Landry/French Receives Three Maine Preservation Honor Awards

Merrill Memorial Library

At an annual awards ceremony held on November 16th, Landry/French Construction received three 2016 Maine Preservation Honor Awards. The projects recognized were Brick North at Thompson’s Point in Portland, Merrill Memorial Library in Yarmouth, and the Charles E. Moody School at Good Will-Hinckley in Hinckley.

Brick North at Thompsons Point

Brick North at Thompson’s Point, a 1904-industrial building that once stored steel used for WWII Liberty Ships, was restored and transformed into a functional and energy-efficient arts and entertainment hub. Brick North now houses several successful Maine businesses.

Merrill Memorial Library, a 1904-05 building, was completely renewed with restored historic features, added insulation and a new high efficiency mechanical system. A new entryway serves as a light-filled community gathering space and also creates a safer, more accessible approach to the library.

Charles E Moody School

The Charles E. Moody School at Good Will-Hinckley was fully rehabilitated after sitting empty for nearly 40 years, and is again serving the educational needs of Maine’s children as the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences, Maine’s first charter high school.

The Maine Preservation Honor awards recognizes excellence in historic preservation throughout the state, highlighting the importance of preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse of important historic Maine landmarks and the owners, professionals and workers who make them happen. The 2016 Honor Awards recognized 15 projects which were nominated earlier this year.
