Scott-Long Construction takes on VA industrial/warehouse project

Washington Construction News staff writer

Contractor Scott-Long Construction says it is partnering with architect John F. Heitzel in a relocation project for Ferguson Fire & Fabrication in Springfield, VA.

In a March 13 statement, Chantilly, VA, based Scott-Long says it has worked on various types of Washington DC Metro commercial construction projects since its founding in 1961.  The Ferguson relocation represents an expansion of its work to the industrial and warehouse sector.

Ferguson Fire & Fabrication is the nation’s largest supplier of fire protection supplies. They also provide complete fabrication services for fire professionals. The relocation will allow them more space for their fire protection supplies and to offer their fire protection services.

“We love to partner with companies that are giving back and making positive contributions to the world, which is exactly what Ferguson Fire & Fabrication is doing,” Scott-Long CEO John Scott said. “It’s also a wonderful way for us to add to our portfolio of industrial and warehouse projects. Our team is excited about this market and look forward to even more projects in the industrial and warehouse sector.”

Construction in different sectors and industries requires different kinds of considerations. Being a successful builder for a business in need of a warehouse/industrial type facility requires using certain types of materials whether that be steel or metal. According to PN Project Management, about 80 percent of the overall costs for a warehouse are construction related. Warehouses also tend to be large to allow for a good amount of storage space.

The contractor expects the project will be completed in March 2024. The statement did not provide the project’s construction value.
