Q&D Construction, a Reno-based contractor, will lead construction on the Heroes Memorial Building renovation project in Carson City, the Elko County Osino Interchange and the new emergency department and covered connector at the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, and will co-lead the construction of a terminal expansion at Glacier Park International Airport in Kalispell, Mont.
“As an industry leader in general contracting for over 55 years, we provide a high standard of excellence on all of our projects,” said Q&D President Lance Semenko. “We are honored to oversee vital projects that benefit the northern Nevada and Kalispell communities.”
Q&D has been selected as a co-construction manager for the development of the Glacier Park International Airport passenger terminal expansion alongside Kalispell-based Swank Enterprises. Over the next 3 years, Q&D and Swank will work together to triple the size of the airport and create more gates, larger shopping areas and dining options, holding rooms and an enhanced meet-and-greet area. The firms will also work to expand the airport’s security checkpoint area to reduce passenger wait times and improve overall passenger experience. The $100 million project will bring planning and construction together, while minimizing airport delays during the process.
Down in Carson City, Q&D was selected as the construction-manager-at-risk for the Heroes Memorial Building Renovation project. The $11 million renovation project scope includes completing the programming and schematic design for seismic strengthening and a major remodel of the building and annex. The building was designed in 1921 as a memorial to Nevada soldiers of World War I and is currently used as an office for the Attorney General, while the annex was constructed in 1951 and is currently in use by a local veteran’s group.
Heading east to Elko County, Q&D will remove existing roadway on Interstate 80 at the Osino Interchange. Nearly 11 miles of new asphalt will be placed on the highway under contract with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). Q&D will manufacture and supply rock and asphalt material from its own aggregate plant, setup at the Maggie Creek Ranch aggregate pit west of Elko. Aggregate production was completed late last year, and Roadway reconstruction started in mid-February.
Q&D is also building a new 35,000-square-foot emergency department and laboratory expansion at the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, along with a connector building between the hospital and the existing surgery center. Crews recently completed the emergency department and surgery center parking, while building demo, emergency department, surgery center and lab area work continues. Q&D is working alongside the hospital to keep the facility fully operating and in business-as-usual condition during construction. The project is scheduled to be completed in March 2021.
