November 2017  (No. 63)
Welcome to our newsletter, once a month we will update you with news about David Matero Architecture and our community. We welcome your comments, questions and feedback.
Department of Transportation

We have been working on a major renovation to an existing building in Wilton for the Maine Department of Transportation. An existing 12,000 sf, two-story building that was once a store will be the headquarters for Region 3 of DOT. A small addition will include egress stairs and an elevator. The project is currently out to bid, and if you are interested in more information (or bidding), please visit this website.
Tao Yuan Greenhouse

Construction has begun at Tao Yuan Greenhouse in Brunswick, behind the popular Tau Yuan Restaurant. This exciting project will become a hydroponics greenhouse that will raise fish in the basement to clean and provide nutrients for the plants in the greenhouse. The floor between will be a commercial kitchen, bakery, and wine shop. Construction by PM Construction.
Views from the job site

This month the Patriot Insurance Company is scheduled to occupy their new headquarters in Yarmouth. Construction is nearing completion by Landry/French, and everyone is excited to see the final details come together of this 34,000 sf building. 

Twisted Christmas

You will want to add December 1 and 2 to your calendar so you can celebrate a Twisted Christmas at the Winter Street Church. Studio Theatre of Bath has put together a fun and somewhat adult variety show for the last few years, and it's always fun and silly, a perfect anecdote to the Christmas shopping season. Tickets are available at the door or online at the STB website.

Harpswell Get-Away

The Harpswell Get-Away now has a standing seam metal roof, windows, and much of the cedar siding installed. The large stone fireplace is complete, and mechanical/electrical rough-in is beginning. Construction by Oceanside Builders.

MSB Annual Dinner

As always, the Main Street Bath Annual Dinner is a great showcase of our community, with locally sourced food and a review of the year in Bath. Awards are given from each committee. David is pictured here giving the Organization Committee's Spirit of Bath Award to Irene Drago, writer of a blog since 2014, Bath Times - A Seasonal Society.
On the Drawing Board

We are at very preliminary concept stage for a new 12,000 sf office building in Falmouth. Designed to be energy efficient with high-performing mechanicals, sun shades and the ability to be expanded.  Here is a quick glimpse of the massing sketch.
