PROCON Designer and CM
Portsmouth, NH – On July 17, The Kane Company was joined by business partners, team members, and local supporters as they raised the beam on a 65,000sf, Class A medical office building. PROCON owner Mark Stebbins and Jim Loft, co-president, turned out for the milestone occasion.
The Kane Company teamed up with longtime design-build partner PROCON of Manchester, who designed the four-story structure, and is the construction manager on the project.
The upcoming building, to be known as the Portsmouth Medical Park, is adjacent to the Jackson Gray medical facility and steps away from the Portsmouth Regional Hospital. It will be completed in summer 2020.
According to The Kane Company president and CEO, Michael Kane, the building was designed to support offices and labs in the medical community. “This area is a medical corridor on Borthwick Ave. As the medical community has continued to grow, we saw the need for another facility to support and service their increasing needs,” said Kane.
The commercial leasing space will offer tenants a variety of flexible floor plans that can be fitted-out according to their specifications. The first floor entrance was designed with a large overhang for vehicles to pull up and drop-off visitors, and it leads into a spacious lobby.
Large expanses of energy-efficient glass were incorporated throughout the design for minimizing UV rays while importing light. The exterior finishes include alternating colored metal panels for a contemporary look. Plans also include a 200-vehicle parking lot surrounding the structure that accesses the second floor on the building’s opposite side.
Among the local supporters was Josh Morris, CFO at HCA Portsmouth Regional Hospital, and Nancy Carmer, the economic development program manager for the city.
After taking turns signing the beam, the group watched as it was ceremoniously hoisted to the fourth floor and lowered into position, accompanied by cheers from the event participants below.
“As far as we are concerned, PROCON is simply the best in the industry,” said Kane. The Kane Company will also be working with HCA, the owners of Portsmouth Regional Hospital and the largest hospital corporation in America. He called them “an amazing group of people that deliver high quality care in the Portsmouth area.”
