At this year's Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) Annual Spring Conference held on May 22nd, AlliedCook's Emery School project was recognized as "noteworthy and significant." AlliedCook served as construction manager on the project.
Each year, MEREDA recognizes the most noteworthy and significant Maine commercial development projects from the previous year, all of which embody MEREDA's belief in responsible development. The 27,000 s/f historic 1912 Emery School, which once served as a neighborhood elementary school in Biddeford, was transformed into affordable, senior housing units for Avesta Housing of Portland.
"AlliedCook is proud to have been part of the preservation of this important community landmark, and we're especially pleased to have the project recognized by MEREDA," said president Matt Cook.
Emery School was one of six projects to be recognized by MEREDA.
