The Big Jobs Are Out There

With no fanfare (or public announcement of any kind) Gordon Food Services has apparently chosen the Findlay Industrial Park as the site for its 500,000 sq. ft. refrigerated distribution center. Gordon is taking design/build proposals from Dan Vos Construction, Tippmann & Whiting-Turner around May 22. I haven’t seen costs for a refrigerated warehouse in a while here but they typically run as much as double a normal warehouse cost. That would put this project at $75 million or more.

The 302-unit Cranberry Woods apartments being developed by Trammell Crow is out to bid, due on May 22. The contractors invited to bid the $35 million project are Adolfson & Peterson, Dynamic, Facchina Construction, Fortune-Johnson Inc. & Mistick Construction.

And finally, in follow up to the buzz about Chevron’s regional headquarters last week, the company has issued a request for proposals to six construction managers or teams, due back at the end of the month. The firms involved include a mix of local & national players. Proposing are Balfour Beatty, Gilbane, Mascaro/Skanska, Massaro/Clark, PJ Dick & Whiting-Turner. The project is a campus on Montour Run Rd. that may be done in phases but should be in the $250 million range.
