March 20, 2020 - Construction Design & Engineering

Portland, ME Colliers Project Leaders | USA is delivering comprehensive project management and owner’s representative services on extensive expansions to Maine Medical Center. The multi-phased project includes a new, 270,000 s/f inpatient tower, a new patient and visitor parking garage providing 225 additional spots, a three-story expansion to the East Tower and a 110,000 s/f medical office building for neuroscience, vascular surgery and ENT, as well as a 2,450-car parking garage for staff and visitors. Delivered in four phases, the $536 million project is the largest expansion in Maine Medical Center’s history. The Colliers team is led by Dominic Gagnon, senior vice president, Adam Troidl, vice president, and Ashley Roan, project coordinator.

Colliers is working closely with Perkins + Will, Turner Construction, Thornton Tomasetti, Consigli Construction and SMRT to deliver the expansion.

The first phase involved a three-story overbuild on the current eight-story patient & visitor parking garage providing 225 additional parking spaces, as well as an additional three-story overbuild on the current East Tower, which created two-stories for 64 inpatient oncology beds and two rooftop helipads. The second phase of construction focuses on the new, state-of-the-art staff parking garage. This nine-level garage is the largest north of the Boston metro area and provides visitors and staff with 2,450 new parking spaces and a technologically empowered system to measure vacancies.

The third phase of construction, targeted for completion in 2023, involves the creation of a new 270,000 s/f inpatient tower with 96 beds and 19 procedure rooms, as well as a universal room concept to achieve flexibility and reduce the possibility of future renovations. Finally, the independent phase involves the construction of a new, 110,000 s/f medical office building on the medical center’s Scarborough Campus. This new center will house neuroscience, vascular surgery and ENT practices.

“As the physician leader on our building project, I have found the project support, knowledge base and management that Colliers provides to be invaluable,” said Michael Baumann, MD, FACEP, chair, department of emergency ,medicine, MaineHealth. “They are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the project and provide overall management of the building with ease and elegance.”

“Trust is the buzz word in healthcare in 2020, and we had absolute trust in the work being done by Colliers,” said Joel Botler, MD, chief medical officer, MaineHealth. “Like Colliers, one of our core values is ownership and they define that value.”

“Colliers is honored to deliver an innovative facility to meet the most urgent healthcare needs of the future,” said Gagnon. “This new expansion will help empower Maine Medical Center to champion patient care and research for decades to come.”
