Civic & Cultural Community FacilitiesThe decision to build a new facility, or revitalize an existing space is often driven by complex drivers – economic growth, the need to revitalize under-served areas or competition from nearby municipalities. These facilities typically are signature designs, challenging urban sites, tightly prescribed timetables and budgets all linked to major fundraising efforts. Gilbane understands these challenges. Our impressive civic portfolio includes national landmarks, cultural facilities, and civic buildings in local communities.

  • National Landmarks– From the Smithsonian’s iconic National Air & Space Museum on the National Mall to the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center and the Vietnam, World War II and Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential memorials, Gilbane has been a part of building and transforming national treasures.
  • Cultural Facilities-  Gilbane has completed more than 35 museums totaling more than 4 million square feet. Gilbane understands what it takes to successfully deliver these highly sensitive facilities and protect the valuable collections they hold.
  • Civic Buildings in Local Communities– Whether it’s a massive convention center or a shared-use library or even a neighborhood center, Gilbane has been transforming communities with our renovation and new construction projects.  Beyond that, our focus on local business outreach ensures that the civic spaces that serve our neighbors are also built by our neighbors.
