NH Historical Society and The H.L. Turner Group Receive Preservation Award

Concord, NH – On May 10, the N.H. Preservation Alliance announced eleven awards for outstanding historic preservation projects.  The New Hampshire Historical Society received one of these coveted awards for work completed on the building in collaboration with The H.L. Turner Group.

According to N.H. Historical Society President, William Dunlap, “The New Hampshire Historical Society chose H.L. Turner to help us develop and evaluate possible approaches to modernizing the climate control systems in our historic National Register-listed building.  In addition to mechanical systems, the project also involved reconstructing skylight systems covering 40% of our roof area, which were highly inefficient.  Following the preliminary planning process, H.L. Turner designed and engineered the ultimate systems to meet these challenges.

This was a complex project due to the historic nature of the building.  H.L. Turner handled the project with sensitivity, worked extremely well with other vendor team members, and delivered a design that worked flawlessly.”

The N.H. Preservation Alliance awards recognize individuals, organizations, and businesses in the categories of restoration and stewardship, rehabilitation, compatible new construction, public policy, and educational and planning initiatives across the state.

The H.L. Turner Group Hosts Blood Drive

Concord, NH – The H.L. Turner Group will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Tuesday, April 26 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at their offices at 27 Locke Road in Concord.

 “The H.L. Turner Group is committed to strengthening our community and helping meet hospital and patient needs through blood donations,” said Jennifer Cusato, Marketing and Business Development Manager. “This blood drive is our way of giving staff, colleagues and neighbors an opportunity to help save lives.”

 

 Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross.

 

 “We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.”

 

 To schedule an appointment, go to www.redcross.org.  Walk-ins are welcome or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) for availability.

TTG Environmental Consultants, LLC (TEC) - The White Rock Cooperative Estates in Tilton, NH is a non-profit, cooperatively owned, 28-unit manufactured housing park constructed in the 1960s. Presently, wastewater is disposed of in a series of leach fields constructed between the units and potable water is distributed through a series of 2-inch diameter plastic pipes that runbetween, and in some cases under, the units. Through a study performed by TEC, it was determined that the wastewater and water supply infrastructure should be replaced. The leaching systems will be abandoned and new sewers and a pumping station installed to connect into the recently constructed municipal sewer on Route 3. The existing water lines will also be abandoned and new ductile iron piping installed in the roadway.
