Health and Wellness Building Reorganization

Durham, New Hampshire

Health & Wellness offers medical care and wellness education services to UNH students, faculty, and staff. Harriman provided design services for the renovations of relocating the waiting room, creating large two large offices spaces for nine physicians and their medical assistants, along with adding four new exam rooms to allow of a total of eighteen. The design allows for the waiting room to be adjacent to the check-in/out and provides a collaborative approach to the medical practice where the physicians and medical assistants work within the same space rather than isolated within individual offices.
General renovation included reorganization of spaces, upgraded mechanical systems, new ceilings and lighting, casework, new finishes in renovated spaces.
The project utilized Construction Management delivery method. The construction documents were completed well in advance of the on-site presence to permit sub-contractor and material procurement. During the winter break construction time frame, Harriman worked with the construction team to be responsive to site conditions and avoid project delay for the 26-day construction period.
