Procurement & Construction
Global Sourcing and Procurement Support
Materials expertise and knowledge to deliver complex projects.
In construction, procurement refers to the process of managing and coordinating sourcing, purchasing, and shipping of materials needed for a project. This involves supplier screening and selection, cost estimation, factory oversight, and logistics management to ensure timely delivery of required materials within budget.
Projects large and small require buying and shipping construction materials produced around the world. When contractors and owners need guidance on finding the products they need to get the job done right, they turn to TRC to manage the entire procurement process.
Our materials testing, engineering, quality compliance and project management staff are dispatched throughout the Americas, Asia and Europe, providing the technical expertise, supplier relationships and experience in international logistics to exceed your requirements.
