Sprung structure(click to view full) Aptly-named mall business qualifier Sprung Inc. in West Jordan, UT won an $8.6 million firm-fixed-price contract for sprung structures to be used in support of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle Program. You might think this means vehicle springs, or something like that. No – these are a form of relocatable, semi-rigid “instant buildings”. The firm has come a long way since 1887, when it made chuck wagon covers & tepees… OK, maybe it hasn’t. Still, a product that has been used as a Utah church can surely help a program whose vehicles may be one of the few places one finds more fervent prayer. Work will be performed in Iraq, and is expected to be completed by Dec. 25, 2007. Bids were solicited via the World Wide Web on Oct. 13, 2007, and 8 bids were received by the Joint Contracting Command-Iraq/Afghanistan jn Baghdad, Iraq (W91GDW-08-M-0003).
