Company says contract means jobs for area
March 22, 2011 4:22 PM
Leaders of a Pittsburgh-based general contracting company said they plan to bring scores of new jobs to the Jacksonville area this summer.
Dck North America was recently awarded a $22 million design-build contract for a number of new buildings aboard the Camp Geiger school of infantry, including a 64,000 square foot academic classroom building, three single-story applied instruction buildings, and a storage facility, weather shelter, and upgrades to surrounding site work and infrastructure, said Joe Zuckowski, the company’s vice president of business development.
Dck has already begun on the design portion of the contract and plan to break ground in August or September. At peak, Zuckowski said dck will likely have 100-120 workers on-site. And he said the company is hoping to hire local businesses to help complete the roughly $18 million in subcontracting work dck will have available.
“The bulk of the job will be done by local subcontractors and we will be looking to hire as many as we can,” he said.
Zuckowski said the contract is dck’s first aboard local bases, though they hope many more will follow.
“We’ll be bidding much of the upcoming expansion and construction work at both Geiger and Lejeune,” he said, “and there are additional task orders coming out.”
Dck is planning to have a subcontractors’ industry day to share information about the work at a date to be determined, Zuckowski said.
