The company is looking for partners for building materials.

Engineering and infrastructure development firm, PPC Limited, has advised contractors to scale hurdles associated with materials sourcing for their building construction projects by building strong partnerships with global suppliers.

In view of the high cost of building materials and supply chain issues, the company in a statement said that supplier relation­ships had become increasingly crucial to the early delivery of engineering projects.

The Head of the Building Services Engineering division, PPC Limited, Anand Kumar, said that based on the expected improvement in port capacity in Nigeria with the unveiling of the Lekki deep seaport; engineering contractors need to play their parts in ensuring building materials are delivered promptly.

Supply chain delays caused by freight congestion at the ports, poor infrastructure, and high shipping costs are some of the top challenges slowing down the progress of construction projects in Nigeria. Rising costs and lengthy periods of delay have significant consequences for engineering projects such as increased operational costs, reduced productivity and damage to relationships with clients, to mention a few. “However, with the upgrade in port capacity through the construction of the $1.5bn deep water port in Lekki, Lagos, there is hope.”

Also, the Media Strategist at PPC, Ifeoluwa Ogunfuwa, noted that  engineering contractors should anticipate supply disruptions such as material shortages, geopolitical disruptions and other vulnerabilities.”
