Demand for growing space has experienced commercial builders expanding their skills

In addition to the strained residential property market in South Maine, the industrial and commercial markets are also affected by minor vacancies. Both established business owners and entrepreneurs are waiting to open and delaying growth or looking for opportunities to start their own new building.

Medical cannabis companies looking for growing, processing, or storage operations have specific needs that make it difficult to find the right space available. The cost of retrofitting, maintenance, and delaying business growth can make new builds seem like a good option.

PATCO Commercial Construction, based in Sanford, has been in the metal construction and roofing business for over 30 years. Supporting the growth of Maine’s cannabis industry was a natural fit and an exciting way to build their expertise, according to Jon Bell, director of field sales and operations at PATCO.

“We never did a hockey arena until we did the Casco Bay Ice Arena Yarmouth,” he said. “And we never built a climbing gym until we did Salt Pump [Climbing Co. in South Portland]. We like projects that push us out of our comfort zone, learn something new and meet customer needs. “

PATCO specializes in prefabricated and fabricated steel structures, creating durable, cost-effective buildings with wide, open spaces. While many parts of the building are pre-fabricated, their internal design-build process is customized to suit each client’s needs.

“Our project management teams oversee the entire process from start to finish and the steel crew is focused on getting the job done right and on time,” said Bell.

As a family-run small business, PATCO naturally attaches great importance to cost-efficient processes, but also to integrity, fairness, respect and loyalty. Their goal is to build a partnership with each customer that focuses on clear, consistent communication to keep customers informed and responsive to their needs.

“Of all the things we build, we are most proud of the relationships we build with our customers,” said company co-owner Greg Patterson. “These values ​​determine what we do, how we do it and who we work with on our business projects. In our work, we always strive to do the right thing. “
