New hotel and restaurant taking shape in Concord
TFMoran providing engineering services for Tru by Hilton and T-Bones restaurant
A new skyline at Exit 12 off Interstate 93 in Concord is taking shape as work nears completion for a new Tru by Hilton hotel.
TFMoran is working with Duprey Hospitality and Great NH Restaurants on the construction of the new hotel and the adjacent T-Bones Great American Eatery on transforming the former site of a Days Inn into a destination for tourists, business travelers and families for accommodations or a dining experience.
When completed, both hotel and restaurant are expected to be popular destinations because of their convenient location and excellent visibility from I-93.
The Tru by Hilton will be a four-story hotel with 85 guest rooms and public function space. Tru is described by Hilton as a “brand-new hotel experience that is vibrant, affordable and young-at-heart.”
The building features a 2,000-square-foot open-concept lobby with multiple areas for guests to work, eat and relax. The guest rooms feature a design that includes open closets, rolling desks and plenty of storage and power outlets.
TFMoran is providing civil and traffic engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture and construction administration services and is working with Opechee Construction Corp. to complete this project. It is the first Hilton property for Duprey Hospitality and the firm’s fifth hotel in Concord. The hotel is expected to turn on its “Vacancy” sign in the spring.
The T-Bones restaurant will be the largest stand-alone T-Bones location for Bedford-based Great NH Restaurants. The 9,240-square-foot restaurant that includes a 260-seat indoor dining room and 35-seat outdoor patio.
TFMoran is providing civil, traffic and structural engineering, land surveying landscape architecture and construction administration services for the project and is supporting the efforts of project architect Market Square Architects of Portsmouth and builder Fulcrum Associates of Amherst.
The restaurant is scheduled to open in the winter.
