The architect for the residential complex is Ayers Saint Gross of Baltimore, Maryland, and the construction manager is Landry/French Construction Co., of Scarborough. Sebago Technics is providing civil engineering and permitting services for the project.
Sebago Technics worked closely with Ayers Saint Gross to create a site that integrates with the surrounding urban area. Streetscape, on-street parking, bus staging and service entries were carefully considered creating a new residential complex that will set the tone for the surrounding renovations to the Main Street area. Students will appreciate the intuitive site design, the careful detailing of paving and amenity placement and the connection with the surrounding urban area. As part of the scope Sebago led the permitting effort locally, working with the City Planning and Engineering Staff to secure approvals leading to construction and building permits.
The first floor will house retail uses and a special, glassed-in forum room that may be used by City officials, nonprofit organizations, Colby and other entities who want to hold meetings there, while 2/3 floors will be dedicated to student and faculty housing.
