Scope of Work

Twenty-eight wind towers at an elevation of 1,800 feet required road construction for the crane to move from tower to tower.


To design a road that worked with contours and allowed the crane the appropriate grades and radii. The foundations have huge wind loads and had marginal geotechnical conditions.


The team met the challenge by creating both the material needed and the grades required. The foundations were accomplished with the highest capacity solid rock anchors available.


With the final permits in place in Spring, the work had to be completed before severe winter conditions. An 18-month schedule was compressed to 9 months.


The project's success gave Maine people more jobs on future projects, as well as more green power.
