The project will be at Building 251 on the NWTC campus at 18200 Highway 128, Boulder 80303. The building upgrade will include new flooring, ceiling tile and wall paint. The proposed start date is Oct. 5. Gilmore is part of NREL’s pool of qualified contractors and has already been selected twice to complete work on the campus. That Gilmore is going to complete this project in seven phases by Feb. 1 is a testament to our ability to coordinate projects carefully so there is minimum disruption to workplaces.
“Part of Gilmore’s strategic plan for 2015 and beyond is to target opportunities within the federal government because we have qualified superintendents and project managers with the knowledge, skills and experience to complete this highly specialized projects,” said Bob Bustos, vice president of construction operations. “Members of the Gilmore team have helped develop and execute several major projects for NREL.”
Gilmore has an IDIQ contract with NREL, and this building upgrade is part of that contract. IDIQ stands for Indefinite Design Indefinite Quantity and is essentially an on-call contract extended only to qualified contractors.
NREL is a research organization funded and operated through the U.S. Department of Energy and based in Golden, Colo. NREL is at the forefront of development of new fuels and renewable energy sources, such as wind power, that impact the environment significantly less than traditional fossil fuels.
