Designer Group has chosen to partner with Constructionline as our preferred pre-qualification check service, which satisfies Designer Group’s requirements for our supply chain’s vetting before engagement.
This enables us to deliver high-quality projects with a compliant and sustainable supply chain. As a minimum, it is our belief that all our supply chain partners achieve Constructionlone Gold.
“The collaboration between Designer Group and Constructionline will allow us to build a stronger more robust supply chain. The Constructionline database will help us to work more efficiently and engage quickly with the right subcontractors/suppliers. It is important to Designer Group that we feel fully secure with the subcontractors/suppliers that we chose to help us deliver such prestige projects.”
