RLS Construction upgrading part of Harrisburg federal building
Carroll Township-based RLS Construction Group has landed a $200,000 contract to renovate a fifth-floor space in Harrisburg's federal building and courthouse for the U.S. Marshals Service.
RLS will upgrade the space formerly used by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency during the next 60 days, said Robert Schopfer, president and CEO.
The project includes demolition and new build-out of offices, a squad room, storage space and lockers, a kitchenette, special purpose areas and a conference room. The work also includes carpet and flooring replacement, new plumbing and electrical, plus heating, ventilation and air conditioning, upgraded sprinklers, fire alarms, and phone and data systems.
“This is an important project for our federal law enforcement officials,” Schopfer said. “The new space will be a significant enhancement to their operations and their ability to protect our citizens.”
RLS is a veteran-owned general contractor that focuses on government contracts and medical facility work for the Veterans Administration. The company also does commercial and general construction for private-sector clients — primarily in Cumberland, Dauphin and York counties. Much of that work is office and retail space improvements.
