PC Construction was recently honored by the Associated General Contractors of America for its work on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland Commons Residence Hall and McGoldrick Center for Career & Student Success. The project earned a Construction Risk Partners Build America Award in the $76 million to $125 million new-building category.

The student residence hall project includes 580 beds with a mix of single-occupancy rooms, studios and multi-bedroom apartments. The McGoldrick Center comprises a career and employment hub, meeting rooms, study spaces and amenities, including a dining common, coffee shop and pub.

“As the largest construction project in USM’s history, we knew we needed the right team to bring our vision to reality,” said university President Jacqueline Edmondson. “We selected PC Construction for their reputation in the higher education industry of professionalism, solution-minded approaches and high-quality construction. Over the course of the project, I have seen that this reputation is well-deserved.”
