Hillsborough Heritage Museum, Hillsborough NH
The Historical Society would like to be able to use the large function room on the second floor of the Museum, housed in the former firehouse. They also want to make it available to other groups and to offer it for Town use. In order to meet life safety and accessibility codes, a second stair and an elevator are required. I assisted the Hillsborough Historical Society with a preliminary review of the pertinent building, life safety, and accessibility codes, and generated several design options for locating either the stair or the elevator in the existing “hose tower”.
