Vendor and Contractor Management: We vett, select, and manage subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors to ensure quality workmanship, timely delivery of materials, and adherence to project specifications.

Our Process:

Step 1: Vendor and Contractor Selection

1.1. The process begins with a comprehensive vendor and contractor selection process. We identify the specific needs for subcontractors, suppliers, and other service providers based on the project scope.

2.2. Only those who meet our rigorous criteria are considered for further engagement.

Step 3: Contract Negotiation and Agreement
