Description: Robins & Morton’s engagement with the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) is the longest running building program in Robins & Morton’s 64-year history. When completed in 2010, the 13-year building program will include 50 new public health facilities in 48 of the state’s 67 counties, totaling more than $86 million. The facilities provide a variety of services to the communities involved, including health clinics, home health, and environmental health (restaurant inspections, septic tank permitting, etc.). In addition to the 50 public health facilities, the building program also includes the construction of a central warehouse in Montgomery which serves ADPH facilities across the state. Additions made to the central lab in the capital city included a bioterrorism lab and a chemical lab. These additions were funded from federal grants resulting from Homeland Security appropriations. As construction manager to ADPH, Robins & Morton manages all aspects of this massive building program: budgeting, land selection, architect and contractor selection, management of contractor bidding, and many other aspects.
