Gilbane Cares: Incident and Injury Free Culture
“Gilbane Cares” means the safety of everyone on its project sites is the number one priority. Gilbane has developed award-winning programs to protect the health and safety of every single person on its sites with a significant investment made in training employees and partners in JMJ Associate’s Incident and Injury Free (IIF) methods. Gilbane has been honored by the Associated General Contractors, Construction Users Roundtable and others as one of the safest companies in the construction industry.
Commitment to Sustainability
Gilbane’s commitment to sustainability is underpinned by its corporate social responsibility and core values. In its offices and on its projects, Gilbane is dedicated to eliminating waste, reducing pollution, promoting recycling, utilizing repurposed materials, and increasing energy efficiency to reduce its carbon footprint.
Diversity and Inclusion
Gilbane’s commitment to economic inclusion and equal opportunity extends beyond policy. It’s embedded into the culture and part of everything Gilbane does, from hiring practices and internal employee training initiatives, to engagement with local business communities in the places in which it works, lives and builds.
As part of this commitment to inclusionary business practices, Gilbane encourages woman-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, and small business participation on all projects – regardless of funding requirements. To reinforce this, Gilbane has established a 20% companywide small and diverse participation goal.
One expression of this commitment is the establishment of Gilbane’s Employee Resource Groups (ERG), which allow employees to join as either active members or supportive allies.
Collaboration Inherent in the Processes
From the start, Gilbane partners with its clients to meet their goals, design intent, budget, quality, and schedule targets. Throughout the planning process, Gilbane brings the right people to the table to provide their valuable input. Every impact of this process is considered, developed, and shared with clients.
Transparency & Cost Certainty
Gilbane prides itself on the reliability of its commitments. This behavior translates in the firm’s history of repeat business as well as consistent procurement of best subcontractor pricing, which is directly passed on to customers. The firm’s practice of Target Value Design ensures that the design is informed by the cost model. In doing so, Gilbane consistently closes holes and bridges gaps ensuring airtight scopes, resulting in greatly reduced contingencies allowing funds to be optimized and work for clients rather than sit in a contingency fund.
