 Groundbreaking Ceremony Kicks Off Construction of Two New Welcome Centers in Hooksett




The State of New Hampshire and The Common Man family broke ground on redeveloping the two welcome centers on Interstate 93 north and south in Hooksett, NH on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013.  Read the press release from the groundbreaking event here.

New Hampshire’s Common Man Family is excited to bring a new approach to the design and construction of two New Hampshire-themed service areas on Interstate 93 north and south in Hooksett, NH. The new service areas, to be named Common Man Hooksett, will be designed by Samyn-D’Elia Architects, P.A. located in Ashland, NH and built by Conneston Construction Inc. located in Gilford, NH.

The new service areas will be productive for the State, allow the New Hampshire perspective to shine through and invite visitors to see New Hampshire as an innovative and exciting state — a place where opportunity abounds and citizens take pride in their state’s history, industry and future. Where it is clear to all that “New Hampshire is different, New Hampshire is better, New Hampshire is Live Free or Die.”

North and Southbound Service Areas will feature:

Mill Building Architectural Style

3,000 sq. ft. Interactive Visitor Center

16,000 sq. ft. Uncommon Food Court

3,000 sq. ft., 24-Hour Country Store

More than 300 Parking Spaces

16 Irving Oil Fueling Stations

NH Bank

16,000 sq. ft. NH Uncommon Food Court featuring a 1950s Hi-way Diner, Italian Restaurant, Country Deli/Sandwich Shop and Village Bakery/Coffee Shop

Energy Efficient and Sustainable Features that Exceed the Green Building Standard
