When the VA Medical Center (VAMC) in Hampton, VA saw a dramatic increase in their client population they were in need of additional space to accomodate more personnel.
The engineering staff at VAMC developed a remediation plan that called for a 5,040 square foot modular space to serve as patient interview and exam areas, in addition to staff offices. In addition to the floor plan requirements, the bidding was established as a set-aside for Small Business Disadvantaged Veteran Business (SBDV) only. The complexity of the floor plan, in conjunction with the bidding restriction would be a deciding factor in USMGE’s successful bid.
USMGE’s Newport News office bid as a subcontractor to the SBDV prime contractor, American Veteran Construction Company. Utilizing a turnkey solution and hydraulic equipment to place the six modular units, USMGE was able to eliminate the high cost of a crane lift operation. In addition to using cutting edge technology, USMGE also provided the majority of the site service work, which has helped USMGE form a long-term business partnership with American Veteran Construction Company.
“On behalf of everyone at East Baltimore Community School, we would like to commend your firm for the recent completion of our school project. You did and extraordinary job of meeting our schedule even though we had to keep extending the decision-maiking deadline. The first three weeks of the modular installation included steady torrential downpours and you didn't let that stop you from keeping the schedule. You worked with us as we made design changes and helped us meet our budget objectives by assisting with value engineering. Your sub-contractors were uniformly courteous and helpful, particularly during the punch list process. But the most important accomplishment of all was the deliver of a building that provides a safe attractive environment for learning for the students at the School. In early conversations with children about what they liked most about their new school, they said that "the building is new, and it was made just for us." We are sure that you could tell from the students who spoke at the appreciation event, that they are grateful for what they have received and have received it with joy. Everyone who tours the school is amazed at how nice it is and how substantial it feels. People who were skeptical about modular units have become converts.
We look forward to three more expansion phases with you.”
