Café Royal - Specialist Supply Chain Management

  • © Nick Tucker 2012

Working alongside Mace, who were providing construction delivery on the re-imagined Café Royal, Macro’s facilities management consultancy experts were retained to assist in the management of the specialist European supply chain involved on various key aspects of construction. Our role was to bring the client proper quality control, resource tracking and generally streamline supplier processes involving companies with very different approaches, languages and cultures of delivery.  

The Macro team worked alongside the client and architects, David Chipperfield Architects to coordinate and monitor the Italian suppliers, ensuring that samples were reviewed and materials available to meet the demands of the construction programme. Our role included managing divergent company practices, creating working relationships with clarity and problem-solving at their heart. Taking advantage of our long experience in delivering complex and challenging projects we were able to ensure key aspects of this historic central London redevelopment were completed efficiently and to the client’s expectations.
