Wells, Maine – Landry/French Construction recently participated in a formal groundbreaking ceremony for the new town of Wells public safety complex.
The architect is Lavallee Brensinger Architects.
Town officials, staff, and members of the community gathered to open the new 40,000sf combined police and fire station. Planning for the facility began in 2012.
Police Chief Jo-Ann Putnam, who had advocated for the new building for the past 15 years, spoke at the groundbreaking and thanked Town Manager Jonathan Carter, selectmen, and taxpayers. The new state-of-the-art facility will replace the outdated and cramped 1960s building that was constructed for use as a town hall.
Construction is slated to be completed end of 2019.
