Recently completed projects include the J.B.

Ledgewood Construction of South Portland has been awarded the contract to build the new Kate Furbish Elementary School on Jordan Avenue in Brunswick. Construction is expected to start this season and continue through August 2020. That would put the school on track to open for the 2020-21 school year.

J.F. Scott Construction, a Winthrop-based contractor, completed restoration of the floor of the Colonial Theater in Augusta. The work is part of the $8.5 million renovation of the historic theater, vacant since 1969.

PM Construction Co. of Saco managed construction of the TAO Greenhouse, an aquaponics facility in Brunswick. The greenhouse will supply year-round food for the restaurant group Eighty-Ate Hospitality (Tao Yuan, Bao Bao Dumpling House and Lio). Canopy Farms L3C, which was developed by restaurant owners Cara and Cecile Stadler and greenhouse manager Kate Holcomb, will manage the site. The greenhouse will also have a café.

Cabin in the Woods has 21 one- and two-bedroom residences for Maine veterans. The $4.2 million project was a collaboration between Volunteers of America Northern New England and MaineHousing.

People on the move
