Gilbane Selected by General Dynamics Electric Boat as Program Manager
Providence, RI – April 14, 2016 – Gilbane Building Company has been selected by General Dynamics Electric Boat to provide program management services in support of their facility master planning in both Quonset Point, R.I. and Groton, Conn.
Facilities at both locations are being expanded to allow Electric Boat to construct Virginia- and Ohio-class replacement submarines. These expansion efforts are expected to span more than a decade and include land- and water-based facilities in both locations.
Gilbane is one of America’s leading builders and one of its primary duties on this assignment will be validating current planning and ensuring alignment with current and future operational business needs. Using these findings, Gilbane will work to align cost and schedule of Electric Boat’s Facility Master Plan with their business needs and financial plans. A critical element of this effort is maintaining uninterrupted, ongoing operations with cost and schedule demands. To do this, Gilbane will be challenged to identify creative project delivery and finance models.
Gilbane’s partners on this project include:
Stantec, which will provide design guidance for new facilities and existing facility / infrastructure assessment services and planning. Stantec has a 70-year history designing and supporting submarine facilities.
InnovaNet will deliver industrial and process engineering consulting services.
J2H Partners will be available throughout this project to provide financial and real estate consulting services.
“Our New England team is very pleased to have been selected by Electric Boat to help expand these strategic facilities in Rhode Island and Connecticut,” said Michael McKelvy, President and CEO of Gilbane Building Company. “We have had the honor of working on facilities of this nature and at Quonset Point and Groton, since the early days of World War II. We look forward to playing a part in helping expand these world-class manufacturing facilities.”
