Procurement starts before detailed design is finished so that long lead items will arrive at the job on time and without delaying construction. Procurement begins with pre-purchasing – creating specs and connecting with vendors to ensure the best costs.
Generally, Equipment can be bought in the following order:
- ELECTRICAL SWITCHGEAR
- UPS AND CHILLERS
Long lead items are purchased before the trades in order to expedite the process. All procurement takes place in line with the final construction drawings. Jobs cannot be delayed because of late equipment.
