Orchard Trails

Orono, ME

Location(s): 4 Empire Drive
Orono, ME

Client: GMH Associates

Size: 12 buildings on 61 acres

Contractor: P C Construction Company

Orchard Trails is a master planned residential community consisting of 12 three-story structures, containing 144 four-bedroom living units and a community center on a 61-acre parcel of land. WBRC provided architecture, site master planning, engineering, permitting and construction document assistance to the owner in navigating tiers of local, state, and federal site plan review concerns, including stormwater quality, wetland impact, vernal pool mitigation, visual impact, lighting impact, and traffic impacts.

Full construction documents and oversight were provided for the 576 bed facility, including a centrally located community building for tenants of the client, GMH Communities Trust (now American Campus Communities). Large project experience, close communication with the client, and WBRC’s interaction with permitting agencies were key to our client’s successful completion of this plan.
