This is one of the areas where EIA brings great value to our partner teams. Our Project Managers are very familiar with the quality, cost, and availability of a wide variety of construction materials throughout the country. Because we are mostly Bolivians ourselves and we speak the language, we are able to purchase materials at the Bolivian price instead of having to pay the Gringo price that expatriates and teams coming from North America and Europe normally pay. This alone can save 50% on project material costs.
In addition, we work with teams to develop a material purchase list so that we can arrange the purchase and delivery of them to the community worksite before the team arrives. This means that you won’t have to spend extra time and money driving around looking for the right materials and the right prices and then additional time arranging and waiting for delivery.
