State_of_NH-1Department of Health & Human
Services Office Renovation
Concord, New Hampshire

This project involved the complete interior renovation of an existing 31,000-square-foot, three story office building that stood empty for approximately five years.  Originally constructed as a hospital, the building was severely out of Code, particularly with respect to life safety, handicap accessibility, and egress. The renovation made the space into offices for the State of NH Health and Human Services Department. It included new stairwells, an elevator system, ramps, energy improvements, a new HVAC system, new electrical/telecommunications upgrades, and site designs.

The north end of the building included new office space.  The south wing included the new public entrance in addition to more new office space. The east wing included an open office environment, thereby creating flexibility for present and future users.
