Providence, Rhode Island – June 9, 2015 – Gilbane Building Company has announced it has been named a 2014 Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) Supplier of Distinction Award recipient. The Award was presented to Gilbane by Denver Clark, JLL’s Chief Procurement Officer at JLL’s Management Conference in Scottsdale, AZ.
Supplier of Distinction (SODA) award recipients are selected from a pool of a hundred supplier partners by JLL’s Strategic Sourcing Board through a comprehensive evaluation process.
The SODA Program was developed to recognize partners and industry leaders for helping to deliver the highest caliber of service, value and innovation to JLL clients,” notes Rachel DePalma, SRM Program Manager. “Our Supplier Partners, including Gilbane, play an integral role in helping us deliver exceptional service to our clients. In turn, we will continue to recognize our top performers and challenge all of our suppliers to continuously improve service, add value and innovate.”
In 2014, a JLL client tasked them with an 87 branch, multi-state refresh project with a short six-week completion deadline. “With Gilbane’s staffing, resources and geographical reach, we were able secure competitive sub-contractor pricing and start a dozen projects at the same time, all on fast track basis,” notes Jim Busam, Vice President, National Client Team. “Through collaborative efforts, we supported JLL in identifying projects risks and took the time to scrub each project charter and perform site surveys in one weeks’ time. We were able to tap into a broad sub-contractor base with many minority businesses, and provide coverage for each region with highly competitive numbers.”
