Lebanon, NH – North Branch Construction, Inc. of Concord has completed the renovation of the Liberty Utilities (Granite State Electric) Corporation Electrical Division Emergency Call Center building in Lebanon.
Lauer Architects, PA of Goffstown provided design for the project.
Construction included the selective demolition of 6,500sf of existing office space that was renovated into a work area for the company’s Electrical Division’s Emergency Call Center and customer service employees. The building now has newly renovated offices, a break room, locker room, conference room, lineman work area, lobby, and several open office areas.
Construction also included the complete replacement of the roof while the space below remained occupied. The installation of additional roof joist reinforcement will provide added structural support to counter an anticipated heavier snow load due to lower heat loss thanks to upgraded insulation.
The building is now fully protected by a new fire alarm system and an impressive new 130kw emergency power generator. The exterior of the building was given new siding and a new weather barrier, and the building now has an ADA ramp at its public entrance.
The building remained occupied by the company’s employees throughout construction.
