From the Ground Up: General Contracting with East &  Westbrook  

General contracting is the glue that holds an industrial and commercial construction project together. Safety coordination, project timeline management, subcontractor qualification, construction and inspection coordination, insurance coverage, and pivoting as problems arise are all part of the job.

It takes a team with dedication, attention to detail, and a commitment to safety to be a high-quality general contractor. 

Decades of general contracting experience

East & Westbrook has provided general contracting services since the 1990s and has consistently stayed ahead of technological innovations and the most up-to-date techniques in various fields. Those decades of work give East & Westbrook a leg up on other general contractors; they know the ins and outs of both simple and complex jobs and have the agility to pivot to any challenge regarding commercial and industrial construction. 

With a proven record on projects ranging from power generation facilities to manufacturing, warehousing, food and drug processing, petroleum, chemical, and more, East & Westbrook has the experience to get the job done. 

“We’ve been working with East & Westbrook since 2021, and their quality workmanship on our AP3 Expansion project has impressed us. We look for companies who deliver on what they promise, and East & Westbrook has more than met our expectations. Having a general contractor we can trust to do the work safely and on time is important, and we are looking forward to continuing our working relationship as we continue our expansions.”- Mark F, Principle Advanced Manufacturing Engineer
AP3 expansion project: a case study

East & Westbrook worked with multiple subcontractors and their teams on GE’s AP3 Expansion Project in Louisville, KY. This expansion was part of a massive multimillion-dollar investment by GE, bringing 1,000 jobs to Louisville as of 2023.

East & Westbrook was integral in the expansion of the AP3 Dishwasher Plant, the largest plant of its kind in the nation. The concrete work East & Westbrook self-performed complimented the efforts of multiple other teams to create a sophisticated, cutting-edge plant. This expansion demonstrated East & Westbrook’s ability to manage and collaborate with multiple teams.

We can self-perform site work, concrete, steel fabrication, and PEMB erection. Our skilled workforce of 220+ ensures we don’t have the bottlenecks many GCs have with labor constraints.
