The County Federal Credit Union

Machias Savings Bank

York's of Houlton 2007 Expansion
This project was a huge addition to the Service area (84’ free span trusses), parts area, automatic car wash as well as considerable renovations to the existing facility. This project began construction at the end of November with difficult winter conditions. With hard work and great planning and communication we were able to complete the foundation by the end of December and construct this area during the middle of the winter without interrupting their day to day activities. This multi phased project was completed in 10 short months and within the approximate 2 million dollar budget.

Military Street Baptist Church

In the winter of 2012 we first broke ground on this 20,000 square foot project.  We formed and placed all of the steel reinforced concrete footings and frost walls. The entire building has radiant heat installed within the concrete floor. We constructed twenty foot tall walls using Louisiana Pacific’s laminated strand lumber in the multi-ministry area with the largest trusses ever made by Aroostook Trusses at a span of eighty-five feet. Asphalt shingles were applied to the roof, two hundred thirty-five squares. The siding consisted of Stonecraft masonry veneer, cementitious lap siding, and vertical panels with batten strips. This project was performed as a partial design build, constructed within budget and on time as usual.

Helen's Restaurant

After a devastating fire destroyed the existing restaurant in Machias, Maine, the owners worked with their architect and Buildings Etcetera to plan the perfect replacement.  With a community anxious to see their beloved establishment reopen, our staff worked diligently to complete the project in 8 months despite a brutal winter.  With seating for 175, an open concept, a beautiful view of the river and state-of-the-art furnishings, this 5600 square foot space is functional as well as visually appealing.
County Yankee
A new 12,000sf grocery store with a pharmacy were the basis of this project. Buildings Etcetera performed all concrete, culture stone, structural steel, carpentry, finish carpentry, weather protections, doors and windows as well as installation of all walk-in cooler/ freezer panelized units as well as a portion of the equipment installation.  With primarily local subcontractors and portions requiring design/build aspects this new facility was completed on schedule as usual.
Houlton Higher Education Center
This project involved converting a former grocery store into an educational outreach center.  The 15,800sf building now houses classrooms for the University of Maine, Houlton Adult Education, Northern Maine Community College and the Carlton Project.  The building features full handicapped access, a vaulted ceiling in the lobby, and several modern offices, classrooms and computer labs.  This learning center makes higher education much more accessible to the residents of Southern Aroostook County.  This project was completed on time, under budget and using primarily Aroostook County labor forces.
The restaurant chain has changed its look.  For this project in Lincoln, Maine, Buildings Etcetera razed the existing building in order to build the structure that reflects McDonald's new vision.  From the groundwork to the final finishing touches, we worked with our reliable subcontractors to ensure that the 5000 square foot restaurant opened its doors as scheduled. Within three months, customers were again frequenting this popular site.
S.W. Collins
Buildings Etcetera also performs precise steel erection.  Whether it is a prefabricated STAR building or a combination of individual components, our staff has the expertise and experience to create an impressive final product.  This 19,000 square foot retail business consisting of structural steel, steel joists, and steel decking is the premier building supply store in Lincoln, Maine.  With 22 foot high walls, it is
a spacious, modern, energy-efficient structure that was  completed in 6 months
