For two weeks now there have been rumors about the CM selection for the $250 million Chevron corporate campus. I even received a call from a colleague in Las Vegas who had been recruited to come to Pittsburgh as a project executive. It appears now that the rumors of the Mascaro/Skanska team selection are true, even if no one at Chevron has confirmed. Construction is set to begin around Labor Day on what will ultimately be a campus similar to the Westinghouse complex in Cranberry Twp.
Another project with no official confirmation yet is the $14 million Jefferson ambulatory surgery center in Bethel Park. While no confirmation has come yet from Highmark, it appears Rycon Construction will be the CM at risk.
Two projects bid recently in Erie have come to differing conclusions. The $10 million Gannon rec center went to Building Systems Inc. The low bidder on the $20 million Transit Operations Center expansion for the Erie Metro Transit Authority general construction package – Perry Construction – has apparently withdrawn its bid. The EMTA is likely to re-bid the package rather than award the contract to second low bidder PJ Dick.
