The BCI is developing a prefabricated mass production model for buildings and infrastructure, a kit of fully finished modular building units, providing flexibility to suit different configurations and locations. The integration of product development with procurement and manufacturing will give us close control of the entire process from conception to completion. This will include various stages, from due diligence, product design and development, through to production and refinement of a working prototype, followed by the full manufacturing process. Our team will be stationed close to the facility in order to monitor and maintain effective control. This is very important for establishing and reinforcing partnerships with our suppliers and manufacturers.
Our procurement procedures will be designed by our expert team to identify and select suppliers and manufacturing partners that share our innovation ethos and quality standards, with the capacity and resources to scale up production as required. This will be supported by contractual arrangements structured to secure intellectual property and future access to materials and factory facilities, to expedite scaling-up for subsequent projects.
