Borough-based firm lands coronavirus protection contract at Navy Yard

Company expected to provide comprehensive temperature screening and ancillary coronavirus disinfecting services for at least six NSWC buildings.

The Department of Defense, Philadelphia Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC,) again selected Haddonfield-based Grant Integrative Facilities Management (Grant) to provide coronavirus mitigation and elimination services at several facilities in the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

With an office on Kings Highway, the firm is owned and operated by Haddonfield resident Jim Patrick Grant and his father James N. Grant. For this contract, the company will provide
comprehensive temperature screening and ancillary coronavirus disinfecting services for at least six NSWC buildings.

“Earning the respect and trust of our clients is Priority No. 1 and being selected for repeat
assignments is the surest confirmation of that success,” said James N. Grant. “As the world
continues fighting this pandemic, our firm takes great pride in providing the best solutions to ensure the health and safety of the men and women entering the facilities at the Navy Yard.”

The NSWC is preventing the spread of coronavirus infections by monitoring all personnel
entering its facilities do not have high temperatures, which is an indicative symptom of COVID-19.

Grant has established designated enclosures to conduct state-of-the-art, contactless
temperature-screening processes during weekday and weekend hours. In addition, Grant’s
professionals are providing CDC-certified cleaning and disinfection services. Grant is also
providing the Navy with all the equipment, disinfecting chemicals, and personnel protective
equipment (PPE) needed for this 7-days-a-week assignment.

“By having the PPE, equipment, and cleaning chemicals in house, we have been able to respond to numerous clients’ needs immediately,” Grant said.

“Whether it’s a mission-critical agency, like the Navy or a sewer authority, a private business looking to keep their employees safe, or an institution of learning providing safe learning spaces for its students, staff, and faculty, our firm has been able to tailor our services to deliver effective, efficient, and cost-conscious services, while also ensuring the virus is eliminated with a CDC-certified cleaning agent.”
