Garland Receives Vizient Contract
Roofing manufacturer and building envelope solution provider The Garland Company, Inc. (Cleveland) recently announced via emailed press release that it received a contract from the nation’s largest member-driven healthcare improvement company, Vizient.
The contract for roofing systems and building envelope solutions officially took effect on June 1.
“The Garland product portfolio is ideally suited to meet the needs of healthcare providers,” said Matt McDermott, President of Garland’s U.S. Roofing Division. “Whether it’s low-VOC products that minimize disruption of a project, environmentally preferred products that help meet sustainability goals, or the industry’s strongest membranes that will deliver a safe and watertight interior for decades, Garland can meet a healthcare facility’s needs — today and for the life of the building.”
The Garland Company’s roofing systems and full-service approach are delivered through nearly 200 roofing experts nationwide and its Design-Build Solutions subsidiary (DBS). Together, the Garland/DBS team allows clients to achieve a lower total lifecycle cost for their roofing and waterproofing needs with a combination of building envelope products and project management support.
Brian Lambert, General Manager, Garland/DBS, added, “With the consolidation that has taken place in healthcare over the past several decades, hospital systems and facility administrators are challenged to manage a growing array of buildings with roofs in varying stages of life. The Design-Build Solutions team provides turnkey project management and transparent online tools to help make informed decisions that keep in mind budget, available resources, and most importantly, the safety and comfort of the patients, staff, and visitors in each building they manage.”
