Fulcrum Associates in Amherst recently completed the construction of Dover Emergency Room, the newest Portsmouth Regional Hospital facility located on the Seacoast. Fulcrum Associates began construction in September 2018 and the project was completed in April. Open to the public on April 24, Dover Emergency Room is fully operational and serving patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
“Dover is one of the fastest growing communities in New Hampshire and Dover Emergency Room was constructed with the needs of the community in mind,” says Jeff Luter, president of Fulcrum. “We are honored that Portsmouth Regional Hospital selected us to turn their vision into a reality, creating an opportunity for high-quality care and critical patient access to more than 30,000 Dover area residents and professionals.”
At 10,000 square feet, the Dover Emergency Room provides 11 treatment rooms, including bays for trauma care, behavioral health, and pediatric care. The new facility is positioned to treat patients with serious illnesses or injuries through major medical trauma.
The building was constructed as a concrete masonry unit block with a structural steel frame. Light gauge metal framing with drywall was used for the interior and vinyl composition tile was used throughout the majority of the building for flooring.
Fulcrum Associates was joined by a team of subcontractors, including Novel Iron Works, Inc., Metro Walls, Inc., Exterior Designs, Inc., Eastern Services Electrical Contractors, LLC., Al Terry Plumbing & Heating, Inc., Tri-State Sprinkler Corp., White Diamond Painting, LLC. and Severino Trucking Co., Inc.
