PC Construction announced it has received a Build Maine Award from the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Maine. The company earned recognition in the Building category for its work on a major renovation and expansion project at three school buildings within Regional School Unit (RSU) 21 in the Kennebunk area.

"We are honored to once again receive this great distinction from the AGC of Maine for our team's efforts at RSU 21," said Jay Fayette, CEO of PC Construction. "The physical improvements we put into place will enhance the educational experience of the region's young people for generations to come. While we take great pride in every project we undertake, it's particularly meaningful to be recognized for our craftsmanship on a project with such lasting community impact."

The $47.2 million project included the rehabilitation and expansion of two elementary schools and the area's high school. In total, more than 147,000 sq. ft. of renovations and nearly 135,000 sq. ft. of additions were completed at the Mildred L. Day School, Kennebunkport Consolidated School, and Kennebunk High School.

"Our infrastructure was aging, so this project was a ‘must' to ensure all Kennebunk students could have access to a great education on a safe and modern campus," said Steve Marquis, director of operations of RSU 21. "These upgraded facilities provide added functionality and many more opportunities for educational programming than we ever had before."

This year's award marks the third time in recent years that PC Construction has been honored by AGC Maine. In 2018, PC Construction was one of only five contractors statewide to be honored with a Build Maine Award. That award, also in the Building category, recognized PC's exemplary efforts in constructing the $22.5 million Hiawatha Building at 667 Congress St. in downtown Portland. In 2016, the company was recognized in the Industrial category for the $61.3 million Bath Iron Works (BIW) Facilities Upgrade project in Bath, Maine.

With almost 500,000 hours logged by PC Construction and subcontractors, the RSU 21 project was completed in December 2018, on time, on budget, and with zero lost time injuries.
