Building the first privately-financed LEED-certified building in the heart of the Rogue Valley presented a unique set of challenges, and required a very detailed set of processes to meet the LEED requirements. To help facilitate that process, Corey Vitus of Vitus Construction depended on RedBuilt™ to provide quality products and top-notch support.
At 34,000 square feet, the Gilbert Park Professional Center in Grants Pass, Oregon is a two-story Class-A medical office building that houses five tenant suites and shared conference room space.
“It was a dream job to work on” said Vitus. “We had plenty of room to work and good access everywhere. It was just one of those fun jobs to work on.” And given the challenges involved with LEED certification, “dream job” is high praise indeed.
Vitus also spoke highly of his experience working with RedBuilt™. “They are very professional in everything they do. They simplify the process – all the way down to making sure that each component is correctly marked and labeled, and include great instructions. Also, since they take care of all of the processing, there was very little waste and we didn’t have to modify any parts.”
The Gilbert Park Professional Center included a range of RedBuilt™ products – from Red-L™ Open-Web trusses in the roof and Red-W™ Open-Web trusses in the floor to Red-I45™ joists and RedLam™ LVL throughout the building.
And to help make sure the entire process went as smoothly as possible, Vitus relied on his RedBuilt™ Technical Sales Rep. “He was absolutely wonderful,” he said. “He ensured that the entire RedBuilt team took care of us, and coordinated the total effort from the draftsman on up.”
Vitus, and others involved with the Gilbert Park project are looking forward to working with RedBuilt™, and using RedBuilt™ products again on projects in the future.
