PA Army National Guard / PA Department of General Services / Department of Military and Veterans Affairs
This project included construction of new Readiness Center/Armory on 12 acres of Department of Military and Veteran’s Affairs (DMVA) land.
Phase 1 included a schematic design/engineering. Phase 2 – site design and construction documents – was awarded to Keller Engineers as part of a Design-Build Contract.
The Design-Build contract included design that evolved as construction documents were being finished through negotiations with the DMVA and negotiations with adjacent property owner to obtain easements for connection to sanitary sewer and potable water supply.
We have teamed with Keller Engineers on several design-build projects for PennDOT. When selecting a designer, the more critical factors are trust and competence, more so than a low price. If your designer makes a mistake in quantities it can cost you a lot of money. We have stayed with Keller Engineers because we trust them to provide competent service at a competitive price. S.
