For years, the GSA’s future tenant for the in-progress Phoenix Professional Office Building has been operating from one federal building and three leased facilities in Phoenix – a setup incongruent with its goals. “The existing facilities are incapable of providing the required square footage necessary to support new functions, and cannot meet enhanced IT infrastructure-sufficient space to meet its current requirements and allow for full compliance with Interagency Security Committee (ISC) guidelines,” the GSA explains. 

It takes a contractor with a great deal of experience in the healthcare sector working closely with a talented healthcare architect to successfully value-engineer a hospital’s design while maintaining aesthetics. That’s exactly what Nabholz Construction Services and Health Facilities Group accomplished for the new Scott County Hospital in Scott County, Kan., which replaces an existing facility.

Miron Construction believes that two heads are better than one. If the project allows, it doesn’t hurt to have a third opinion, too – so long as the diverse views are aligned to one goal. In the case of a replacement facility for the old Langlade Hospital in Antigo, Wis., the patients take preference.

Working together in a joint-venture partnership, the Washington, D.C., office of Manhattan Construction Co. and Torcon Inc. of Red Bank, N.J., are making steady progress on the $510 million U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) project currently under way at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md. Groundbreaking occurred in August 2009, and construction is slated to be completed by November 2014. After a two- to three-year period of certifications and inspections, USAMRIID will open in 2016 or 2017.

There is a perception that exists within various circles of the construction industry about minority-owned businesses. Many believe large, established contractors pursuing government contracts partner with minority business enterprises (MBE) on paper only to meet the criteria for minority participation on a given job.

The mission of Guam Waterworks Authority (GWA) – “Investing in Better Water Better Lives” – is the public corporation’s promise to the civilian residents of Guam. GWA is responsible for providing drinking water that meets the federal Safe Drinking Water Act guidelines to Guam’s civilian residents, as well as collecting about 60 percent of the island’s wastewater, and treating and disposing of it in compliance with the Clean Water Act.

When The Hagerman Group broke ground on Taylor University’s Greg and Mary Fran Euler Science Complex in May 2010, the Upland, Ind.-based university saw the project as a way to ensure it continues to have one of the “premier programs among Christian colleges and universities throughout the United States,” according to Dr. Mark Biermann, dean of Taylor’s School of Natural and Applied Sciences.
