How SavCon Has Overcome Supply Chain Issues in 2022.
October 26, 2022
Supply chain issues resulting from COVID-19 related chaos have plagued the U.S. construction industry for over two years now. Delays on obtaining material have be costly to companies, as many contracts have dates built in when a project must be completed or the builder gets assessed penalties, leading to builders paying higher prices to ensure projects finish on time. SavCon has a deep understanding of lead times and changes in lead times to inform clients of when items, materials, and equipment should be purchased to keep their project on time and under budget.
“It’s more important than ever to think about alternative delivery approaches that encourage early participation of contractors, subcontractors, and major suppliers on board during the design and pre-construction phase to collaboratively come up with alternative solutions,” SavCon CEO, Eric DeSimone, explains.
As a result, decisions on different materials and delivery methods can be tackled early on and implementation can be carried out satisfactorily, ending in a timely, successful build. Although alternative materials can be expensive at times, their availability is greater and will help with keeping projects on time for clients, DeSimone says.
