65,000-SF Renovation of Former Data Center

MaineHousing, an independent state agency that assists low- and moderate-income families with housing needs, outgrew their offices in downtown Augusta and purchased a vacant building at 26 Edison Drive to meet their growing needs.

Built in the mid-1980s as a data center for a financial institution, the existing two-story, 65,000-SF building underwent extensive renovations to provide a modern, open office environment for MaineHousing’s 175 employees. The new space features large windows, allowing an abundance of natural light to flood the offices.

Landry/French worked closely with the client and architect during the preconstruction phase bringing valuable insight through early analysis of the design, budget, and materials, and served as Construction Manager overseeing the $12.9 million project.
