"I would like to emphasize to other municipality leadership to make it a team effort. Across the board this was a team effort," said Jean Krack, fifteen-year borough manager for the Borough of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. "Sourcewell came to the table and allowed us to stay under the timeframe that we were under and under the budget. I don't know if that would have happened with another entity; they made it happen. Both projects, the recreation center and fire station, came within the budget. I'm very glad to say the projects came in on time and on budget."

Deputy Director for Operations, City of Urbana Department of Public Works, Vince Gustafson said, "Through the design-build process with BlueScope Construction, we were able to maximize our specific needs to our project budget, and ended up with as much square footage and under-roof space as we possibly could." Gustafson added, "Had we followed a traditional procurement process, it could've easily added six-to-eight months before we would've had a contract in-hand."
