(Hooksett, NH) The New Hampshire Army National Guard (NHARNG) Field Maintenance Shop in Hooksett, NH has recently achieved Silver Level LEED Certification. North Branch Construction of Concord, NH constructed the 27,200-square-foot facility to achieve Silver Level LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Twenty-three categories of LEED credits were utilized throughout construction to realize the Silver Level LEED certification. For example, over 11,000 cubic yards of ledge were blasted on the project and 100% of the material was processed and recycled for use onsite. The building is powered by a renewable energy source in the form of a photo-voltaic solar panel system. Additional LEED credits were realized through the use of regional materials; recycled steel; water-efficient landscaping and charging stations for electric cars.
The field maintenance building, located along Route 3 in Hooksett, NH, includes a six-bay garage with overhead crane maintenance capabilities, a drive-through wash bay, a tool storage room, offices, classrooms, and gym and shower facilities.
The architect for this project was Smith Alvarez Sienkiewycz Architects located in Burlington, VT.
