Maine’s biggest city will see it’s largest healthcare facility transformed by the nearly $500-million Maine Medical Center Bramhall Campus Replacement & Modernization Project. Adam is the Owner’s Project Manager (OPM) through Colliers International, tasked with management and oversight of the design, construction, and opening of the multi-phase project over a five year period. This project will expand Maine Medical Center’s capacity and modernize much of its patient care facilities with every aspect designed around the needs of patients.
The project will optimize current bed capacity at the state’s largest hospital and calls for increasing the number of private rooms available to patients, as well as replacing surgical and treatment areas with ones that conform to 21st century standards. A sustainability strategy targeting LEED Silver will bring many benefits to patients, visitors, staff, and facility operations. Major components of this transformation include a new building on Congress Street that adds a major entrance to the campus, a two-story vertical addition to the East Tower, relocating the helipad atop the new top floor, adding capacity to the visitor parking garage, building a new staff parking garage, and removing the existing employee parking garage which has outlasted its useful lifespan. The need to replace that garage creates an opportunity to reorient the hospital to Congress Street, one of the city’s main thoroughfares. The hospital’s current main entrance faces Bramhall Street in the city’s largely residential West End. This will result in civic benefits by activating the Congress Street corridor and removing traffic from residential areas.
