August 03, 2005
The Anchorage Museum of History and Art's Museum Building Committee has selected Alcan General Inc. to begin contract negotiations for preconstruction and construction services for the museum expansion project, announced committee chair Brian E. Davies. Alcan General Inc. was selected from among five qualified firms that responded to the request for proposals for the project.
Alcan General Inc. constructed the $47.6 million Dimond High School replacement in Anchorage and the $21 million Rabinowitz Courthouse in Fairbanks. Both projects were featured in Pacific Builder & Engineer magazine for translating building designs into finished products. Alcan has received numerous awards, including the 2000 Associated General Contractors Excellence in Construction Award and the Alaska Governor's Safety Award of Excellence. Alcan General Inc. has served as general contractor for municipal, borough, and federal projects in Anchorage and interior Alaska.
"We are very excited and looking forward to working on this great project," said Alcan General President Terry Fike. "We are especially excited about rising to the challenge of bringing a high level of finish to the project and are looking forward to working with the architects, engineers and the building committee."
Construction of the new museum addition is expected to begin Spring 2007 and be completed by early 2010.
