Following our news last week about two teams winning GSA contracts, we were notified of more winners. Quantapoint was awarded a five-year, $30 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract for nationwide 3D laser scanning services. Quantapoint and its partners will provide laser scanning and related services for all GSA regions of the United States in support of Building Information Modeling (BIM), building modifications and performance upgrades such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Quantapoint has executed more than 1,400 laser scanning projects over 18 years in facilities ranging from historic structures and multi-story office buildings to refineries, nuclear power plants and offshore platforms. The company has also created multiple generations of laser scanner hardware and viewing and analysis software that have been used for projects around the world. In a statement, Quantapoint Founder Eric Hoffman said, “Quantapoint originally developed the concept of 360-degree laser scanning to support the documentation of public buildings, so we are pleased that the GSA has decided to adopt laser scanning as an effective and accurate method of developing BIM for renovation and restoration projects.”
Quantapoint’s laser scanning IDIQ team includes Martinez+Johnson Architecture, EMO Energy Solutions, Rolf Jensen & Associates, Protection Engineering Group, AMT Engineering, Hinman Consulting Engineers, Arnold Animations and Certainty3D.
Woman-owned small business Kristine Fallon Associates, Inc. (KFA) also won a five-year contract for BIM and Related Professional Services that covers GSA Zone B (Southeast-Sunbelt Region 4, Great Lakes Region 5, Heartland Region 6, and Greater Southwest Region 7). KFA’s involvement in BIM technology dates back a decade when the firm consulted to Revit Technology Corporation before its initial product release; it since has conducted extensive research and analysis of BIM technology. The firm has executed numerous projects using BIM, including two in the GSA 3D-4D-BIM Pilot Program and several hospital projects. This GSA contract will be its first to combine laser scanning services with BIM services.
KFA’s participation in AEC industry standardization initiatives includes President Kristine Fallon’s service on the Board of Direction of the buildingSMART alliance and her contributions to the development of the AIA’s position statements on the National BIM Standard and Interoperability. The team led by KFA consists of Primera Engineers, Ltd., Coast 2 Coast, Faithful+Gould and Solibri, LLC.
