Gilbane Receives Two Awards

Glastonbury, CT – Gilbane Building Company was recently honored by the Connecticut Building Congress (CBC) with a first-place Project Team Award in the New Construction category for the Hartford Hospital Bone and Joint Institute project in Hartford. Gilbane was also recognized with an award of merit in the K-12 Schools category for the Francis T. Maloney High School in Meriden.

The award-winning project team

Hartford Hospital’s Bone and Joint Institute is the first dedicated orthopedic specialty hospital in New England and one of only a few like facilities nationwide.

The Francis T. Maloney High School project encompassed the renovation, addition, and selective demolition of an existing high school into a state-of-the-art, like-new 283,000sf high school.


The new, 150,000sf Hartford Hospital’s Bone and Joint Institute provides state-of-the-art coordinated care that integrates all elements of orthopedics and musculoskeletal treatment, including primary and specialty care, diagnostics, rehabilitation, rheumatology, neurology, and pain management. The building consists of five floors and features: eight operating rooms with room to expand to 10; 48 inpatient beds with the capability of expanding to 60 beds; a post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) featuring 27 beds; complete imaging center including radiology, MRI, and CT scans; rehabilitation facilities; a Motion Laboratory Study Center; a Center for Sports & Fitness; and after-hours orthopedic urgent care services.

The Francis T. Maloney High School was constructed in four major phases over three years to allow the school to remain open and occupied during construction. Fully renovated areas include two full gymnasiums with locker rooms, natatorium, 950 seat auditorium, cafeteria, and kitchen. Additions included a state-of-the-art classroom wing, media center and musical wing. The finished school embodies Meriden Public Schools’ vision of providing a “modern, first class student-centered learning environment.”
