“With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit” E A Guest
Medical grade copper pipes and approved fitters were both in extremely short supply. With assistance from Hindustan Zinc, local administration and air conditioning service providers, we cobbled together a team of people who were working within the hospitals and with our teams. This activity was on our critical path, with components being flown in to meet our needs.
In each site, we came across build challenges. At Ambamata hospital, we found that the flooring was inadequate to bear the weight of columns and new flooring will require a 4-5 days curing period. Thankfully, our contractor on the ‘Third Space’ stepped up and the flooring was done in a day. In Bhilwara, insulation fell short. We immediately sent it from another active site in Udaipur. In Banswara, we couldn’t even find a contractor ready to work in pandemic conditions at the hospital.
Teamwork, innovation, communication, and a can-do, must-do attitude reigned over the team and the myriad of people who supported us. We were all connected by a common purpose and high technology; calls, virtual meetings, group chats, video calls, etc. People came together from Australia, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Delhi, Gurugram, Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Ahmedabad, Bhilwara, Banswara, Rajsamand, Jaipur, and Udaipur. Some were Semsites, others were not, all put together delivered.
