Landry/French typically discourages wearing jeans in the workplace, but we do make an exception with our “Jeans Friday” program. If an employee wishes to wear jeans on Friday, they pay a fee of $5.00 each week which goes into a savings account. We are pleased to announce that the funds raised in 2012 were in excess of $1000. We have donated 100% of the money to Project G.R.A.C.E. based out of Scarborough, Maine. If you are interested in more details about this organization, or care to donate, check this link below.
Landry/French recently started work on the following projects:
- USM Luther Bonney Hall Renovations
- Egg & I Restaurant (2nd project) Renovations to the former Friendly’s Building off of the Westbrook Exit
- Jesse Albert Dental and Orthodontic Center Renovations – Bath, ME
- Biddeford Dental Clinic new office in Biddeford, ME

A group of students associated with the Women Unlimited non-profit organization visited the Landry/French Construction site of the new Bangor Savings Bank Operations Center in Augusta, Maine. The group was there to observe concrete pours and to see the plans for the project. Landry/French donated 5 hours of time to the group touring them on the site and explaining the process. It was a very positive experience for everyone. A special thanks to our Superintendent, Larry Ross, for taking the time to do this.
