With some projects wrapped up and others starting, Great Falls Construction has been busy

COURTESY / GREAT FALLS CONSTRUCTION Great Falls Construction recently completed a 15,000-square-foot building for Summit Community Church in Gorham. The space, which includes a basketball court, serves as a multipurpose space for the church’s sanctuary.

Great Falls Construction has had a wide range of projects lately. Just as the Gorham-based builder is wrapping up some projects, it has others in the works.

Joey Smith, director of business development at Great Falls and JCS Property Management, gave us an overview of projects past and present.

Recently completed

  • For Summit Community Church, at 26 Cressey Road in Gorham, Great Falls built a 15,000-square-foot building that will be a multipurpose space for the church’s sanctuary. It includes a basketball court, classrooms that will be used as preschool and daycare, commercial kitchen and atrium that connects the gym space to the classroom spaces.
  • For RLC Engineering, at 176 Gannett Drive in South Portland, Great Falls managed a renovation of 21,000 square feet of office space. The project called for an open floor office layout, conference and meeting rooms, a new kitchen, breakroom and gym.
  • For Red City Ale House, at 8 Main St. in Windham, Great Falls converted the former South Windham Fire Station into a full-service restaurant. The 3,700-square-foot space has seating for up to 92 people, as well as outdoor dining for another 60 diners.

Under construction

Great Falls broke ground in June on the expansion of the Biddeford Regional Center of Technology. Funds for this project came through the Maine Jobs & Recovery Grant Funding to the goal of expanding career and technical education. Additional space will allow for training in culinary arts, plumbing, EMT services and athletic use. During the year-long construction process, Great Falls will hire some of the school’s students for certain tasks.

At the Gorham Industrial Park, Great Falls is building a 22,000-square-foot metal building, at 3 Industrial Parkway. It will house three businesses, including the Seedlings to Sunflowers Non-Profit Childcare & Family Center and a warehouse and shop space for Great Falls. The third space, of 5,000 square feet, is available and could be outfitted for the tenant’s specific needs.
