NH Historical Society and The H.L. Turner Group Receive Preservation Award

Concord, NH – On May 10, the N.H. Preservation Alliance announced eleven awards for outstanding historic preservation projects.  The New Hampshire Historical Society received one of these coveted awards for work completed on the building in collaboration with The H.L. Turner Group.

According to N.H. Historical Society President, William Dunlap, “The New Hampshire Historical Society chose H.L. Turner to help us develop and evaluate possible approaches to modernizing the climate control systems in our historic National Register-listed building.  In addition to mechanical systems, the project also involved reconstructing skylight systems covering 40% of our roof area, which were highly inefficient.  Following the preliminary planning process, H.L. Turner designed and engineered the ultimate systems to meet these challenges.

This was a complex project due to the historic nature of the building.  H.L. Turner handled the project with sensitivity, worked extremely well with other vendor team members, and delivered a design that worked flawlessly.”

The N.H. Preservation Alliance awards recognize individuals, organizations, and businesses in the categories of restoration and stewardship, rehabilitation, compatible new construction, public policy, and educational and planning initiatives across the state.
