Hooksett, NH – TFMoran of Bedford provided survey, permitting, civil/site engineering, and landscape architecture for the new four-story dormitory at Southern New Hampshire University, located on East Side Drive in Hooksett.
The 103,440sf building contains apartment-style dormitories made up of single and double bedrooms; in total there are 300 beds. Included are many amenities not typical to a college dorm, such as a full kitchen, living room, and a separate shower off from the bathroom.
Located on the first floor of the building will also be a fitness center, game room, and a common Main Street.
The project architects are Mackey Mitchell of St. Louis, Mo., and Lavallee Brensinger of Manchester, N.H., and the general contractor is Whiting Turner of Framingham, Mass.
The exterior of the structure is a new design for SNHU, made up of natural stone and metal panels. A ribbon-cutting event is planned for early September, after students get settled into their new home.
