Article Excerpt:

Portsmouth, NH – The final vacant lot along Lafayatte Road (US Route 1) in Portsmouth’s Office/Residential zoning district will soon be home to Atlantic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine’s new facility. MSC a division of TFMoran, Inc., recently received planning board approval for two new office buildings. Construction will soon be underway at 1900 Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, as the ground breaking is scheduled for April 2015.

Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, currently located at 150 Route 1 Bypass in Portsmouth, will be occupying the new office building closest to Lafayette Road. After considering an expansion to their existing location, Atlantic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine ultimately decided that a new facility would better fit their needs to continue providing quality services to their patients.

“The project required a lengthy and challenging permitting process, as details related to stormwater drainage and the complete build-out of a service road connecting local businesses were vital components of the project” explained John Lorden, PE, MSC’s Senior Project Manager. “Ultimately, stormwater drainage was allowed to connect to existing municipal storm drainage via a proposed service road. This connection of the service road located within the Lafayette West Industrial Park will provide additional access to local roads and nearby businesses. The complete build-out of the service road was part of a long-term plan envisioned since the property was subdivided in 1983, when an easement was established allowing access and use to all abutting parcels. The service road will improve access to all parcels along the service road, provide more direct access to Portsmouth Regional Hospital for doctors and patients, and also alleviate some traffic on the heavily traveled corridor,” continued Lorden.
