While others in our industry have focused on becoming multi-trade solution providers, Blouin remains committed to our core business — delivering superior industrial and commercial sheet metal and mechanical contracting solutions.
Many complex and time sensitive projects can benefit by having the sheet metal scope of work sourced as a direct subcontract to the construction manager. This project delivery method is what we at Blouin refer to as ‘Airside Direct’. Blouin works with the construction manager to establish a comprehensive scope of work which includes 3D-Building Information Modeling (BIM), airside purchased equipment and a matrix of field labor activities to align with current industry trade line agreements.
