Celebrating the renovation of historic Concord Theatre – now the Bank of New Hampshire Stage

A celebration was held on Saturday, July 13th for the completion of the newly renovated historic Concord Theatre- now the Bank of New Hampshire Stage. TFMoran’s Sr. Project Manager, Nick Golon, PE and his family attended the picnic dinner, and 90’s theme dance party courtesy of Duprey Hospitality, to celebrate the stage’s completion. The Bank of New Hampshire Stage is located on South Main Street in Concord, and is now owned by The Capitol Center for the Arts, located just down the road.

TFMoran structural and civil engineers worked closely with Dennis Mires P.A. The Architects and Milestone Engineering and Construction to provide civil and structural engineering services for the project.

Originally a bakery started in the mid-1800’s, The Concord Theatre building was converted to a movie theatre which ran from the 1930s to the mid 1990’s. The property also housed various small businesses more recently. However, the main movie theatre has been vacant for many years. The renovation project will create a flexible event venue for the Capitol Center for the Arts and a box office.

The existing building was in need of repair and rehabilitation. Consequently, the project includes significant structural upgrades and repairs to the building framing. Outdated floor, roof and wall framing will be reinforced or replaced. Additionally, an interior balcony and new cantilevered marquee will be added.

A small addition was added on the building’s south side for a new stair and elevator. The attractive addition was built in conjunction with functional and aesthetic improvements to the building’s site. New pavement, plantings, seating and a loading area were part of the project.
