Cleanup of the Former Westpoint Stevens Mill Boiler House

The Pepperell Mill Campus partnered with Marble Block Redevelopment Corp for an Abatement and Demolition project at the former WestPoint Stevens Mill Boiler House located at 2 Main Street in Biddeford, Maine. The project planning started in 2019 and was completed earlier this year, transforming the building from a Boiler House into an empty shell ready for re-development.

A Look Inside Building 37 Before Demolition

Envirovantage, a demolition contractor, was contracted to perform the work. The work included Demolition, dismantling, and appropriate off-site disposal of six multi-story boilers; Abatement of asbestos-containing materials associated with the boilers, and in other areas of the building in accordance with applicable local and state regulations. The work included removal and disposal of ash and coal from the former boilers.

This project was funded, in part, through a federal U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Cleanup Grant.
