After nine months of renovation, the City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services (DPHCS) is moving back to 18 Mulberry Street in Nashua on June 21, 2021.
It has been a long time coming, but the needed renovations to the building have been completed. The major renovations included an elevator, a new roof, and a new HVAC system to make the building more energy efficient. In addition, new windows were installed and ADA compliant restrooms are now located on all levels. The entire interior has had a complete makeover which will enhance client access and improve service delivery. On the exterior, landscaping and signage are important features accenting the building located at the corner of Mulberry and Elm Street. Our main entrance will now be located on the Elm Street side of the building. The Nashua DPHCS thanks The Architects, Martini Northern, and all of the contractors for the work that has been completed.
Nashua DPHCS Staff are looking forward to occupying the new space. To allow for a successful transition, a company-wide move will take place from Tuesday, June 15 to Friday, June 18. During this time, our temporary location at 142 Main Street will be closed to the public and all staff will be working remotely. Staff will retain access to telephone and email services, and the Nashua COVID-19 Hotline will be staffed. Nashua DPHCS Staff will return to 18 Mulberry Street on Monday, June 21.
