S.W.COLE has provided geotechnical engineering, geoenvironmental consulting and construction materials testing services on over 30 projects at various Maine paper mills. We have worked on various projects at these vital paper mill facilities, including:
- Concrete pads
- Parking lots
- Bridge foundations
- Pier and dock projects
- Waste water treatment plant upgrades
- Building expansions
In recent years, S.W.COLE was retained to provide geotechnical engineering and construction materials testing services at a mill in central Maine in relation to the construction of a concrete pad, which was to be built over the existing paved roadway with buried utilities including waterlines and a catch basin. S.W.COLE has also provided regular laboratory soils testing in association with landfill closures at several mills in Maine for over 35 years.
As the paper industry in Maine has seen many changes in the last two decades, S.W.COLE’s work on these facilities has at times changed. Our relationship with many of the region’s largest mills continues to grow, however, and we look forward to providing services to the mills as they adapt to these changes.
