There are numerous factors to consider when evaluating and selecting a vendor. Each option contains its own set of considerations and limitations based on elements including industry, product and, most prominently, the proposed solution’s ability to address the client’s challenges. Vendor Selection becomes even more imperative because of multiple phases from conceptualization to completion.
Dividing the entire project into phases
Defining the criteria for selecting each type of vendor
Identifying potential suppliers
Evaluating the supplier in terms of his past experience and reference check
Checking the samples whether they are as per the specifications
Awarding the contract to the vendor
Panjwani Architects Dehradun have more than 37 years of experience in providing architecture services to our clients. Even when we do not take up construction part of the projects but still offer assistance in vendor selection as a part of our consultancy. With vast experience in effectively delivering various projects we try and make the project as cost effective as possible by selecting the best vendor at right cost for our client.
The vendor should have relevant experience
The quality of product or services provided should meet the exact requirement that we have documented
Cost should be as per the budget however without compromising on quality
The supplier should have capacity to meet our requirement
The geographical location of the supplier should have minimum lead time
Architect's role involes site selection, understanding the requirement of the client, creating drawings and finally delivering the finished product as per the initial discussion. However the entire process can go for a toss if the quality of products supplied are sub-standards. The finishing of the project largely depends upon the quality of material used. Its not only the current finising of the project but the maintenance and longevity also depends upon the same.
Being part of the vendor selection process we put our views based on our past experience and the design finalized. However we at Panjwani Architects never ever thrust our choice upon the client when it comes to vendor selection. We provide our expert opinion and then let the client take the final call while deciding the best vendor.
