Consigli Performs Renovations and Upgrades at UMaine, Orono

ORONO, ME: Consigli Construction Co., Inc. announces that its Portland, Maine office has been commissioned to perform renovations, upgrades and energy improvements at the University of Maine flagship campus in Orono. Nutting Hall, which houses the University’s departments of Forestry and Wildlife Ecology will receive an energy upgrade and Neville Hall Data Center will undergo renovations and full data center upgrades.

Already underway, the 4,600 sq. ft. modernization and renovation of the University’s mission critical Neville Hall Data Center includes electrical and mechanical upgrades, exterior lighting, landscaping and paving improvements. The 24-hour facility will remain in constant operation during construction, which will be conducted in two phases. Architect for the project is Harriman.

Originally constructed in 1968 almost entirely from wood, the two-story, 50,000 sq. ft. Nutting Hall building will receive energy upgrades, including building envelope and prioritized HVAC equipment improvements and controls, structural upgrades and ADA improvements.  This unique and memorable building combines 27 different species of wood, many from native forests in Maine and contains administrative offices, conference rooms, classrooms, labs and lecture halls.  Work will begin this spring and will be performed while the building is occupied and around an active campus. Architect for the project is Lewis & Malm Architecture.

Completion of both projects is slated for fall of 2012.
