Award Winning Historical Restoration Projects
Avatar Construction has had the opportunity to work on several award winning historical restoration products over the years. Preserving our history and important landmarks has always been an important aspect of what we do and the process always brings up new challenges making each project unique and rewarding. From minor restorations to complete building rehabs, Avatar is capable of handling all restoration projects big and small.

In 2011, the town received a Maine Spirit of America Foundation Award, for outstanding community service and for our efforts to promote volunteerism.
