Building from the Ground Up
Pre-Engineered Buildings category offers variety of customized options
Pre-engineered buildings are a great alternative to traditional building methods, saving both time and money. In this category, the buildings are built from components engineered in advance, and standardized–saving on design, production, and assembly time.
Public agencies can be assured they’re building on a strong foundation, as well as benefitting from shortened construction time, by using pre-fabricated structures.
Sourcewell recently awarded two contracts in the ‘Pre-Engineered Buildings’ category, adding to its diverse line of options and vendors.
Sourcewell Contract Administrator Corey Jensen says the category and its solutions will benefit end users with reduced design and construction time over traditional construction without compromising strength and durability.
“Pre-engineered buildings are a great alternative to traditional building methods, saving both time and money,” Jensen explains. “In this category, the buildings are built from components engineered in advance, and standardized–saving on design, production, and assembly time.”
