Astra Group, a division under the Equix umbrella of companies, performs general contracting services to complete a wide variety of projects across multiple industries ranging from $1 million to $120 million.
Astra Construction Services (ACS), a subsidiary of Astra Group, is a job order contractor that specializes in building renovations (interior and exterior), park and recreation, utility task order contracts, job order contracts and hard bids for design-bid-build or design-build projects.
Projects range from everyday construction to extremely complex multi-phased efforts. Several of our projects filter through our JOC programs in Georgia and Florida. Examples are:
JOC is a contract for a fixed term and/or a maximum dollar amount to complete job or task orders. It is a proven construction procurement process that is ideal for renovation and alteration work–responding quickly to emergencies, addressing a backlog of deferred repairs and straightforward new construction.
Instead of dealing with the time and expense of bidding projects separately, a municipality can use the statewide JOC contract, which has already been competitively awarded, to allow contractors to respond quickly and begin construction faster
JOC can do it all or as little as needed. A JOC contractor has satisfied the state-mandated bid process; therefore, state agencies that use this contracting method can bypass the competitive bid process and procure directly with the JOC contractor of their choice.
