GREEN EGGS: Hillsborough County Superior Court North Tour Recap

Friday, May 10, 2019 10:53 AM | Douglas Shilo (Administrator)

On Friday, April 5th, our chapter had the unique opportunity to tour the inner workings of the LEED Silver-certified Hillsborough County Superior Court North. John Harper, from Lavallee Brensinger Architects, led the tour. Sarah Lineberry and Steven Lorentzen, from the State of NH, lended us their client perspective.

Reuse was theme of the day. The entire project takes the best of the old, while updating for contemporary standards.

A revitalized entrance conveys transparency while maintaining secure sight lines for the public areas. The existing cladding, a beautiful granite, was repurposed as a paving material for a new landscape design.


The group learns about how to fit all the complex mechanical equipment necessary to run a modern courthouse into an old courthouse. It is not an easy task!


 The group learns about the State of New Hampshire's commitment to the arts, and how this resulted in beautiful hanging installations for the public areas.
