Federal Division Grows Staff and Projects 

Our Federal Division focuses on supporting the United States government and continues to grow with the addition of new team members and projects. Jeff Cohen is transitioning to a new role working with CarolinaPower and MetroPower’s federal groups in Columbus, Warner Robins, and the Florida Panhandle. Cohen will be procuring new work including design-build opportunities and training new engineers.

Several key projects for the Federal Division also were acquired recently, including:

  • Robins Air Force Base – Consolidated Mission Complex Phase 2 and Building 125 – High Bay Lighting
  • Ft. Benning – Building 399 and Building 5500
  • VA National Cemetery

“We are very excited about this opportunity and growth,” said Larry Christopher, Federal Division Manager, who oversees branch 4 and branch 12. “We are actively recruiting to ensure superior performance and support for our field forces.”
