After being postponed for a few weeks, due to heavy rains, the ceremonial ground breaking event for the new Franklin Savings Bank in Goffstown, NH took place on a sunny Friday, October 5, 2018. More than a dozen key people involved in the project lined up with shiny new shovels, ready to dig in for the official ground breaking photo. Included in the photo were FSB’s president and several from the FSB leadership team, town officials, and representatives from Paramount Partners, Sullivan Construction and TFMoran.
Construction has all ready begun for the new 2,161 square foot branch office located on Mast Road in the Pinardville area, and is expected to be complete in February 2019. The bank will be part of Abingdon Square, a mixed-use development designed by TFMoran that currently includes a Rite Aid pharmacy and workforce housing. The bank will feature two drive-up lanes, a smart ATM and technology bar. This will be the eighth full-service location, and the third office in southern New Hampshire.
The FSB project team includes Paramount Partners of Quincy, MA, DeStefano Architects of Portsmouth, Sullivan Construction of Bedford, NH and TFMoran. TFMoran provided land surveying, civil engineering, structural engineering, traffic engineering, permitting and landscape architecture services for the project. This is the second bank project for this team, the first was the FSB in Merrimack, NH completed in 2017.
