BAM Nuttall signs up for Builder's Profile
BAM Nuttall is the latest big name in construction to agree to use the Builder’s Profile to collect and maintain its supply chain information.
The civil engineering contractor confirmed it had signed up at the Builders’ Conference AGM yesterday.
The Builder’s Profile enables sub-contractors to submit the same pre-qualification information to different contractors without filling in bespoke questionnaires whilst contractors can access details of their supply chains instantly at the touch of a button – rather than waiting for paper questionnaires to be completed and returned.
The Builder’s Profile, supported by the National Specialist Contractors’ Council (NSCC) and The Builders’ Conference, offers the construction industry an online solution to the existing inefficiencies of the pre-qualification process for sub-contractors, consultants and suppliers.
A sub-contractor can create a basic Builder’s Profile free of charge, which can be sent to one main contractor, or upgrade to the premium version of the service and send their profile to as many main contractors as they wish, reducing the amount of time and money they spend on completing bespoke pre-qualification questionnaires.
Over the coming weeks, BAM Nuttall will be contacting its supply chain partners to explain what this means to them and how they can best use the service to help reduce their pre-qualification assessment burden.
Martin Paintin, procurement director at BAM Nuttall, said: “We required a system that would not only improve our efficiencies but reduce PQQ duplication for the supply chain.
“The Builder’s Profile fits perfectly with our vendor evaluation processes and our Beyond Zero vision – working towards our philosophy of zero accidents and environmental incidents.”
Paul Long, operations director at the Builder’s Profile, added: “In working with the Builder’s Profile, BAM Nuttall is ensuring that the benefits will be felt by all the companies it works with but is also thinking beyond their own supply chain requirements as the service has benefits for the whole industry.”
