Completed on time and budget as General Contractor.
This 15,000 square-foot addition to the elementary school consisted of a two-story, ten-classroom wing.

DARTMOUTH COLLEGE: LIFE SCIENCES BUILDING ~ (ENABLING WORK)
The Enabling Project for Dartmouth College’s planned Life Sciences building required extensive site work extending across much of the high traffic area on campus. Work included 750 linear feet of cast-in-place steam trench, direct burial chilled water pipe, 800 linear feet of steam and chilled water piping and three new cast-in-place manhole structures for valving. The electrical and communication duct-bank system was also extended.
UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE ~ COLE AND BARTON HALLS Renovation
This significant renovation consisted of removing the entire existing exterior masonry and EIFS facade, replacing it with a new brick and metal panel system. Structural portions of the building’s exterior were reworked to accommodate the architect’s design. The connecting pedestrian bridge was removed and a new elevator was installed.
“Martini Northern went the extra mile to complete this very difficult project in a thoughtful and organized fashion and without significant inconvenience to the building occupants.”.
– Richard A. Rouleau, PE ~ UNH, Facility Project Manager
UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE ~ HEWITT HALL
This existing HVAC system for the 51,000 s/f home of the College of Health and Human Services was updated while the building remained fully operational requiring careful coordination with the school to minimize any disruption to students and faculty.
UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE ~ MURKLAND HALL
Martini Northern completed an elaborate restoration and renovation of this four-story, Liberal Arts building. The work included restoration of the original 234-seat Richards Auditorium into a state-of-the-art teaching theatre and multi-media arts center. The Dean of Student’s suite of offices and the two-level lobby were also restored featuring terrazzo flooring, brass railings and ornamental trim. The remainder of the building was completely renovated and updated. The project team provided six months of preconstruction services. The construction schedule was undertaken as soon as the preconstruction effort commenced. The 14-month project was completed on time per the original schedule in order to accommodate students returning for the fall semester.
- Preconstruction services
- Extensive campus utility work over summer and fall
- Maintained student walkways while installing utilities below
- Installation of requisite shoring
- Extensive site utilities work connecting to campus utilities in steam tunnels
As the project progressed, careful tracking of the budget indicated that the project would be delivered under budget. The renovation necessitated extensive MEP upgrades and utility-grade improvements to campus systems. As a result, money was returned to the client early in the process enabling the client to add scope back into the program that had originally been omitted due to budget constraints.
“Martini Northern maintains a solid understanding of the project budget, and they are sensitive to offering excellent solutions and construction options, which are cost effective and will enhance the overall project quality.”– Brenda H. Whitmore, Construction Manager – University of New Hampshire

All work was accomplished while the building remained fully operational, requiring stringent coordination efforts on the part of the contractor to ensure that building services were maintained for students and faculty and that sensitive musical instruments were protected throughout the course of construction.
