Dagen Trucking of Castleton, New York, will lease a new 45,000-square-foot warehouse at the Port of Albany, capable of handling turbines and generators weighing in excess of 1.2 million pounds.

Port general manager Rich Hendrick said Jeff Dagen, owner of the logistics and hauling company, will pay $450,000 a year for 10 years. The lease includes the possibility for two five-year extensions. The warehouse is designed to support up to 2,000 pounds per square foot, which is two to four times more capacity than most buildings at the port.

“This agreement is great for the port and for Jeff,” Hendrick said. “It gives him the ability to take on more heavy lift work, which is his specialty.”

The lease also eliminates uncertainty about who will occupy the $8 million-plus warehouse.

“The port dedicated to building it because General Electric was going through some tenuous times and we wanted to do anything we can to entice GE to stay in the area,” Hendrick said.

Since Jersen Construction of Waterford started building late last year, General Electric’s stock price has been cut in half, the manufacturing conglomerate was removed from the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the company abruptly replaced its CEO.

As GE works to reinvent itself and overhaul its balance sheet, the port was approached by Dagen, who was searching for warehouse space.

The lease will give the port additional cash flow as Hendrick and the port commission move forward with other projects to attract more business to the Hudson River port.

The port plans to purchase just under 82 acres in the town of Bethlehem for $5.25 million. Hendrick expects the transaction will close in less than 60 days. The port has been meeting with town officials and planners and is beginning an environmental review of the property to determine what could be developed at the site.

The land would increase the size of the port by about 25 percent. It would give the port more room to lease property to companies searching for warehouse space or developers of large offshore wind farms.

“We are trying to position ourselves [if an influx of offshore wind projects happens] we are shovel ready,” Hendrick said.

Jon Grant‘s new apartment complex in Albany is just about finished.

The developer, GSX Solutions, is made up of a team that includes Jon Grant, an architect and principal of Grant Ventures in Annapolis, Maryland. Jersen Construction of Albany built the project.

Even though the Auden Albany apartments are across the street from the University at Albany, they won’t be restricted to college students.

Construction began in fall 2017 and is expected to be completed by the end of the summer. Residents are already starting to move in, though.

Jersen Construction Group has been awarded a contract for the Albany County Residential Healthcare Facility Renovation and Addition Project.

This new project encompasses both renovations to the existing facility, and new construction of 9 additions. It is a single prime project and is being performed under a PLA.

Our scope of work includes hazardous material abatement, selective building demolition and removals, earthwork, including underground utilities, new access roads, paving and site lighting.

The existing building includes 5 floors of complete renovation and will remain active during construction. A unique facet of this project is the setup and subsequent removal of a temporary cafeteria to service the residents and staff during the renovations to the existing kitchen and dining area.

The 9 additions as part of the project are all single story and will be brought from below grade to the roof and include all concrete, finishes, utilities, and mechanical systems. Mechanical, HVAC, and electrical subcontracts amount to $25,000,000 of the $69,400,000 total contract price.

All of this work will be performed within a 29-month timeframe.

According to Indeed.com’s 2018 of the Best Jobs in the US, not only are construction jobs booming, but many of them are making their debut the best jobs list.

Preconstruction manager (#5), construction estimator (#12), and construction manager (#19) are newcomers. Meanwhile, construction superintendent moved from # 24 on last year’s list to 6th place in 2018, with an overall 122% growth in postings since 2014.

Why so many construction jobs? In a recent post, Indeed Chief Economist Jed Kolko noted that this is part of a wider trend: the construction sector, along with mining, has seen the fastest job growth year over year as of this past December. Construction spending is soaring and three-quarters of employers in the sector reported plans to add staff in 2018.
