The town of Sebago, the Sebago Fire and Emergency Medical Services departments, and Gorham-based firm Great Falls Construction broke ground Feb. 15 for a new fire-apparatus storage building project at 7 Pit Road.

The building comes after years of planning and collaboration between the Cumberland County town, fire department and the design-build team to find a solution that will serve the town well into the future, according to a news release

The stand-alone metal-framed building will be 4,900 square feet and will have three bays for emergency engines and one bay for utility emergency response equipment use and storage. 

The building will also feature a modern decontamination room for personnel to clean equipment regularly and mezzanine area for storage. 

“We are excited to begin the construction of this building to improve safety response for our community for years to come,” said Fire Chief Phillip Strike.

In early 2022, a design/build team led by Great Falls Construction was selected in response to the town’s request for proposals. In addition to Great Falls, the team is comprised of civil engineering firm Sebago Technics of South Portland, architectural firm Grant Hays Associates of Falmouth and structural engineering firm Structural Integrity of Portland. 

Planning took two years.

“It was a true team effort to get to where we are today and our construction team is eager to build this facility to serve the Sebago community well for many years to come,” said Jon Smith, owner and president of Great Falls Construction.

The town of Sebago was incorporated Feb. 10, 1826, nearly 198 years to the day of the groundbreaking. The town has a population of 1,911 as of the 2020 U.S. Census, with significant seasonal increase during the summer.
