Gilbane Building Company Receives AEI Construction Management Award of Excellence
Milwaukee, WI – April 2015 – The downtown Milwaukee office of Gilbane Building Company was recently honored by the Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) Board of Governors with the 2015 Award of Excellence in the category of Construction Management and Methods. Gilbane received the award for their work on the recently completed Schreiber Foods Home Office and Global Technology Center project in Green Bay, WI.
Gilbane provided construction management services for the new 260,000 SF corporate headquarter building. The building consists of office space; kitchen, servery and multiple test kitchens; laboratories; data center; and pilot plant for evaluating new dairy processes on a reduced scale.
“Our team was thrilled to be given such a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with Schreiber Foods and HGA Architects and Engineers on such an iconic project in downtown Green Bay. This was a challenging project from day one, yet with the remarkable relationships developed with Schreiber Foods and HGA, this project took on a whole new meaning to collaboration. The open expectations, communication, and transparency amongst the teams gave life to this rewarding project, which fostered lifetime relationships and pride in the project’s accomplishments,” said David Kwiatkowski, Gilbane project manager.
High sanitary conditions were required for food production, requiring unique material and installation techniques to be implemented for constructing the production areas. Gilbane coordinated efforts with Schreiber Foods and HGA Architects & Engineers to ensure the pilot plant equipment, material, and quality met industry and Schreiber Foods standards.
AEI was established in 1998 as a place for all professionals in the building industry to examine issues and exchange views and information with one another. The AEI Professional Project Award program is conducted annually and is designed to publicly acknowledge outstanding achievement in design and construction.
