Greenland Enterprises has been selected as part of the team to replace a boiler plant for the Altoona, PA Veterans Administration Medical Center. Greenland is teaming with SAW Contracting on the $6.8 million project, which includes demolition of existing structures and replacing the boiler, steam piping, boiler plant controls fuel oil and natural gas piping, feed water pumps and other auxiliary systems.
The project scope includes operating temporary boilers and generators to allow for continuous steam delivery to the medical center during construction. “This type of project is exactly what we do,” said Greenland President Elton Roller. “We have developed a great reputation for delivering on time and on budget, and we look forward to teaming with SAW Contracting on this boiler plant project.”
The bid award was finalized after the VA and other federal agencies conducted a detailed bid evaluation. “This is a best-source contract,” explained Roller. “The agencies evaluated the SAW – Greenland partnership and prime-sub agreement and agreed we are the ‘best value’ option for the award.” He added that the agency choose the SAW/Greenland bid, even though the price was nearly $750,000 higher than the competition, based on the overall value and experience and superior qualifications for this technical project.
SAW Contracting is the primary contractor on the project, and has significant experience with traditional commercial and government building construction, while Greenland brings more specialized expertise in design-build of central utility plants, combined heat and power plants, and modular chilled water systems.
