A/Z Breaks Ground at General Dynamics Electric Boat
A/Z and our partners Gilbane Building Company, Dimeo Construction Company, and Stantec broke ground with Rhode Island state and local officials on Monday for General Dynamic Electric Boat’s two new buildings in Quonset Point.
Senator Jack Reed, ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, attended the event with Congressman Jim Langevin, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, and Secretary of Commerce Stefan Pryor as well as the president of Electric Boat, Jeffrey Geiger.
“These new state-of-the-art facilities will help our well-trained and dedicated workforce to continue to deliver highly capable submarines to our Navy,” said General Dynamics Electric Boat President Jeffrey Geiger. “This is the start of a significant capital investment up here on Quonset Point to build out what will be nearly twice the square footage of module assembly space to support a significant increase in building submarines for the United States Navy and all the jobs that come along with it,” said Geiger.
A/Z will serve as a construction manager for the new VPM Building. You can view some of the news coverage at the links below:
