The original Hillsborough County Superior Court North building in Manchester, New Hampshire had outlived its usefulness. It needed a gut renovation, an asbestos abatement — and a facelift of sorts. The facility at 300 Chestnut Street reopened in October 2011 following an extensive 15-month gut renovation and reconstruction. The $15.4 million project resulted in a “modern, dignified building” that came in almost $3 million under budget, government officials wrote in a news release at the time.
The KarrierPanel barrier wall helped create a high-performance envelope that combined impressive R-values with low thermal bridging and superior airtightness. Use of the KarrierPanel system played a key part in this stylish renovation, which won an AIA award for Excellence in Architecture.
