After two years of planning and a city-wide vote to locate the new headquarters building downtown, Nickerson & O’Day won an open-bid process against six other contractors and began driving steel H-piles into the structurally incompetent soils beneath the building in the fall of 2005.
With the critical path being the new, three-story building Nickerson & O’Day focused its efforts there starting the project as winter closed in, the poor subsurface soil conditions and virtually no “lay-down”/storage area were all challenges that Nickerson & O’Day met and solved.
At the Owner’s request, the dispatch office was relocated into the building one month early and overall the project was completed on-time and under budget giving Bangor its new, state-of-the-art facility.
It incorporates a full-service evidence storage/lab facility, a five lane indoor firing range, workout/locker room, storage bays for five police vehicles, dispatch office, administrative offices, detention/questioning facilities, detective offices and even a police museum to celebrate Bangor’s colorful law enforcement history.
