Infrastructure development projects within secure boundaries in locations are characterised by complexity, particularly regarding space and access and can be significantly more challenging than many other environments from a logistical standpoint. The scale of development and the experience level of suppliers–often including high numbers of vetted and approved personnel–alongside the security and organisational obligations placed upon the supply chain can quickly changes a project from a simple “design and build” to a complex mandate requiring a secure logistics solution. Airports, nuclear facilities and other highly secure sites face unique challenges and require bespoke programmes to properly meet their needs.
Our approach goes beyond site concerns to ensure that a secure supply chain is also considered. Through a combination of strategies and services, including a consolidation centre approach, we help clients address space management issues, control material movements and delivery, and even reduce environmental impact across their supply chains, all under the banner of security. Wilson James has designed and delivered such solutions for a wide range of clients across the UK including Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports.
