CM3 Awarded COSTARS-34 Auditorium Contract by Pennsylvania Department of General Services

Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. June 2023 – CM3 Building Solutions, Inc. was recently awarded the COSTARS-34 Auditorium Contract by Pennsylvania’s Department of General Services (DGS).

The contract award enables CM3 to provide auditorium supplies and services under the COSTARS program.

COSTARS is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s cooperative purchasing program and serves as a conduit through which registered and eligible local public procurement units and state-affiliated entities can leverage contracts established by DGS to cost-effectively and efficiently identify suppliers with whom to do business.

CM3 has designed and implemented facility modernization solutions, such as auditorium renovations, for school districts throughout Pennsylvania for nearly twenty years. Additionally, the company holds COSTARS awards for maintenance, repair and operation equipment (COSTARS-8) and for security, surveillance, and fire alarm systems (COSTARS-40).

“From classrooms and cafeterias to auditoriums and athletic facilities, the CM3 Performance Contracting Group has been providing infrastructure improvement solutions to school districts for two decades” states John Hollister, Executive Vice President of CM3 Building Solutions. “Adding the COSTARS-34 award is a continuation of our commitment to deliver cost-effective solutions to the school district community, and we are excited to expand our participation in this important program.”

The COSTARS-34 award encompasses all the products required for a comprehensive renovation, such as seating, lighting, stage curtains, podiums, and audio/visual equipment.

“In our experience, an auditorium renovation has a significant impact both within and beyond the school,” notes Hollister. “For many districts, the auditorium is an educational and artistic space, a centerpiece for school spirit, a gathering place for the whole community. This makes our work even more meaningful.”
