Successfully designing and erecting a quality building in an emerging economy requires a lot to go right, whether it’s adhering to local codes, navigating the logistics of global manufacturing and shipping, or any number of other challenges.
Consider, too, the capital market’s demands for quicker and deeper returns, and the risks are exacerbated, as a building must be delivered on a compressed timeline with a condensed budget.
When embarking on a global construction project, the surest path to success is to mitigate the imminent risks you can control.
Look for providers that can optimize design and employ building information modeling (BIM). This lets you overlay multiple plans, such as those for the structure and process equipment, and ensure there are no conflicts.
Permitting and code compliance
Work with a provider that offers local permitting and compliance expertise, but don’t rely on local codes to dictate quality when building internationally. Choosing a provider that can deliver the same quality anywhere in the world will help eliminate surprises once the building is erected.
