Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

The remote site location, severe winter conditions, and surrounding wetlands were some of the challenges faced on this project. The entrance road crossed approximately 1,000 feet of wetlands. The site was monitored every two weeks by a third-party erosion control inspector required by the State of Maine and contracted by Nestle Waters North America. Along with finish grading and landscaping, the building was weather tight and painted one week before the first snow storm. The building was constructed by concrete tilt-up walls. Cianbro managed 50 trade partners with a total workforce of 175 people. The project is LEED Gold certified.
