Controlling Risk with the Right Approach

It is one of the fundamentals to control risk for the success of any construction project, and a vital part of the construction risk matrix is the procurement of products and materials. New risks can emerge that require unique skills and knowledge to effectively manage as procurement approaches are advanced further.

AWC has embraced an integrated approach to managing risk in the global procurement program. With our developed risk identification procedures, we aid our clients in determining whether their projects are suitable for global procurement. We also adopt risk mitigation strategies to manage the procurement activities we carry out.

Reducing the Costs

Global supply markets keep progressing at an exceptional pace. The most reasonablesources abroad for many construction products are now located in China, South East Asia, and Eastern Europe.Typically these sources deliver top quality products at a significantly lower cost than the North American counterparts. These newer markets supplement our database of traditional supply markets that AWC has already established networks with. We and our clients will always benefit from a truly global marketplace, as new suppliers continue to emerge constantly.

Expanding the Choice Range

As we improve our worldwide supply reach, we’ll continue to offer an increasing portfolio of vendors and products. We are in the process of expanding our knowledge of supply opportunities beyond architectural products.Our database will soon include fixtures, high end structural materials, and fabricated specialty items that meet our project requirements. With the opportunities of each procurement assignment, we seek and discover new applications where AWC’s offshore procurement experience can value our projects.

The range of products that you can choose from has now become almost limitless as we continue to add offshore suppliers to our database. Products which were considered rare and exotic for North American applications are now much more accessible and affordable with procurement opportunities.
