Drifter Projects Ltd. can provide expert supervision of the selection, procurement, inspection, shipping, receiving and storing at site of the equipment and materials required to build the your project. Coordinating all these activities requires timely communications between the engineers, vendors, inspectors, shipping agents, Drifter’s Logistics and Procurement experts can receive and distribute the equipment and materials as they are made available to construction contractors by suppliers. Records for all these activities are important in keeping the construction schedule and budget manageable.
When encountered, delays in manufacturing and in shipping need to be made known to various groups across the project team, so the schedule of activities and staffing can be appropriately adjusted. Drifter Field inspectors work closely with the vendors so the actual delivery dates of equipment and materials can be more accurately reported to the construction supervisors. Materials and labour shortages as well as weather conditions can play a significant role in delaying the project so alternate choices are being made throughout the project by Drifters in order to make the schedule.
Drifter’s Logistics and Procurement experts play an important role in recognizing materials shortages before they are needed which helps prevent the schedule from slipping. Drifters experience on SAGD projects makes it possible to have the resources at site when the schedule demands.
Drifter, in consultation with the client, can also outfit a client’s warehouse and workshops with tools, equipment and spare parts that are required to support the clients operations group from the commissioning period to commercial operation. This requires the services of Drifter’s Coordinator, the engineer’s procurement group, inspectors, shippers in getting these resources at site prior to their being required.
