MRRA PRESENTS KEY TO MÖLNLYCKE
March 19, 2013 by Mark Donovan, Project Manager
With construction of their state-of-the-art bandage manufacturing facility complete, Mölnlycke Health Care (MHC) received an oversized key to their building on Friday from Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority (MRRA) Chairman John Moncure in exchange for an oversized first month’s rent check. The key-exchange ceremony was attended by approximately 60 well-wishers including state and local dignitaries, MRRA officials, MHC employees and PC Construction staff.
When fully operational later this year, the facility will become a national leader in the manufacture of wound care products. And according to MHC Site Director Mark Dignum, expansion plans are already in the works as the Sweden-based company seeks to enhance its U.S. operations.
PC Construction served as general contractor on the $14 million project which is the first new construction to occur at Brunswick Landing, the site of a recently decommissioned Naval Air Station in Midcoast Maine. All told the building comprises:
- 400 tons of structural steel
- 125,200 square feet of roofing and siding materials
- 4,000 gallons of paint and coatings
- 9 miles of mechanical piping
- 55 tons of ductwork sheet metal
- 12 miles of electrical conduit
- 92 miles of cable
PC also served as construction manager for a renovation project at Brunswick Landing involving the conversion of two former office buildings into academic space for Southern Maine Community College.
According to MRRA Property Manager Bob Rocheleau, these two projects are just the tip of the iceberg as several more are slated to begin in the months ahead, including a school for autistic children, a waste-to-energy plant, a call center and new facilities for nearby Bowdoin College.
