Sourcewell Awards Pre-Engineered Buildings Contract to BlueScope Construction
BlueScope Construction announces a second consecutive Sourcewell contract in the pre-engineered building category. As the top-scoring respondent, BlueScope Construction earned the new four-year contract during a recent competitive solicitation process. BlueScope Construction’s response included considerations such as pricing, customer service, and warranties.
Sourcewell, formerly National Joint Powers Association, is a leading government agency specializing in cooperative purchasing. As procurement experts, Sourcewell has awarded more than 325 competitively solicited contracts to companies on behalf of their 67,000 public-agency members, which include government, education and nonprofit entities.
“We are extremely proud that the value of BlueScope Construction was reflected in receiving the highest-scoring response to the RFP,” said Brian Aldrich, director of Government Services at BlueScope Construction. “Cooperative purchasing is the best means of ensuring agencies and their constituents receive the best value for their money. Sourcewell’s dedication to serving their member’s needs aligns with our core value, customer satisfaction. If there is an issue, a building owner only has to go to one contact for a solution. We have created this unique execution model based upon our General Services Administration Contract, of which we have successfully completed over 1,100 design-build solutions without litigation, termination or liquidated damages. Our partnership is poised and committed for continued success that will greatly benefit Sourcewell members and their communities for all their facility needs.”
BlueScope Construction is the only design-build contractor and manufacturer to be awarded a Sourcewell contract, which encompasses turnkey, design-build services, material-erect solutions, site preparation, and installation services, for both new facility construction and renovation. BlueScope Construction has an affiliation with over 2,000 contractors throughout the United States and Canada, ensuring the work is performed by local designers, subcontractors, and vendors.
“This contract helps public government and education agencies more easily procure the buildings they need for their facilities, whether they are building new or expanding an existing facility. They also get peace of mind knowing they are working with a Sourcewell-vetted company,” said Corey Jensen, contract administrator at Sourcewell.
Previous BlueScope Construction projects for Sourcewell members include administrative buildings, aircraft hangars, community fitness centers and indoor practice facilities, maintenance and storage facilities, police and fire stations, health care facilities, and schools.
