TFMoran is honored to be a part of the award-winning project team for the renovation and rehabilitation of the historic Concord Theatre, now known as Bank of NH Stage. The theatre, owned by the Capitol Center for the Arts, was a recent recipient of the Plan NH 2020 Merit Award of Excellence. The project team included the developer The Duprey Companies; construction manager Milestone Engineering and Construction; and architect Dennis Mires, PA The Architects. TFMoran provided both civil and structural engineering services for the preservation of the 140-year-old building located on South Main Street.
Plan NH describes the award-winning Bank of NH Stage:
“In spite of the challenges of working with such an old building to get it to where they wanted, today the venue is eclectic and flexible. It can easily be walked or biked to from within the downtown, and it is on a bus route. In addition, its flexible space means that a younger generation can stand and move with its music – or, other performances can be done in a more intimate setting. It is a welcome addition to an already-vibrant downtown.”
Each year, Plan NH holds its annual Merit Award Program to honor exemplary built environment projects that have a positive impact on the community. All nominations are reviewed by a jury of engineers, planners, architects, and others. The jury selects projects that demonstrate social responsibility, Smart Growth principals, and creative approaches to collaboration and cooperation. This year, due to covid-19 pandemic, the presentation was held virtually.
Congratulations to the other 2020 recipients of the Plan NH Merit Award of Excellence: MoCo Arts (Keene); 23 Ammonoosuc (Littleton); and Madbury Public Library
