Construction Starts on New MDOC Women’s Re-Entry Facility

Landry/French Construction, one of Maine’s leading construction companies, recently broke ground on the new Maine Department of Corrections Women’s Re-Entry Facility in Windham, Maine.

General contracting project for Maine Department of Corrections

The 21,500-SF, 72-bed facility is being built on the undeveloped eastern side of a 108-acre, MDOC-owned parcel that already houses one other correctional facility along River Road. The project includes a range of housing levels across three medium-security units, a 40-space parking lot, new driveways and drop-off areas, a delivery loop, new sidewalks and the extension of existing utilities. The facility will also offer more rehabilitative programs and assisted-living beds for aging inmates. It will replace the 64-bed Southern Maine Re-Entry in Alfred, which the department currently leases.

The new facility was designed by SMRT of Portland.
