Items manufactured in southern Maine, then shipped to Augusta for installation.
AUGUSTA — All the woodwork, countertops, sink tops, windowsills and even the protective strips along the walls and the corner protectors are coming from a single firm in Windham. Dan Berube, onsite foreman for Windham Millwork, talks about the cabinets that workers have already installed during a tour on Dec. 4 at the new MaineGeneral regional hospital in Augusta. The cabinets, counters and some other items are pre-made back in the shop at Windham Millworks before being shipped up and installed.
It’s all part of the emerging hospital under construction in north Augusta, where Maine General Medical Center is spending $312 million to consolidate operations in a modern building.
