Project Description

Quandel Construction Group was selected by the Pennsylvania’s Department of General Services (DGS) to serve as the Department’s Owner’s Representative on the new 130,000 square foot Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency’s (PEMA) new Emergency Operations Center in Harrisburg.
