Nepal Company Has Solid Approach to Reaching Goals
Shailung Construction Company Pvt. Ltd. (SCCPL) has built its business around being on time. The company meets tight deadlines and provides quality paving in the process.
SCCPL faces challenges similar to those other paving contractors encounter. But SCCPL is based in the Kathmandu, Nepal, and its location presents the additional obstacles of paving at extremely high altitudes in a climate where the weather rarely cooperates and any problems are magnified.
How does SCCPL overcome these issues to complete the work on time? It recommends that companies:
Find good partners and technologies. SCCPL maintains close ties to organisations such as Nepal Engineers Association, Management Association of Nepal and Federation of Contractors’ Association of Nepal. “All have proved to be assets,” said Sharada Adhikari, managing director of SCCPL. The organisations help SCCPL stay current on trends and the latest industry technologies – something SCCPL advocates.
Be versatile. In general, the more parts of a project SCCPL can manage, the better the chances of meeting deadlines. The company’s diverse workforce – ranging from engineers to managers to operators – is experienced and can help multiple phases of projects move forward. Crews also have managed various roadbuilding machines including pavers, rollers and even rammers.
Create a specialised workforce. The company’s background in tackling all kinds of projects – roadbuilding, bridges, irrigation, dams and even transmission lines and treatment plants – also helps prepare it for whatever obstacles come its way. Its employees have worked on very diverse jobsites and are able to apply that experience when encountering challenges in nearly any setting.
Do it right the first time. The Apollo paver also helps the company meet deadlines. Benefits of the WM 6 HES include optimal machine uptime and quality aftermarket support. It meets or exceeds paving tolerances specified by the government, avoiding any time-consuming rework.
Take care of the details. SCCPL also takes steps to ensure the “little things” are properly completed. That means promptly tackling trench compaction, pedestrian walkways and other work that can emerge during projects. Ammann Rammers are the tool of choice for completing much of this work.
“Ammann Rammers are very user friendly and easy to handle,” said Adhikari. “Also, less maintenance is required, and the product quality is very high. It is a very operator-friendly machine. Hand vibration is minimal. The height is very easy to adjust.”
SCCPL has overcome many wide-ranging jobsite challenges – and in a part of the world where the obstacles can be significant. It has done so by sticking to tried-and-true processes that have proven successful around the globe.
