Keene, NH – North Branch Construction of Concord has recently begun the renovation of a 104,000sf manufacturing facility located at 25 Production Avenue in Keene for the Monadnock Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).
The architect for the project is Catlin + Petrovick Architects located in Keene.
The project will convert space previously occupied by medical equipment supplier Smiths Medical into a manufacturing facility for pre-fabricated homebuilder Unity Homes, a subsidiary of Bensonwood Woodworking Company of Walpole.
Funding for the development of the facility is made possible in part by a $300,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) subgranted to the MEDC, who will lease the property to Unity Homes.
Originally founded in 1985 as the Keene Industrial Development Corporation (KIDC), the MEDC’s mission is “to lead the region in the enhancement of its industrial and business base to improve the standard of living, quality of life, and economic vitality of our communities”.
Construction is expected to be completed by late summer.
