Federal Building Design & Construction

Working to be the federal construction contractor of choice is a priority! We view it as our responsibility to exceed federal requirements through innovation and to provide value at every project phase.

Our federal building design and construction experience includes healthcare, administration, classroom, housing, hangars, warehouse and research facilities. We believe that clearly defined personnel roles/responsibilities, efficient procurement procedures, and a proven quality control program aligned with federal requirements are necessary elements for success.

In 2008, Barton Malow acquired the L.C. Gaskins Construction Company, based in Jacksonville, Florida, and Warner Robins, Georgia, to increase federal capabilities. Gaskins has worked continuously in the federal building construction market for over 30 years, completing hundreds of design-build, negotiated, and general contracting projects with stellar ratings.

At the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, we readily accepted the responsibility to deliver the design/build renovation of the King Hall Galley – a 60,000 square foot facility that serves 13,500 meals each day!

To get the King Hall Galley project organized quickly, Barton Malow worked with customer representatives to establish goals and to map out a strategy to build a temporary kitchen while the old King Hall Galley was renovated. Detailed planning and communication was critical to deliver thousands of meals during construction.

Barton Malow assisted the owner with LEED certification requirements and worked to troubleshoot renovation design challenges. The efforts helped to produce higher quality mechanical systems and finishes at no additional cost. In fact, the mechanical systems will save the Naval Academy money through energy efficiency.

During the project, Barton Malow maintained quality control by identifying issues early and worked with the architect, engineers, and the owner’s representative to evaluate and remediate each issue quickly. Attention to detail and comprehensive activity tracking ensured project delivery in adherence to Navy requirements and extended the building life – a team goal.

We love working to build innovative solutions. Put us to work on your next federal building development project.
