North Branch Construction, Inc. of Concord has begun construction of a facility on Broken Bridge Road in Concord to serve as a Training Center for Liberty Utilities. The new 6,000 square foot, two-story masonry and steel building will contain two classrooms with SMART Board technology. The open training bay will include telephone poles for linesmen training and will also have several pieces of mock equipment that Liberty Utility employees will train with including transformers, gas ranges, air compressors, boilers, steam systems, pallor heaters, switching modules, and power panels. The center will also have an area designated for gas leak detection training. This building is the first of its kind for Liberty Utilities, with all training consolidated into one location.
This is the second project North Branch will perform for Liberty Utilities – the firm is currently working on the renovation of the Liberty Utilities Corporation building in Lebanon. CMK Architects of Manchester is providing design for the Training Center, which will be completed in May 2015.
