Groundbreaking Held for New Public Safety Building in Wells

Landry/French Construction participated in a formal groundbreaking ceremony for the new Town of Wells public safety complex.

On June 19th, town officials, staff and members of the community gathered to celebrate the long-awaited facility. Planning for the new 40,000-SF combined police and fire station began in 2012. Police Chief Jo-Ann Putnam, who had advocated for the new building for the past 15 years, spoke at the groundbreaking and thanked Town Manager Jonathan Carter, selectmen, and taxpayers. The new state-of-the-art facility will replace the outdated and cramped 1960’s building that was constructed for use as a town hall.

The architect is Lavallee Brensinger Architects.  Construction is slated to be completed end of 2019.
