Published 6-24-2014

MaineGeneral Alfond Center for Health in Augusta is the first facility in Maine and the second in the nation to attain the new 2010 LEED Gold for Healthcare certification. The Integrated Project Delivery Team (IPD) included the joint venture architectural firms SMRT and TRO Jung|Brannen and the joint venture construction team of HP Cummings Construction Company and Robins & Morton. The 644,000-sf hospital opened in November of 2013, 36 months from the start of the design and ten months ahead of the original schedule due to implementation of Lean and IPD methodologies. Sustainable design features include the use of natural gas, LED lighting, occupancy sensors, rain and storm water recycling, low-maintenance flooring, construction waste recycling, and low-VOC finishes.
