Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s new ambulatory surgery center “New England Center for Orthopaedic Surgery” is nearing completion at 1900 Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, NH. This is the second medical office building on the site, completing the two-phased project.
Phase Two required TFMoran’s seacoast division to work with the owners, project architect and City of Portsmouth to amend the original phased site plan that was approved in 2015. The original site plan designed by TFMoran included two medical office buildings with associated access, parking and site improvements. Phase One, a 2-story, 21,300 sf medical office building, was constructed by BBL Medical Facilities and opened in early 2016. Phase Two, a 2-story, 20,000sf medical office building to be built later, was planned for the back of the lot, near the entrance of the service road.
The amended site plan for Phase Two featured a single-story, 11,175 sf ambulatory surgical center which was approved by the City in July 2019. Construction started in the summer of 2020 and completion is expected this summer. The new state-of-the-art facility is affiliated with Portsmouth Regional Hospital and jointly owned with HCA Healthcare. The New England Center for Orthopaedic Surgery will feature three operating rooms specially designed for orthopedic procedures and will provide high-quality outpatient care.
The project team for both phases include the project architect Hereford Dooley Architects of Nashville, Tennessee; construction services provided by BBL Construction Services, LLC of Albany, New York; and TFMoran of Portsmouth, New Hampshire for providing civil/site design, permitting, land surveying. landscape architecture and construction administration services.
