WCS lent their project management expertise to this massive mining operation that included 700 ironworkers. We quickly identified and addressed key barriers to productivity and began implementing systems that streamlined logistics and increased the project’s overall efficiency. Through the simple inclusion of a work glove program for employees, WCS was able to drop the number of daily incident reports drastically. Within six months, the client was already noticing the benefits of the safety and productivity systems WCS put in place.
WCS has supported the Cerro Verde expansion project with technical expertise in the areas of construction execution planning for structural steel erection and worksite efficiency analysis during the civil and structural phases of construction of the grinding and flotation areas of the Project. That technical support played a role in maintaining good productivity levels of the structural installation contractors’ workforces and it made a significant contribution to the improvement in the efficiency and flow of the execution of the overall construction effort in that area. WCS’s efforts in supporting the mobilization of these services into Peru under difficult administrative conditions speaks to the high quality and flexibility of the WCS administration group.
