Blais Civil Engineers featured in New England Real Estate Journal

Blais CE was a proud team member of the recently completed Merrill's Wharf renovation project featured in the latest edition of New England Real Estate Journal. The publication noted how the entire project team pulled together to create this stunning project. The article stated,

"Careful coordination allowed for the restoration of certain architectural elements throughout the building where exposed brick, granite and stone were blended into the décor. The project included the construction of networked offices for 170+ attorneys, a virtual conference center, a library, a large cafeteria, and a rooftop deck. Infrastructure improvements around the exterior including updated electric services and sidewalks were also completed to enhance the overall wharf area. Salvaged granite blocks from the Million Dollar Bridge which preceded the Casco Bay Bridge across the Fore River, mark the building's main entrance to celebrate and further preserve the significance of the landmark location."
