Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

The facility was constructed on a tight work site. The building consumed 7.8 acres of the 8-acre site (95 percent of the property), requiring exact planning and execution of activities. The hotel was the first platform construction used in Maine where the walls and partitions were prefabricated off-site and trucked to the site for erection by crane, which sped up the process and decongested the work area. Cianbro successfully maintained an accelerated schedule while meeting the guaranteed maximum price (GMP) and effectively incorporating all unanticipated challenges and design evolutions.
