City-Wide Community Center

Renovation and Addition
Concord, New Hampshire

The City of Concord, NH commissioned the H.L.  Turner Group (TTG) to evaluate the former Dame School in Concord, NH.  The school had been vacated by the school district when new elementary schools were constructed.  The Dame School now houses the City Community Center and the administrative offices headquarters for the City’s Parks and Recreation.  

We provided architectural and engineering services for a total renovation of the 1960’s wing of the building into program and exercise rooms, and demolition of the 1940’s wing, and  construction of a new gymnasium, office, lobby, locker rooms and teaching kitchen.  In addition, entrances were placed both on the front of the building and on the side adjacent to Keach Park to aid in accessibility. 

In addition, we designed for  future energy standards in a sustainably-designed building that will require little future maintenance.
