Primary Framing, VP Command, and Value Engineering July 12, 2016 online Stephen Hudak

Please join Stephen Hudak and he digs into VP's Primary Framing and VP Command to show you many ways to save money!

Primary Framing is one of the largest cost items on a VP building. Hudak will show you ways to save money. A CB-3 with 50-50-50 interior column spacing may be fine, but did you know that 45-60-45 may be even better? Is a higher or lower roof pitch better in certain conditions? The answer is YES!, but it can depend on your frame types.

VP Command can quickly give you the best options.  Learn how to take advantage of it!

This short 45-minute webinar can save you BIG MONEY!

NJPA (National Joint Power Alliance) July 19, 2016 online Brian Aldrich and Others

VP Builders pursuing projects in the public sector are finding success in teaming with BlueScope Construction to secure opportunities through their National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) Contract. The NJPA is a government service agency that brings buyers and suppliers together.

By teaming with BlueScope Construction Services (BSC), VP Builders can leverage local governments and relationships with other NJPA members in their markets by saving them time and money in fulfilling their facility needs for both new construction and renovation projects.

NJPA supports member agencies throughout the United States and Canada. Member agencies include all levels of local, county and state government, and public and private school boards, along with community non-profit organizations such as volunteer fire departments. NJPA members purchase our products and services without going through the normal bid procurement process because the NJPA has already vetted the suppliers and have satisfied the typical competition requirement. As an NJPA member, these customers take advantage of purchasing factory direct as a “best value” solution.
