University of Southern Maine Ice Arena, by Wright-Ryan

The University of Southern Maine was building a new ice arena, the largest enclosed ice surface north of Boston, and construction had to be completed in the fall to accommodate sports teams. Problems with the permitting process delayed the project’s start by several months.  The construction schedule was now cut in half.  Meeting a demanding schedule can be a challenge.  The real challenge comes when that schedule is drastically reduced.  Wright-Ryan is consistently able to come through.
