Wells, ME Landry/French Construction participated in a formal groundbreaking ceremony for the new Town of Wells public safety complex.
On June 19th, town officials, staff and members of the community gathered to celebrate the long-awaited facility. Planning for the new 40,000 s/f combined police and fire station 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The new facility will replace the outdated and cramped 1960’s building that was constructed for use as a town hall.
The architect is Lavallee Brensinger Architects. Construction is slated to be completed end of 2019.
