Racing against Mother Nature!
Progress continues for Nickerson & O'Day on the new $1.2 M New Hinckley Yachts Boat House and Storage Facility in Southwest Harbor. We are trying to beat the coming winter weather and expect project completion by mid-December...praying for "fair winds and calm seas"!
Great job so far by NOD PM Jason Lane and Superintendent Ellery Tracy...the radiant floor heat system is complete and the superstructure makes progress daily!

See Channel 7's coverage here

Nickerson & O'Day was awarded a $400,000 contract to renovate, make repairs to and extend the life of the gymnasium at the Ella Lewis School in Steuben.
Aside from minor efforts occurring over school breaks the remainder of the year, this work will all be completed next summer - just in time for students' return next August.
Many thanks to the administration for placing your faith in Nickerson & O'Day...one of Maine's leading school constructors!

Ella Lewis School in Steuben

Building for Maine's future leaders!
Yesterday we welcomed over 300 students, teachers, staff, administrators, local citizens and curious onlookers to the site of the new 50 million dollar Nokomis High School and Middle School.
This project will require over 220,000 cubic feet of ledge blasting, 1.3 million cubic feet of gravel, and 2 million pounds of structural steel to create this new 215,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility!
It will be the largest project in the 65 year history of Nickerson & O'Day! Be sure to check out our progress and come by for the grand opening in less than 3 years!

Honoring Maine's volunteers...
On October 5th, Karl once again had the honor and privilege of sponsoring and co-hosting the 2017 WLBZ2 To Those Who Care Awards at the Nickerson & O'Day-built Gracie Theatre on the campus of Husson University. He, along with WLBZ's Lee Goldberg and Amanda Hill and representatives from the Dead River Company and the United Way welcomed several hundred friends and family of 6 amazing and wonderful volunteers from Eastern and Central Maine - whose stories were portrayed in video and inspired us all! If you know someone who exemplifies caring and volunteerism in the community, please consider nominating them for next year's award!
