Windham Millwork, Inc has been selected as the architectural woodworking company to provide its custom woodwork to the new renovations at The Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. The Civic Center was built in 1977 and will see significant renovations this coming year. The renovations will increase the building by 20,000 square feet. In addition to the increase in size the arena will also be given a face lift to the existing structure. New entrances to the building, new lobbies including stairs, elevators and escalators. Additional restrooms, concession and merchandising area will be added as well. There will be new private suites and club team offices, administrative offices and locker rooms. Additionally, a larger ticket lobby and a complete retrofitting of the 7,000 arena seats.
In 1977, WMI was chosen as the architectural woodworking company of the original Civic Center. “It is incredible how our company has been a part of both historic moments in Portland. Our ability to remain involved in a project we completed over 36 years ago really solidifies the type of millwork company we have become,” says Roger Varney VP of Manufacturing at WMI. Windham Millwork will be responsible for the entire interior woodwork package of the new renovations. This includes all of custom woodwork in the restrooms, concession, merchandising area, private suites, team offices, administrative offices, locker rooms and ticket lobby. Cabinets, solid surface countertops, trim, vanities, locker room benches and custom millwork will be furnished and installed by WMI.
WMI is proud to be selected to provide the architectural woodwork in the newly renovated arena in Portland. The Cumberland County Civic Center is planned to open in November 2013. This will be the second arena completed by Windham Millwork this year, the other being The Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.
