Sebago Technics was engaged to provide landscape architecture, civil engineering, and permitting for this comprehensive facilities construction project at the Bramhall Campus.
The project included a four-story, state-of-the-art obstetrics and newborn center, a new helicopter landing pad, a new 512-car parking garage, a new central utility plant, and reconfiguration of the main entrances to the hospitals and lobbies. The new campus encompasses three city blocks and included the vacation and re-alignment of two city streets in Portland’s West End Neighborhood.
Sebago Technics led the effort for the Phase I Expansion project. Grade changes exceeding 80 vertical feet, complicated existing and proposed utility infrastructure and significant circulation patterns challenged and invigorated the design team. Completed in the fall of 2009, a new main entrance graces the arrival to Bramhall, creates a new pocket park dedicated to the City of Portland, and resolves a long – standing parking shortage at Maine Medical Center.
Permits to construct the project were obtained from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, the Federal Aviation Administration and the City of Portland. Led by Paul Gray at Maine Medical Center, the City review, public input and participation process was extensive, and we were pleased to support that process with presentation graphics and verbal testimony.
