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.

Big and beefy web presence, because, size, afterall, does matter!


size-does-matter.jpgBig and beefy, fresh and meaty, can you guess what it is?  My Internet presence!  Why is that super cool and important to you?  If you are selling your home in a military town, most prospective buyers are in Sand Diego, northern Virginia, Pensacola, South Carolina and the like.  They aren’t here.  If you are reading this, like most folks, you must be doing a little web research, looking for a home, an agent, to learn more about the Jacksonville, NC area, or perhaps found a listed tag that pertains to a special interest of yours.  However you found me, the fact is, that you did.  I’m glad you’re here, I hope you find the information helpful.  If you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact me.  I’d love to walk you through the sale or purchase of a property in the Jacksonville area. . .or help you find a rental if you plan to be in the area under two years.

It is an exciting time to be in Jacksonville. . .especially this time of the year.  But keep in mind, if you are looking for a listing agent, you found my page. . .well, pages plural. . .but how many does your average real estate broker have?  If you’re lucky ONE. . .I have THREE not to mention countless networking sites. . .which when you’re trying to get attention for your property from down the street to on the other side of the world, it matters.

blue-eggs.jpgIt’s that time of year!  And, SO exciting!  Spring is of course great, but for me, made even better by all the nice folks I get to meet as they begin to make their moving plans!  I can tell by the steep uptick in traffic on my websites as well as this blog that more and more of you are out there, testing the market, doing lots of great research on your own and, looking for an agent.  If I am lucky enough to have you find me, I hope you will consider my services.  I’m more than happy to interview for the job, but a huge thumbs up already, you found me, which means I have pretty decent web exposure which, in a military town, is how a bulk of you folks look for homes and learn about your new hometown.  If you are still needing more information and can’t find it here, try either of my websites:
