Once the design is approved, the project is handed over to our contracts team and you will be assigned a dedicated Project Manager. It’s their job to coordinate all aspects of the job in accordance with health and safety guidelines. When good are delivered on-site, your Project Manager will agree on a suitable date to suit you. Upon delivery we require a clear indoor space to offload materials safely, and may also request access to equipment for off-loading and transfer of materials. In this instance we will notify you in advance to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
We know that any retrofit job can be hen it comes to installation, you can trust PD Industrial to carry out a quality and professional job to our exacting health and safety standards, all whilst preventing significant disruption to your daily operations. Prior to installation, your Project Manager will work with you to ensure clear passage for transfer of materials to the installation area, which may involve use of onsite forklifts and scissor lifts if available. We understand that retrofit projects need to be managed carefully to minimise disruption to your ongoing operations. Our project management teams are adept at planning and executing retrofits in a way that reduces downtime and maintains operational continuity. We work closely with you to develop a schedule that suits your business needs, ensuring that the retrofit process is as smooth and unobtrusive as possible.
Once installation is complete, your Project Manager will check the work to make sure we delivered exactly what was agreed, then double check that you are happy with the final result too. We never leave a job half done, and if there are any problems with a job we will work to make it right. When we do leave the site, we’ll tidy up after ourselves and leave the place as we found it (or better!) so you can continue with day to day operations safely and efficiently.
