Sustainability and Green refer to the designing and maintaining the built environment to in concert with economic and ecological needs.
Federal agencies are required to achieve 30% energy and water reductions by 2015 and zero use of fossil fuel by 2030 with schools and municipalities facing similar requirements.
JOC ( Job Order Contracting ) and SABER ( Air Force equivalent of JOC ) are optimal methods for efficiently planning, bidding, and executing sustainability projects with the funding available from billions of dollars via the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act ( ARRA ).
Many “green” projects, however, suffer from poor planning and costly paperwork/contract documentation and project management issues largely associated with outdated contracting methods.
JOC – Job Order Contracting – offers a remedy for EB (existing buildings) / LEED EB “ green “ renovation projects.
JOC – Job Order Contracting – allows the owner and contractor to work together from the beginning; scoping the project, and developing the plans thru specifications and requirements to completion of the sustainability / green renovation, repair or minor construction project(s), on time and within the approved budget.
If owners decide to go the LEED® certification route, they can review current conditions with contractors and discuss construction concerns and associated remedies to reach established targets – up-front – with a firm fixed price for each delivery order, prior to issuing a notice to proceed.
