Bay Area Projects Ready to Go: Signs of Life Appear
Construction companies are making due by broadening into sectors they never focused on previously. Swinerton has scooped up an increasing number of healthcare jobs as well as Indian casinos and solar power jobs, according to president Jeffrey Hoopes. Swinerton is doing a $115 million utility plant for Washington Hospital in Fremont and is in the early stages of a new patient tower.
Medical is really interesting market right now,” said Hoopes.
As far as Indian gaming, Swinerton is working on a 250,000-square-foot casino and hotel in Sierra foothills town of Jackson. It is also working on pre-construction for a $200 million expansion of Cache Creek Casino in Sonoma County. And it is working on three other potential casino projects north of San Francisco that have not yet been made public.
Meanwhile, Swinerton was hired to do $100 million in solar facility construction in the past two weeks, including a utility-grade 15 megawatt plant in southern Oregon.
