Farley White interests has broken ground on 90 Arboretum Drive, a 72,000-square-foot office building in Newington, N.H. The building was designed by SGA Architects, and is the first building in New Hampshire to be built using Mass Timber construction.
Mass Timber construction refers to a load-bearing system where wood is used as the primary structure, as opposed to concrete and steel. According to Nordic Structures, the construction manufacturer for the project, wood production emits 30% less carbon dioxide than concrete or steel. Additionally, the building will utilize an energy recovery makeup air unit which, depending upon the season, recovers the heat or coolness of the exhaust air and applies it to the fresh air makeup.
“We’re excited to continue our role in developing, owning and managing exceptional office space in New Hampshire and specifically in the Seacoast market at Pease International Tradeport,” said John Power, principal at Farley White Interests. “Bringing the first Mass Timber Class A office building to New Hampshire is a step in the right direction, and provides new benefits to what is already an attractive office location.”
