Brosnan Construction was engaged on this warehouse development for Citadel. The scope included building and lifting of concrete wall panels into place creating the external shell of the warehouse building, along with the construction of two offices – one external and the other internal.
Our winning edge was a result of detailed methodology development with our supply chain and tendering the project works not only within Canterbury but also the lower South Island - where subcontractor pricing is currently more competitive. Using our supply chain to the best advantage was key; this involved early programme confirmation and communication on award of the project to ensure trades were tightly scheduled.
The enabling period for this project was only one week, so securing material deliveries, concrete supply and placing bookings – for instance crane dates – was critical. By leveraging our great relationships with our local and national supply chain we were able to meet the extremely tight enable period even though we were working within an extremely tight labour market and the early onset of the Christmas rush.
The project was successfully completed to achieve the desired outcome for our Client.
