Over the course of two summers, Structure Tone worked with Hollis Upper Elementary School and the Hollis Primary School to improve their energy efficiency measures and update their heating and electric systems. As a first measure of energy conservation, all the lighting in the schools was replaced with LED fixtures that use 75% less energy. The more drastic change in energy efficiency came when we replaced sections of the school’s existing roofs to install new solar panel systems. In total, over 300 panels were installed using the 100KW PVA system. Before starting the project, the buildings’ existing conditions were reviewed to ensure the program could be installed efficiently and be able to successfully produce power to the schools. Since the solar panel installations, the schools have received energy recovery credits with state agencies.
This opportunity arose when the town of Hudson, New Hampshire needed a new fire station. The 7,800sf, brand new, design build facility would help fill a gap in one end of town and would serve as a model station for future renovations.
Structure Tone worked with the Berni family to develop and construct a 6,545sf, two-story office building to accommodate an office environment. The building includes men and women’s bathrooms on each floor and an elevator to service the second floor. The team built out 3,100sf on the first floor and 3,345sf on the second floor. The building is a structural steel shell with metal stud framing, plywood, and Hardie Plank siding and trim for the exterior walls.
Structure Tone New Hampshire completed a two phase, interior and exterior renovation project for this technology company located in Amherst, NH.
