Fulcrum Associates completes work


AMHERST – Fulcrum Associates, a leading construction management firm in southern New Hampshire, recently completed the construction of a 2,160-square-foot addition.

The addition consists of 14 exam rooms and provider offices for Southern New Hampshire Health System’s Merrimack Medical Center. The expansion supports the improvement of patients’ health through expanded capacity to provide innovative programs and preventive health resources.

The center provides family medicine, physical therapy, dermatology, immediate care, pediatrics, sports medicine, lab and radiology services.

“Southern New Hampshire Health System is committed to improving, maintaining and preserving the overall health and well-being of individuals in the Greater Nashua area through our wealth of resources, including the physical spaces we treat our patients in,” Vice President of Facilities and Emergency Management Scott Cote said. “We have worked with Fulcrum for the past 10 years on countless projects at our various locations in the region, and their team continues to understand our values and vision by delivering high-quality spaces that are safe and welcoming for our patients and staff.”

The addition located on the northern end of the existing structure was constructed with exterior wood framing, interior metal stud framing and attic wood trusses. The addition was made weather-tight using a revolutionary ZIP System, which integrates moisture and air protection in one streamlined process.

“Southern New Hampshire Health delivers high-quality care to the community, and has a great deal of respect for their patients and staff,” Fulcrum President Jeff Luter said. “As a fellow southern New Hampshire business that shares the same respect for this community, we’re proud to have a role in expanding the medical center’s capacity to deliver the level of care Merrimack and the surrounding areas deserve.”
