We welcome you to explore the construction services that NPB has to offer.

Harford County Ag Center

­­North Point Builders was the General Contractor for the new Harford County Agricultural Center in Street, Maryland. The County wanted an agricultural center where their services could be consolidated and the local farming heritage could be preserved. The new facility is a central and convenient location for the various agricultural agencies including the University of Maryland Agricultural Extension Office, State of Maryland Department of Forest Pest Management, State of Maryland Harford Soil Conservation District, and Harford County Farm Bureau.

North Point Builders completed a renovation of the 15,000 square foot facility. The interior of the building, including all plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems, was demoed to the original structure. Due to occupancy changes, upgrades to the existing well and septic systems were required. The efficiency of the building envelope was increased by adding spray foam insulation to the existing masonry and wood structure. Two new storefront entrances were added to enhance the look of the building and to fulfill ADA access requirements. The interior space was configured to include new offices, administrative spaces, conference room, storage areas, and restrooms.

In addition to the renovation, North Point Builders provided delegated design and construction services for the new 1,500 square foot Butler pre-engineered metal building (PEMB). Utilizing a PEMB offered an economical and time-saving approach to building a space to accommodate the agricultural material and ground equipment storage needs. The PEMB not only provided the functional needs for the ag center, but also allowed the storage facility to compliment the architectural style of the ag center.

Special Qualities

The rural property that Harford County acquired for this project included a historical house, furniture store, and small parking area located adjacent to farmland. Given the constraints of the project site and the existing building positions, the only available location for the new parking lot and vehicle entrance conflicted with the existing power distribution. North Point Builders collaborated with Harford County, the Design Team, Delmarva Power, and the Maryland State Highway Administration to develop a plan to remove the existing power, provide new power distribution, and construct the new entrance. Because power distribution was on the critical path of the schedule, it was essential for Delmarva to accelerate their schedule in order to meet the project delivery date. North Point Builders stayed in close contact with Delmarva Power to ensure there were no delays. By keeping Delmarva Power informed and ensuring they were able to complete their work while other construction activities were ongoing, the project progressed smoothly and was completed on time.
