Gilbane Building Company CEO Mike McKelvy notes that COVID-19 is not the first pandemic that his company has faced.
Founded in 1870, Gilbane was in operation during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 to 1920. Now, the contractor is expanding its corporate presence in Boston, where it has worked since 1946. Projects underway in the area include the 225 Wyman Street office and lab development, pictured above.
Both McKelvy and newly appointed executive vice president Daniel M. Gilbane have relocated to the Boston office, located in the city’s Seaport neighborhood, in a move to bolster the firm’s presence there, the company announced. Executive vice president Ryan E. Hutchins is already located there.
