The City of South Portland currently operates its public services department from an antiquated and inefficient facility. Sebago Technics was retained in 2010 to begin the feasibility planning and site selection process to develop a new combined Municipal Public Works Facility, Solid Waste Transfer Facility, Public Bus Transportation, and Parks and Recreation Facility.
The planning, site selection and costing of a facility were completed in early 2014 with a referendum being approved by the community for a total project cost of $15.2 million. During 2014 and into 2015, Sebago Technics, Inc. completed the site and civil design work including local, state and federal permitting. Due to the size of the project and the selected location at the City’s Highland Avenue property, a phased approach was taken beginning with the construction of a new solid waste transfer facility. This new facility was completed in the late fall of 2015 with the bidding of the full facility taking place in the winter of 2016 and construction completion in the summer of 2017.
Sebago Technics, Inc., under contract with the City of South Portland, is providing project management, performed land surveying, natural resources assistance, civil engineering services, landscape architecture, permitting and construction administration for the entire project. At its completion, the project will include a new solid waste transfer station, new sand and salt storage building, City fueling facility, 71,000 square feet of new building construction, public utilities, roadway and site infrastructure.
