The difficulty this business was facing was scheduling its team of subcontractors across multiple complex projects in numerous locations.
They are specialists who supply and install access floors – the false floors that create space in commercial buildings for cabling, ducting and other utilities. Many projects are simple but others are large, multi-phase building projects tightly managed by a main contractor such as Kier Group or Balfour Beatty. Typically several floors will need to be installed in stages a few weeks apart, fitting into a tight construction schedule involving many other trades.
Scheduling multiple teams of subcontractors across multiple locations and tight schedules is a complex logistical challenge, and it becomes exponentially harder the more work the business takes on. But they can’t afford to slip up. Failure to deliver on a large project damages both finances and reputation.
