Bucksport Family Medicine
|Owner||Blue Hill Memorial Hospital|
|Architect||Lewis & Malm|
In an effort to better serve the medical needs of Downeast Maine, Blue Hill Memorial Hospital constructed a regional medical center in Bucksport.
Once the original town armory in the 1800’s and a neighborhood hardware store through the 1940’s and 1960’s, this site was selected for it’s advantageous “downtown” location.
During construction, Nickerson & O’Day worked hand-in-hand with architect Lewis & Malm to overcome significant challenges such as fire and mold remediation, existing foundation/floor reconstruction and the removal and replacement of the buildings’ entire superstructure – none of whish was contemplated in the original design. Despite these hurdles, the effort was completed only four months later than originally planned despite the 125% increase in design budget and construction scope.
