A national building company has relocated one of its offices from Laurel to Baltimore, its vice president said Monday.
The Gilbane Building Co. has worked on projects including at the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Discovery World Science and Technology Center in Milwaukee, Wis., and the Kent State College of Architecture and Environmental Design in Ohio. Based in Providence, R.I., the builder has about 100 employees in Maryland, including in offices in Hagerstown, Salisbury and Annapolis, vice president Michael Crase said. There are about 50 employees in the Baltimore location.
The company wants to locate as many of its offices in or close to cities as possible, Crase said.
"We already had a D.C. presence, so when our lease expired in Laurel, it was natural for us to move to Baltimore," he said.
Gilbane leased 12,000 square feet of space at 1215 E. Fort Ave, the former Phillips Seafood building. They finished the move in December, Crase said.
"We wanted to participate in the growth of the city and have an office to recruit young talent to join us," Crase said.
