CLEVELAND — The Garland Company announced it has received a contract from Vizient, the nation’s largest member-driven healthcare improvement company. The contract took effect June 1, 2022.

The Garland Company’s high-performance roofing systems and full-service approach is delivered through nearly 200 roofing experts nationwide and its Design-Build Solutions subsidiary (DBS). Together, the Garland/DBS team allows clients to achieve a lower total lifecycle cost for their roofing and waterproofing needs with an unparalleled combination of premium building envelope products and turnkey project management support.

“The Garland product portfolio is ideally suited to meet the needs of healthcare providers,” said Matt McDermott, president of Garland’s U.S. Roofing Division. “Whether it’s low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) products that minimize disruption of a project, environmentally preferred products that help meet sustainability goals, or the industry’s strongest membranes that will deliver a safe and watertight interior for decades, Garland can meet a healthcare facility’s needs — today and for the life of the building.”

By connecting a local roofing professional directly with the building owner, architect and certified contractor, Garland’s full-service process shortens the chain of liability, reducing change orders and finger pointing that can take place in a standard construction project. For complex roofs or multiple facilities, the service goes even further with complete turnkey project management.  

“With the consolidation that has taken place in healthcare over the past several decades, hospital systems and facility administrators are challenged to manage a growing array of buildings with roofs in varying stages of life," said Brian Lambert, general manager, Garland/DBS. "The Design-Build Solutions team provides turnkey project management and transparent online tools to help make informed decisions that keep in mind budget, available resources, and most importantly, the safety and comfort of the patients, staff, and visitors in each building they manage.”
