Munger Construction Recognized For Excellence In Job Order Contracting
Helps City of Middletown Receive Merit Award For Boat Launch Installation
By: Pat Munger Construction Company, Inc.
For the past nine years Middletown city officials had wanted to expand recreational use of the Coginchaug River, popular with canoers and kayakers. But their efforts to build a boat launch were continually challenged by cost estimates that were significantly higher than their State of Connecticut grant. Applying Gordian's ezIQC solution, Munger worked with city officials to reduce the initial estimate by 60% for a $68,168 savings.
After revising the boat ramp design and substituting materials Munger successfully completed the project just five months after submitting its proposal. "We are proud to have helped the City of Middletown to achieve this long anticipated goal." said David DeMaio, Munger president. "Munger uses ezIQC to competitively position itself as an on-call construction contractor ready to quickly execute projects for public building owners. Instead of bidding project by project, Munger bids on a catalog of construction tasks, each of which has a direct cost, unit of measure and specification."
