Yesterday marked a pivotal moment for the Downtown Mill District in Biddeford, Maine, with the grand opening of the Biddeford Parking Garage. The garage, which is the first private infrastructure financing project of its kind in Maine, is critical to supporting the area’s parking needs while alleviating existing downtown parking pressures.
The PC Construction team joined partners from the City of Biddeford, Desman Design Management, Sewall / Treadwell Franklin Infrastructure, and Amber Infrastructure for the ribbon cutting event. Within minutes of cutting the ribbon, vehicles began entering the 640-space garage.
The project broke ground in August 2020 and was complete just over a year later, more than a month ahead of schedule. This success story is due largely to the hard work and dedication of our trade partners, and our emphasis on Lean practices such as Phase Planning.
The five-story, 214,000-square-foot precast parking structure features gateless entry and exit, a contactless payment system, vehicle charging stations and a brick exterior to integrate with the surrounding historical mill buildings.
