(Hanover, NH) North Branch Construction of Concord has recently begun the renovation of the Blunt Alumni Center on the Dartmouth College campus. This renovation will take place on all four floors of the building while the facility remains occupied throughout construction. The Blunt Alumni Center is a mixed-use building that provides both academic and administrative space to the college. Existing offices, breakrooms, restrooms, and a kitchen will all receive renovations and a canopy will be added at the Garden level exit to cover the existing exterior exit stairs. Renovations include a air conditioning system, new lighting and power distribution, new windows, and new finishes. This project will also reconfigure the existing layout of the building to provide four new seminar rooms, a new classroom, and a new restroom.
Studio Nexus Architects & Planners are providing architectural design for the project, which is expected to be complete by the end of the summer. North Branch Construction has completed multiple projects on the Dartmouth College campus, most recently finishing the hyper-fast-track, total gut renovation and reconstruction of the four-story Morton Hall dormitory following a four-alarm fire that took place in late 2016 leaving the facility uninhabitable.
