Gilbane’s Response to COVID-19
The safety of our employees and trade partners on our project sites and offices is our top priority. As information about COVID-19 continues to evolve, we are monitoring updates daily with a team of industry leaders to ensure that we are adhering to the most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines as well as state and local agencies on behalf of our clients, industry partners and our communities.
Caring is one of Gilbane’s core values and our employees are committed to making a difference in their communities. During this time of unprecedented need, their efforts have taken on new meaning. Working together to build emergency hospital facilities around the country, setting up testing sites for our healthcare clients and bagging /distributing free lunches for the homeless, are just some of the ways our teams have been reaching out to help.
The things that we’re learning during the COVID-19 crisis are teaching us new and better ways to protect ourselves. I’m certain that we’ll be using them for many, many years to come.
