Celebrating 2018 and Wishing all a Happy New Year

There was much to celebrate in 2018 during our firm’s 10-year Anniversary.  This year provided an opportunity to continue to work with valued clients and partners, as well as bring about some new relationships. Semper Tek increased our Design-Build portfolio of work significantly this year and landed our company’s first single award job order contract.

However, most importantly were the continued relationships and opportunities for recognition that we were able to share with our employees. Semper Tek is extremely fortunate to have some of the best employees in the industry, bar none!  We have grown our family a lot this year and brought in some incredible talent in each area of operation, including administrative, pre-construction, and operations/execution. We had numerous employees go above and beyond on their duties, earning Bulldog Awards, our firm’s internal recognition.  Here are some of our most recent awardees:STI Bulldog Award

On Tuesday, December 11 the Department of Veterans Affairs, US Army Corps of Engineer Louisville District and Semper Tek participated in the official groundbreaking ceremony for the VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic building at Fort Knox. The clinic will serve Veterans with health screenings, mental health services, outpatient procedures, and more. The project completion is anticipated Spring 2020.

Semper Tek is the General Contractor for this Design-Build project. Our design partners are American Structurepoint and CMTA. The design of the building is nearing completion and construction is anticipated to begin in January 2019.

Semper Tek is proud to be able to serve the many Veterans who will receive much-deserved care at this facility by our efforts to design and build this project. Our knowledge that the men and women who have sacrificed so much through their military service can have access to receive the care they need at this building is the driving force leading our team on this project. We are excited to begin and look forward to providing the best quality product as quickly as possible so that our nation’s heroes here in Kentucky can be served.
