MANCHESTER — Preparation for the renovation of space once occupied by Marcus Communications continues. Currently the construction crew is working on cutting through concrete and digging trenches to reroute the septic drainage system.

The new space is to be occupied primarily by operational and business functions of the Ambulance Service of Manchester as well, to a lesser degree, by those of Metro Wheelchair and some business functions of Aetna Ambulance Service.

The current plan is to have the main entrance be on the south side of the building with a main hallway through the center. The renovated space will likely include additional training and simulation areas, a relocated locker area, new offices, a medical supply staging area, and two new restrooms. The plans remain fluid. Trenches for septic drainage and rough-outs for the new bathrooms can be seen here:
