R.J. Grondin & Sons was selected by New England Expeditions, LLC as the prime site contractor for this 220,000 square foot retail project, anchored by the 130,000 square foot Cabela’s store. With a March start, this fast track project required the 35 acre site to have trees cut, stumps pulled and processed, grubbings hauled off-site, build the main entrance for access, begin the major cuts and fills of the site and have the 50,000 cubic yards of material for the building pad and preload in place, in 8 weeks. In addition, the parking lots needed to have binder pavement complete by November, and a mid-May store opening required both onsite and offsite improvements to be complete. All deadlines were met on time and within budget. This project won the 2009 AGC Maine Build Maine Award.
