In 2008, Q&D began the project that would launch the Aviation Group. “Reno-Tahoe International Airport was our first big partnership in aviation,” says Duane Boreham, VP – Aviation Group. “Today it has a modern security checkpoint, efficient and fast baggage sortation, screening, and claim areas, a thriving expanded retail and concessions space, and updated finishes throughout. A big part of our success working closely with the Airport Authority was the time we spent as a team during preconstruction, using the Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) delivery method to plan and put in place over $70,000,000 worth of work without impacting a single person’s itinerary. We put that expertise and specialized understanding of the client’s goals in practice every day now, at hundreds of airports around the U.S.”
In 2014, Q&D celebrated our 50th anniversary, stronger than ever. “At Q&D we work with you to reach your goals and fulfill your needs,” says Norm, “knowing that the purpose of construction isn’t to build a road, a house or a building. It is for you to build a business, a lifestyle, a home or to improve a place for the public good.” Also in 2014, Norm retired from Q&D to enjoy more personal time with his family and friends.
In 2015, Q&D added the Specialty Services department to provide demolition, sawing, interior excavation, saw and seal, grooving and grinding, and concrete rehabilitation service directly to clients and as a subcontractor to other general contractors.
In 2017, Q&D started their Energy Group, with a focus on providing excellent service to clients on pipelines and energy generation facilities.
