Dalianis Veteran HousingNorth Branch Construction was awarded the Construction Management contract to rehabilitate property located at 59 Factory Street in Nashua for Veterans Housing for Harbor Homes of Nashua. The five-story former Avery Furniture store in downtown Nashua was converted into 30,000 square feet of transitional housing.
North Branch Construction’s scope of work included a total interior gut demolition and reconstruction with all new electric, mechanical, and sprinkler systems, a new elevator, stair wells, and 40 residential units, plus office space and associated common areas.
This was North Branch Construction’s second veterans’ transitional housing project for Harbor Homes. The firm previously built the assigned veterans’ housing known as Buckingham Place on Spring Street in Nashua, which was dedicated in honor and memory of Byron “Bucky” Buckingham, a World War II veteran and long time resident of Nashua. Buckingham Place was the first assigned veterans’ housing facility in the state of New Hampshire. Harbor Homes, Inc. is a private, non-profit agency, which provides residential and support services focused on the needs of persons living with mental illness and disabilities. George Hickey of Sanbornton provided the architectural design and funding for this project.
