PROJECT DESCRIPTION:This new, seven-story, medical office building was constructed on the main campus of Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The building was constructed on speculation that several private clients would occupy the building once it was constructed. Prior to construction, Affiliated Laboratories and Dahl/Chase Pathology were the only planned tenants at that time. Several years later, the building is now fully utilized with an array of tenants that serve the healthcare needs of Eastern Maine Healthcare.

While employed as Firm Associate and Senior Structural Engineer at another firm, this was Ronald W. Rideout’s, PE, first true design-build project. The Principal in charge of the project presented a very conceptual building rendering from which the structural design started. With the basic windows and doors located, means for heating and cooling resolved, along with Life Safety issues addressed, the structural design team took the lead on the project. Foundation/site, steel framing, shell, and then MEP were provided to allow for Sargent Corporation to competitively bid to subcontractors as the project was under construction.
