Business notes for Feb. 11
NORTH BRANCH CONSTRUCTION of Concord has begun work on a basement fit-up at the George H. and Ella M. Rodgers Memorial Library in Hudson. North Branch completed construction of the 13,500-square-foot library in 2009 and was asked to return last summer to finish the basement for storage of archives. After the project came in over budget, North Branch and its subcontractors worked with the library’s board and leadership to identify alternate solutions that would provide both the archives and the library staff with a safe and comfortable environment while reducing the project cost by almost half. NORTH BRANCH has also been awarded the contract to raze the exist-
ing First Congregational
Church of Wolfeboro and rebuild. Construction will inc-
lude the demolition of about 3,800 square feet of existing facilities above the lower level Fellowship Hall and kitchen, and more than 6,500 square feet of new construction, including a sanctuary and offices. The project is scheduled to begin in April.
