Building Relationships: The Benefits of Choosing a Single Source Cladding Supplier

Single or Multiple Cladding Supplier?

When planning new build or remediation cladding projects, often specifiers choose to approach multiple suppliers to source the right products for the façade of their buildings. Using multiple vendors does have its advantages, it can come with some drawbacks, such as reliability issues. Also, managing multiple vendors can increase the complexity and difficulty of coordinating and integrating their services, which can lead to delays, errors, and inconsistencies.

Other draw backs could include:

  • Information sharing may become more complex when dealing with multiple contracts
  • Lower order volumes reduce bargaining power and can push up prices
  • Multiple lengthy procurement procedures
  • Challenges can arise in terms of quality control and efficiency of products

To mitigate these risks, some specifiers may choose to work with a single-source supplier for their cladding products. By working with a single supplier, specifiers can streamline the procurement process, reduce the risk of errors and delays, and ensure consistent quality and pricing throughout the project.

Other benefits include:

  • Lower pricing, as all requirements are consolidated with one supplier
  • Consistent quality and efficiency of products
  • Faster purchasing times due to communication with a single supplier
  • Easier measurement of supplier performance
  • Improved communication, building a relationship between suppliers and company

This approach can help simplify project management and ensure a smoother, more efficient construction process.
