Ballou Athletic Field – Bleachers and Pressbox Documentation


Friday, June 17, 2016

The Department of General Services has a need to furnish and install the Bleachers Systems and Pressbox at Ballou Athletic Field.

Kadcon Corporation was tasked after a competitive selection process with providing design build services for the athletic field and site improvements. The bleachers were identified as long lead item and were procured under a previous General Contractor (GC). DGS has been unable to resolve dispute with the previous GC nor obtain the bleachers, therefore this procurement is to request Kadcon to continue with the work associated with this procurement to avoid major project delays. The previous GC has already procured and fabricated the bleachers which are currently being stored in a maintenance warehouse in Texas. Since the
bleachers are a long lead procurement DGS would be purchasing the bleachers from Kadcon and not from the previous GC. Kadcon, having been awarded the contract to complete the athletic field, is uniquely positioned to obtain the bleachers and ensure the project schedule is maintained.
