Items of Interest: As is typical of public projects, this was bid on the open market. Loughridge & Co. was the successful bidder, but the project was over the budget. Loughridge & Co. requested that Reames & Moyer provide a Design / Build mechanical proposal to help bring the project within the Owner’s budget. We were able provide a more economical design at a cost savings of 29% as compared to the original mechanical design.
Follow Up: This was a very unique situation in which Reames & Moyer was selected as the Design / Build mechanical contractor for a public project.
(Public projects of this type are awarded on the traditional Design-Bid-Build project delivery method.)
