Tough conditions in a beautiful environment
Working in Sweden is hard when your projects starts in October 2010 and is scheduled to end in April of 2011. Despite the cold winter with temperatures mostly around -10°C this project was delivered on time. globe-PM was in charge of all local procurement as well as contract management with local suppliers and subcontractors.
Ground Zero is currently the most interesting construction site in New York. However, it is also the most inaccessible site. Nevertheless, in the beginning of the project there was a chance of getting around all fences by simply taking a train from New Jersey into the very heart of it.
This train arrived in the middle of the construction pit and we have been on a train ride to get a closer look..Enjoy this video that was shot in Manhattan in fall 2008, accompanied with the sounds of Steve Dressler.
Logistics for ready-mixed concrete
Concrete is an upscale material. Deficits in the just-in-time delivery can lead to expensive material losses. The supplier shall be well organized in order to react quickly to spontaneous changes in the production process on the site. It is also necessary that the foreman on the site communicates regularly with staff from the concrete plant to get the arrival of trucks managed in an efficient way. With the use of navigation equipment the communication between plant, foremen and the trucks can be optimized.
