Franklin Pierce Law Center

Franklin Pierce Law Center

Concord, NH

The University of New Hampshire engaged Harvey to manage 7,000 square feet of renovations to the existing Franklin Pierce Law Center, and to construct a new 15,000 square foot addition. After completing the planning and cost estimating phase Harvey assisted with the development of a multi-phased design strategy to expand, upgrade, and unify the school’s facilities.  The addition included a state-of-the-art 150-seat lecture hall, cafeteria and student lounge, meeting rooms, conference rooms, reception areas, and smaller scale teaching spaces.  Renovations created a new circulation spine on three levels. The circulation paths converge on an internal “town square” providing orientation and a sense of place for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. All construction was completed as scheduled while the building was fully occupied.
