Gilmore Construction has been awarded a new project at The Federal Center, underscoring our company’s reputation for delivering excellent work to government agencies that must be able to count on timely delivery under sensitive circumstances.

We will be working on the first and second floors of Building 95, also known as the National Water Quality Laboratory in Lakewood. Gilmore was chosen for this project in part because the facilities to be worked on will be fully occupied during construction, and our company has a demonstrated track record for causing minimal disruption to workplace operations — a strength that is even more important because this is a high-security facility.

Gilmore has worked at The Federal Center for years and has completed several major projects there under the terms of a recently completed Indefinite Design Indefinite Quantity contract, which is an on-call contract extended only to qualified contractors in an elite pool.

“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 the Federal Center.

Gilmore learned about the $2.065 million contract award in September. The job will mostly entail the relocation and renovation of the laboratory space.
