Plaistow, NH – Joseph A. Barbone Jr., president and chief executive officer of Methuen Construction Company, Inc., and New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan were joined by state and local dignitaries and project team members at groundbreaking ceremonies held in Plaistow recently for the construction of the new headquarters of Methuen Construction Company, Inc., Summit Metal Fabricating, and Methuen Construction Facility services currently headquartered in Salem.
The combined companies plan to move in the late spring of 2016 into a renovated and expanded 178,000sf facility on approximately 35 acres of land in Plaistow. Part of the existing structure at the site will be demolished, and 35,000sf of new office space will be built for a total 180,000sf of space for the incoming firms.
This move will help support the company vision and will allow the creation of approximately 250 jobs over the next 10 years for a total of 400 employees. Additionally, the massive space will allow Summit Metal Fabricators to accommodate larger modular fabrications and process skid prefabrication projects.
Summit Metal Fabricators will greatly benefit from the added shop space and overhead cranes. This will allow for additional fabrication services such as large modular fabrications, process skid fabrication and assembly, prefabricated pipe racks, pedestrian walkways, and more.
The expected renovation cost is approximately $8 million. All new heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electrical, paving, landscaping, fire protection, and gas lines are part of the renovations and new construction.
