AlliedCook Construction is celebrating its 55th year in business. The company has earned the reputation as one of the premier construction management and design-build companies in Maine and New Hampshire with extensive experience in education, healthcare, commercial, industrial, housing and hospitality projects.
Established in 1958 by Donald W. Cook and later led by son David H. Cook who took over as president in 1977, AlliedCook transitioned from a traditional general contractor into one of today’s most successful firms specializing exclusively in construction management and design build. Some of the firm’s most notable projects over the decades include the original Maine Mall; 100 Middle Street East and West Office Towers in downtown Portland, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Headquarters, Fairchild, Portland Harbor Hotel, and Guy Gannett Publishing to name a few.
AlliedCook’s commitment to client service is demonstrated by numerous long-standing relationships, including a 50-year relationship with Morong Falmouth, a 35-year relationship with the University of New England, a 20-year relationship with Sandy River Company, and a nearly 20-year relationship with Gorham Savings Bank among numerous others.
AlliedCook Construction is now led by third generation Matthew D. Cook, President, and Daniel S. Cook, Executive Vice President. As Chief Executive Officer, Dave Cook still remains active in the business. The Cook’s contribute their success over the years to a strong commitment to their core values – integrity, trust and superior quality. “Throughout our 55-year history, we have been privileged to develop meaningful relationships with our clients. We are grateful for and truly value those relationships which have allowed us to be successful throughout the decades, said Matthew Cook.
AlliedCook recently completed construction of UNEs New College of Dental Medicine inPortland; Renovations to Drummond and Piper Halls at Colby College; Renovations to Alumni Hall at the University of Maine in Orono; and a New Medical Office Building for Mercy in Falmouth. Projects currently under construction include a New Memory Care Center for Avita of Stroudwater in Westbrook; a New Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) for Casa in Scarborough; Renovations for Husson University’s Westbrook Campus; and a 3-story, 67,000-SF office addition at 100 Arboretum Drive in Newington, New Hampshire.
