Large Router Base - Fabrication and Machining Recommendations

I am currently working on a project that will require a large router table for a custom application. Current envelope is 8' x 12' with a low clearance gantry(3" - 6"). With added equipment on the ends of the x travel the overall foot print of the base is looking to be about 18' long and 10' wide. This is outside of our capacities so we would like to explore having someone fabricate and machine the base. Ideally finished on a double column mill or large HBM that can do all 5 sides at once, which would make our assembly process much easier. Does anyone have recommendations for shops with the equipment and expertise to get this done?
