Alpay Cholak: Our Expert in the Food and Beverage Market
Richard Wall: Our Expert in the Fine Chemicals Market
Over the past few months, many companies have felt the impact of COVID-19. Whether it is felt financially or through the measures that were taken to ensure everyone’s safety, our daily lives were disrupted and put on hold. Our way of life changed abruptly and our competence to adapt to the new situation was put to the test. Eventually, a new normal was born, where social distancing is key.
IntES was quick to respond to the crisis. Offices were temporarily shut down and everyone was ordered to work from home. It was a necessary response to a devastating pandemic that swept the world. As the months passed by and it became clear that COVID-19 would not be eradicated in the foreseeable future, companies began looking long term. How do work sites and offices look like? How can these places of work be as productive and safe whilst following the new safety guidelines?
There are many challenges towards survival, recovery and starting to thrive once again. Namely the:
Whilst some companies will have the internal resources to support the required recovery programmes, others simply do not have the skills required, or even if they do, these resources will be in great demand and will be stretched to the limit. The reality is that these resources will not be allocated equally across all the places of work. Instead these resources will most likely be given to high value sites.
This however should not be the case. At IntES, expierence has taught us that the lower value sites can bring in greater improvements than the high value sites when right and effective changes are implemented. If these changes are implemented across all the lower value sites, the result will be much larger than the higher value sites. Lower value sites are easily ignored but IntES believes that these sites are just as important to pay attention to. A bunch of lower value sites together can bring in more than one high value site.
IntES can parachute the needed resources into your organisation. These resources come in the
form of the strong consulting expertise between our two lead consultants: Alpay Cholak and Richard Wall. Together they have nearly 80 years of experience. Behind Alpay and Richard stand professional engineers, designers and planners within the IntES support team with their own impressive CV’s.
Our lead consultants will be the bridge between operational expertise and EPCM. With their knowledge and expertise they will help your team making well thought out decisions and plans to help your company figure out how to navigate their sites efficiently and securely.
Many firms have initially been blindsided but are now establishing a clear path to survival, recovery, renewed profitability and sustainability is the next stage.
