Key Challenges:

  • Scale of project and urgency of timeline
  • No design plans were in place prior to our involvement in the project
  • No defined list of product/goods requirements existed prior to our project involvement
  • A need for very tight supplier coordination and quality control

Our Approach:

  • Embedded a member of our team in the project to manage all aspects of sourcing and supply
  • Designed and supplied 400 steel-framed pre-engineered buildings
  • Sourced a range of ancillary equipment including tools, generators, and site-perimeter fencing
  • Provided all internal fixtures, fittings, and commodities, from ceiling and flooring material to appliances, bedding, and towels
  • Leveraged our relationships with 35 different Chinese suppliers to ensure a reliable supply of all products
  • Oversaw manufacturing processes and executed quality inspections during and after production
  • Consolidated orders and Coordinated shipping from eight Chinese ports
  • Successfully delivered a total of 45x40HQ shipping containers
  • Assisted the client with site design and utility planning
  • Delivered a training program in building-construction for the local workforce

OutCome:

  • All buildings, equipment, fixtures, fittings, and sundries were supplied on time and to budget
  • Through our economies of scale, we saved the client more than $1 million on the total cost of procurement and supply
