Managing Your Next Project

For material handling jobs, we establish a communications system with a pre-project conference to outline the scope of work, manpower needs, and scheduling issues — and we maintain that interaction throughout the project. When UBC millwrights perform installations within active facilities, we adjust schedules around peak production times and schedule shifts during non-typical work hours to avoid interrupting and delaying operations.
