Construction - Gibson Medical Center
Weil Construction was selected to partner with US Army Corps of Engineers to undertake emergency construction of 90,000 SF on five floors of the old Gibson Medical Center in Albuquerque, NM, to create emergency care facility for Corona Virus patients in just 14 days. This emergency construction involved conversion of 13 rooms to accommodate acute-infectious COVID-19 patients.
The facility was occupied by multiple tenants during construction. Weil Construction partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to develop a plan to seal off and contain all construction work. Construction traffic, lay down and staging areas were coordinated with building management and tenants.

“The on-site management by Weil Construction was exceptional. They were organized, coordinated thoroughly with their subcontractor and USACE, easy to work with, understanding of the concerns and priorities, and ultimately made this project a success. Even though the project was tolling on everyone, they made sure everything was in place and proper direction was given from the very start until the very end. It was very apparent that this project was a priority to Weil Construction and they resonated that status level down through their subcontractors. The contractor was working 24 hour days, 7 days a week in order to complete the work within this much required timeframe. This is a true testament to their hard work and dedication..”
