Gilbane Building Company Honored by Fox Valley AGC with Top Project and Safety Awards
CHICAGO, IL MARCH 03, 2016 – Gilbane Building Company was recently presented with two prestigious awards by the Fox Valley Associated General Contractors. The Bensenville School District #2 Additions and Renovations Program was selected as the Fox Valley AGC’s Project of the Year in the Construction Management Project Value over $5 million category. This $61 million project consisted of additions and renovations to three Bensenville School District #2 schools: Tioga School, W.A. Johnson School and Blackhawk Middle School totaling more than 220,000 SF. Construction took place while school was ongoing, and every grade level was maintained over a three-year period. Gilbane built all new areas during the school year and demolished older areas during summer months, while maintaining a secure and safe environment. The Fox Valley AGC selection committee was impressed with the size and complexity of this program. Gilbane also received the 2015 Safety Excellence Award in the category of 250,000 Man-Hours and Above category.
