January 22, 2008 | Easi-Set Buildings
MIDLAND, Va. – Smith-Midland Corp., manufacturer of the Easi-Set buildings, Announces its involvement in a major Department of Defense project at a secured military facility in the area of Virginia Beach, Virginia.
According to Wayne Smith, Territory Manager for building sales at Smith-Midland, the initial request was for a quote on one structure. It was through subsequent negotiations with the procurement officer on behalf of the purchaser, nine additional 10’ x 12 Easi-Set buildings were purchased. Ongoing communication resulted in the order being increased to a total of 30 buildings. The final value of the order grew from nearly $10,000 to a phenomenal $300,000.
After several meetings and visits to the site, Smith-Midland began to produce the buildings in early October 2007. The last of the 30 modular training units are expected to ship this month. Fifteen of the buildings were Easi-Brick and the remaining fifteen were Broom Finish, all with Canyon-Tone stain.
Smith said that the government agent he was working with was so impressed by the buildings that he is confident that once other government branches see them, Smith-Midland will receive similar requests from government facilities all over the country.
Easi-Set originated the concept of a Transportable Precast Concrete Building. For years, the Easi-Set and Easi-Span Buildings have led the industry as the precast buildings of choice. The patented post-tensioned building system provides even greater weather-tightness and impact resistance for the precast roof and floors.
Easi-Set Buildings provide durability, flexibility, convenience, cost-effectiveness and long lasting security. Easi-Set Buildings are installed in a day, require no foundation and are relocatable. Easi-Setbuildings are used for Storage, as Pump Buildings, for Power Substations, to house Communications Hardware, by Utility Companies, for HazMat Storage, as Restrooms (wet and dry), as Concession Stands, for Classrooms, and many Custom Applications. Where larger buildings are required, Easi-Span provides clear span sizes up to 40′ x 200′.
