Lewiston, ME – Lewiston High School celebrated its third week back to school by holding a groundbreaking ceremony for the addition and renovation of the school. When originally designed in 1970, the arts wing was not included in the project to save time and money.
Lavalle Bresinger Architects designed a 33,000sf addition and a 10,000sf renovation that includes a new arts wing for the school and renovation to the main entrance and front office. The arts wing will include new music, band, and art classrooms.
Ledgewood Construction of South Portland will manage the construction of the project which is expected to take approximately 13 months to complete.
Participating in the groundbreaking ceremony were Mark Cayor, mayor of Lewiston; Denis D’Auteuil, city administrator; Jake Langlais, superintendent; Luke Jensen, city councilor; Bruce Damon and Francis Gagnon, expansion co-chairs; Jay Dufour, assistant principal; Josh Breau, facilities director; Jay Doherty and Lance Whitehead, Lavallee Brensinger Architects; Pete Pelletier, Ledgewood Construction; and Jody Dube, Lewiston art teacher.
