Custom House Square Office Building

The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) moved its global headquarters to Portland, consolidating its operations and hundreds of employees from multiple locations.  The organization settled on building a new facility in the heart of the Old Port, nestled between Fore and Commercial Street.  Wright-Ryan carefully erected a 65,000 square-foot 5-story building in a dense urban environment while coordinating with adjoining operations including Homeland Security. We even provided temporary walk-in coolers, freezers, and office space for a restaurant neighboring our work site and coordinated deliveries for a second restaurant on a daily basis. Even when the space is tight and seems impossible to work with, Wright-Ryan finds a way.
