ECMIL A pivotal role in regional construction
It's a New Year and another opportunity to dust off those long awaited plans to upgrade, change, develop and create more protection, reinforcement and defence with steel.
In the past 12 months, we have seen a rise in all forms of construction in many different territories. COVID, post COVID and supply and shipping crisis not withstanding, our Caribbean development and construction sectors are moving ahead, leading the way in strengthening our environment.
The region has never been short of innovation.
As the global contraction and supply story becomes a woeful tale of price hiking and in places bad business behaviour, architects and builders are constantly looking for new ways to reduce cost, while still delivering more than acceptable creations.
The lavish multi roofs of the 90s and 2000s, with grand balconies and big balustrades, seem to have evaporated, replaced by more boxy, precast and glass buildings with 'flatness' echoing a mini modernist wave that began in the 1920s, often prevalent in times of change in building materials and new engineering culture.
It’s not truly clear where that walk down memory lane will take us, but cost and availability will be front and centre.
ECMIL plays a pivotal role in consistent product supply, maintaining ex-factory pricing, at a time when global price fluctuations negatively impact on the retail costs of construction materials, especially in importing island environments.
What is certain is a strong emphasis on reinforced concrete, which in turn requires reliable rebar and welded mesh as reinforcement.
This combination is ideal for our storm struck region.
Our comprehensive range of steel products place ECMIL at the centre of that regional supply, from foundation reinforcement works, strengthening columns and beams, to protective coverage, with a remarkable range of galvanised roof sheeting.
Our products are designed to handle the ravages of Caribbean weather and resist rain and high winds, directing often dangerous quantities of storm driven water through our PVC drain, and waste pipes to custom built galvanised water tanks, or storm drains.
Steel and PVC products, with some imagination, can become not only innovative and robust constructions, but unique and highly attractive buildings.
We work with many Caribbean construction companies, architects and engineers, always keeping pace with standards, new techniques and the demands of an ever evolving landscape and marketplace.
These relationships assists us in helping the development of the small contractor, or talented individual, who takes on the task of home construction, by providing products, technology and knowledge, which are tried and tested by industry professionals.
So as you make your 2023 building plans become realities, and quality, reliability and availability are keys to your success, make your first call to ECMIL.
Our highly experienced and knowledgeable sales staff will direct you to the best possible combination of our quality products, and shipping process, to make your project, big or small a strong and attractive success.
