Merrimack County Nursing Home Design
Merrimack County Nursing Home, Boscawen, NH | Merrimack County
This project involved a program report, design and construction administration of a new 296 bed, 237,000 square foot nursing home. MJ provided site/civil, fire protection, mechanical, electrical, communications, plumbing, and structural design services. The site work involved water distribution system improvements, which included a distribution loop around the entire new facility, with other upgrades to the existing Town Precinct and County systems. Wastewater system improvements included a sewer line extension, to connect the new facility with the existing collection system, and a new external grease trap, to collect grease from the kitchen facility. The site has completely new stormwater collection and treatment systems, which tie into the pre-existing discharge points. Stormwater treatment involves the use of grass-lined treatment swales and overland flow, as well as an extended detention treatment basin, to reduce the post-development flow. Other site improvements include enhancements to the existing access driveways and a loop road around the new facility and other site utility improvements to the electrical, telephone and CATV services.
