Design, Engineering, and Construction
The design and engineering firm AECm in Newmarket, NH prepared conceptual designs for the new senior center. In 2017 and 2018, age-friendly design work also included support from Manypenny Murphy Architecture in Portsmouth and has been elevated to include technical specifications and details aimed to make the Portsmouth Senior Activity Center a premier community resource for mature adults. Martini Northern in Portsmouth was the general contractor for the project, and the Portsmouth Department of Public Works provided essential project oversight over the 10 month construction period. The Department of Community Development provided CDBG funds for AECm's construction administration costs.
