On September 21, 2015 the Southern New Hampshire University campus community celebrated the grand opening of the new Quad with a ribbon cutting ceremony lead by President Paul LeBlanc. Students enjoyed the new walkways, benches and the vibrant green space, where a parking lot once occupied. The new addition of a black metal archway at the top of the stairs, displays the University’s iconic leaf symbol which is also engraved in a granite circle at the foot of the stairs.
TFMoran worked with the University in providing conceptual designs, landscape architecture, land surveying, permitting and civil engineering services to convert the old parking lot into a new green space. The Quad is located in the center of the campus, across from the new Learning Commons and Library, and Dining Hall, where there is a pedestrian light for safe crossing on North River Road. Leighton A. White, Inc. was the site work contractor.
