Construction: Let SGS help you build an even more successful business
There are few industries more complex and competitive than the construction industry. Whether you are in the business of constructing buildings, infrastructure or both, you will appreciate that large-scale construction is a mixture of many smaller projects, which is a feat of multitasking in its own right.
Effective planning is an essential part of the ongoing project management process. The environmental impact of a job, its scheduling, budgeting, site safety, availability and delivery of quality materials, personnel, logistics, as well as inconvenience to the general public, compliance with local and national standards - these things and countless more all have to be considered.
Listening and creating solutions based on proven services
Understanding your business and project needs are paramount to SGS, for us to be able to determine how best to add value to your construction projects. Thanks to our long experience and wide-ranging knowledge of construction and associated engineering, we have a comprehensive range of services to provide complete solutions to your projects on time, on budget, safely and to meet your requirements. You can use our specialist services standalone or to augment your existing procedures. However, as you will know, it can often be more cost effective to subcontract certain services completely.
Early project life cycle involvement
Right from the beginning of your project, we can help. SGS can conduct construction feasibility and risk assessment and management studies. Use our geotechnical services and environment services before construction starts.
Are you sure about what materials you are using?
We also have a range of services dedicated just to materials: chemical and physical testing of the durability of materials and materials certification. For example, if a product is labelled as meeting a certain standard, how can you be sure that it truly does? We can tell you.
Do you know where your assets are?
It does not stop there. Another suite of construction services relates to the equipment, tools and machinery you use on site. We use the AHEAD asset management system to help you keep track of machines and other assets. Plus if you are buying or selling machinery, we can certify new and used products – from jackhammers to dumpers.
Global procurement needs global supply chain management
You can trust SGS for supply chain management services to check suppliers and materials at source.
Full project life cycle support
SGS can even handle all your facilities management, waste management and inspection requirements – right up to certifiable energy audits – once your building or infrastructure is complete.
