“Do what you know best; if you’re a runner, run, if you’re a bell, ring”. Ignas Bernstein is credited with this quote and if you think about it sensibly, you can understand why we are a firm advocate of the 'one stop shop' approach.
Many companies often take on large projects to extend their facilities, add production or streamline their operations. This will typically involve the employment of a variety of planning, ordering, suppliers, and execution to achieve the eventual aim. We find that in many cases the multitude of tasks are performed by one person or a group of people who all find their usual worktime totally consumed by the 'project', rather than concentrating on what they actually do best and are really employed for.
But fear not, there is another way. By engaging a project team or a company that specialises in managing large projects you will actually find that the stresses, strains and often expensive mistakes can be eliminated completely.
Once you find a supplier or a partner that can supply the many skills that you require, then you can step back and let them co-ordinate the trades, skills and installations that you require. The initial process can be one where you can involve yourself to the exact degree that you want to. The scope of works or 'brief' can be outlined and agreed with your project team and this will form the bedrock of attaining the eventual aim for your business.
A project team are responsible for any work carried out on a customer’s premises. Typically, the project team will organise the fulfilment of contracts for steel structural work, on site welding, installations including mezzanine floors and office partitioning, refurbishments and storage/handling systems that include racking, shelving, conveyors and automated equipment.
- A project manager will be appointed to work with customers, to ensure complete satisfaction.
- The team can also arrange and monitor permanent or temporary onsite maintenance contracts that can include full mechanical and electrical facilities.
- A project can include the co-ordination of a multitude of varying requirements so that customers can enjoy the benefits of a ‘one stop shop’ approach to a large contract.
Action Handling Equipment have been used to this type of 'partnering' for over 50 years and are happy to work in tandem with other contractors or manage the whole contract on a customer’s behalf.
