Dartmouth College dorm reconstructed after fire
Written by NH1 News on .
HANOVER — North Branch Construction of Concord has completed the gut renovation of the four-story Morton Hall on the campus of Dartmouth College, and students have begun moving in. Morton Hall is one of four dormitories that make up the East Wheelock cluster on campus.
A four-alarm fire in October 2016 left the domitory uninhabitable. North Branch Construction was hired to perform the extensive reconstruction of the building.
The college took the opportunity to incorporate a new layout into the dormitory, increasing the number of beds from 67 to 84, creating two new central common areas on each floor, and installing an elevator.
Harriman Associates of Portland, Maine, provided design for the project.
