Chapman Construction/Design Completes New HQ for Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire
Boston, MA-based Chapman Construction/Design, a construction management firm specializing in high-performance building, has completed the construction of a new two-story 7,744-square-foot wood-frame building located in Epping, NH that will serve as the headquarters for the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire.
The structure at 247 North River Road houses the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire’s Nan and George Mathey Center for People and Nature at Burley Farm. It contains offices and space to facilitate the organization’s nature-based programming.
The fossil fuel free building was constructed using sustainable practices and operates at the highest building performance standards, including a high-performance building enclosure with continuous air vapor barrier and insulation to create a super-tight and well insulated building will reduce energy loads. Wood framing was used to reduce embodied carbon footprint and locally sourced thermally modified wood was selected for its longevity.
Chapman Construction/Design worked alongside the New Hampshire Natural Heritage Bureau to develop a plan for protecting the surrounding site and environment.
