Specifications include, but are not limited to: The proposed work is a comprehensive building system renovation in the circa 1969 facility shared by the Cultural Agencies. The gross floor area is approximately 150,000 square feet on five floors plus a partial basement. The Cultural Building is adjacent to the Maine State House and the Cross-State Office Building.
Upgrades to the HVAC and associated electrical systems in coordination with hazardous materials remediation is the highest priority. A main goal is to minimize the disruptive impact of the renovation work on the various public access spaces, collections storage and work spaces, offices, and other support spaces in the Cultural Building. The work includes phased implementation and temporary relocations to accommodate the asbestos remediation and renovation activities in a facility occupied outside of the remediation/construction areas. Temporary Utilities may also be necessary depending on how the projects are phased.
