Project Overview

Category: Medical
Location: Nashua, NH
General Contractor: Galaxy Glass and Aluminum
Architect: Morriss Switzer


Our CIRCA™ Stainless Steel Railing System provides a simple yet timeless look. The system consists of round tubular posts and the railing in-fill between the posts is mounted via fixed point holders.

VIVA’s tempered glass infills provide optimal line of sight as well as an understated elegance. Our glass infills range from a minimum of 3/8″ PVB or SGP laminated glass. Colored, patterned and frosted glass are additional options based on design intent and need.


Located in Nashua, New Hampshire, the building is one of many medical centers run by Dartmouth-Hitchcock. They hold several unique aspects like walking paths on multiple levels, lodging assistance, and even a hair salon. It’s not just a place to stay. It is a place for enrichment and to relax which leads to faster healing and happier patients. Galaxy Glass & Morriss Switzer chose VIVA Railings to upgrade the new building with our CIRCA line.


Galaxy Glass and Aluminum had a small start in a garage in Massachusetts. After the market crash, a group of key leaders decided to start up what you know today as GGA. With determination and ability, they have grown into a fully staffed service center which houses fabrication machines and a fully stocked warehouse. Building everything from aluminum paneling to fire products, GGA offers a huge variety of products to suit your needs.

Morriss Switzer is exclusive to health and medical projects. With over 2,000 projects in their portfolio, the focus remains with the patients and families. Since opening in 1989, Morriss Switzer has discovered that the environment which a patient stays can vastly impact the way one heals. Not only do patients, but doctors and the entire system runs much more smoothly when an environment is well designed.
