Anchorage, Alaska-basedgeneral contractor Neeser Construction recently broke ground onAlaska’s Goose Creek Corrections Center. The $240 million project, located near Point MacKenzie, Alaska, is the largest building construction project for the state in recent history. The 435,000-square-foot medium-security facility will house more than 1,500 inmates and is scheduled to be completed in late 2011. The project is expected to create about 700 construction jobs and approximately 400 full-time jobs once construction is complete.
Representatives for Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based Wacker Neuson, including Todd Christifulli, national sales manager, and Dan Sheridan, metro jobsite specialist, attended the ground breaking ceremony.
“Wacker Neuson is excited to be part of this project,” said Christifulli. “Neeser Construction expects to use a large variety of Wacker Neuson construction equipment on the job. A mobile generator will be powering the jobsite trailer and a wide range of Wacker Neuson products will be used throughout the entire construction process.”
Wacker Neuson manufactures a complete line of light, compact and climate control equipment for all phases of the construction process. Many of its products, including mobile generators and heaters, are designed to withstand the harsh winters of Alaska, making it well suited for this project.
