Project Description

Eckman Construction provided preconstruction and construction management services for Ruth Lewin Griffin Place, The Portsmouth Housing Authority’s new affordable housing complex located in the Historic District of downtown Portsmouth.

The 56,400 sf project features 64-units of affordable housing and an underground parking garage.

Eckman preserved a historic building located on-site as demolition occurred around its exterior and incorporated the structure into a green space that will act as a hub for the community.

Architectural design provided by CJ Architects.
