Out With a Bang

As 2013 comes to a grinding end there were a few projects of interest that had selections made at the end of last week or today.

After a few weeks of deliberation, Gilbane Building Co. was chosen as the CM for the exterior remediation of Westinghouse’s headquarters building in Cranberry.

WVU announced the results for its new $11 million baseball stadium and the team of Mascaro/DLA+ Architecture/Populous scored the highest in the design/build proposals. Mascaro also hit one out of the park at the University of Pittsburgh, where their $7.3 million design/build proposal scored the highest with the Dept. of General Services for the Cathedral of Learning’s elevator modernization program.

The Butler Eagle reported late last week that Oxford Development had purchased the land that is the VA’s preferred site for its $60 million outpatient center from Westar Development. Westar was awarded the build-to-suit project late last year but was unable to get the project started. Oxford would seem to be in the driver’s seat to put the project back on track, assuming the VA agrees.
