Northeast Construction of Waldo has broken ground on a new ReVision Energy facility near the intersection of Routes 3 and 220.

ReVision specializes in renewable energy, providing a full range of engineering, design and installation of equipment for homes, businesses, municipal buildings and nonprofits according to its website. Over the years, the company has grown, with offices now located in Liberty and Portland, as well as Brentwood and Upper Valley, New Hampshire, and North Andover, Massachusetts.

According to Branch Manager Jen Albee, earthwork began last week. Architect John Spadola of Searsmont designed the 60-by-100-foot structure, which is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

While an official "shovel in the dirt" event is not out of the question, Albee said, "we're more likely to have a celebration when it's all said and done."

The larger facility will accommodate warehousing, office and showroom space, as well as more parking for the company's expanding vehicle fleet.

"We will definitely have a larger work area in the new digs," she said. "The footprint of the new building is … roughly doubling our space, mostly in warehouse capacity."

The new location is on a 5.1-acre parcel that abuts Route 220 on the northwest side and Route 3 on the south, with options for entrances on both.

"Everyone is so excited about the new building and to be deepening our roots in Waldo County," Albee said.

"For the last 16 years our shop in Liberty has grown from two employees in a minivan to 50 employee-owners installing hundreds of solar energy systems each year. It’s inspiring to reflect on how our company has grown in Maine and beyond, and how it all started right here on West Main Street (in Liberty)."
