Alfond Center for Health - MaineGeneral Medical Center
MaineGeneral Medical Center, also called the Alfond Center for Health is the largest single construction project completed in Maine’s History and also the largest single contract awarded to Windham Millwork. The 640,000 square foot, $224 million state of the art hospital located in Augusta, Maine was a merger of two hospital campuses that were 20 miles apart into one single location. This project also utilized a true Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) contract approach, the first of its kind in Maine. It also used lean construction tools and methods.
Windham Millwork, once awarded the contract, was hired in a “design-assist” capacity and worked very closely with the architects and engineers making sure to use the most efficient materials and fabrication techniques. These early design meetings helped pave the way for a highly collaborative approach which resulted in a very successful project.
The IPD method is a collaborative alliance of people, systems, business structures and practices that optimize project results, increased value to the owner, reduced waste and maximized efficiency through all phases of design and construction. Communication and transparency were at the heart of the collaborative effort, with IPD partners physically based at a central “co-location” site to work as a collaborative team, instead of in silos. The culture that is created by each party having a seat at the table is key to the success of the project. This IPD approach allowed the entire team to complete the project 36 months from the start of the design, finishing design and construction a full ten months ahead of the original schedule. The upfront collaboration with all members of each team brought $20 million in value – added savings to the hospital.
In conclusion, it was a pleasure to work on this project. Windham Millwork takes pride in providing a safe environmentally friendly dining hall for students to enjoy. We would like to thank Fryeburg Academy for allowing us to work on their beautiful campus and we would also like to thank all of our partners involved with this project. Lastly, we hope Fryeburg Academy enjoys its state of the art custom millwork package.
