Today in our traditional heading "LMS in faces" we would like to share an interview with Tarlan Guseynov, our leading specialist in the procurement of engineering equipment and materials.
What do you do at Limak Marash, line of business, function, position.
— I am a leading specialist in the procurement of engineering equipment and building materials. My area of activity includes the procurement of all electric power and low-current parts, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, water supply and sanitation. From chiller to fan coil, from transformer substation to outlet, from servers, switches to fire detectors and video cameras. Everything that does not relate to the construction of the building and decoration is my part in terms of purchases. I am part of a team of engineers and a design team, participating in the completion of all our projects under construction.
How did your path in the construction industry begin?
— I started my professional career in an engineering company that was engaged in construction in Krasnaya Polyana, Sochi. And the first object that I managed in 2006 was the Gazprom Mountain Tourist Center. It was later renamed the Grand Hotel Polyana when Sochi was declared the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics in 2007.
Until 2014, I participated in almost all construction sites in Krasnaya Polyana, which we were preparing for the Olympic Games.
When did you start working for Limak Marash?
— In 2015, I was invited for an interview at Limakmarashstroy for the construction of Platov airport in Rostov-on-Don. Limak Marash then only formed from two companies, this was in July. And in September I was invited to the facility. Passed an interview and started work the next day. Therefore, it turns out that my first object was the Platov airport — from the very beginning of construction to commissioning.
Tell us about your experience in previous projects.
— I have participated in all Limak Marash projects since the beginning of the company's existence. In six years, such major projects have been implemented as the construction of international airports in Volgograd, Khabarovsk, Chelyabinsk and Kemerovo, as well as the construction of the Stolitsa shopping center in Moscow.
What is the uniqueness of the processes in your specific activity?
— Each site is a unique engineering challenge. Because the stage "P" in the engineering part is general technical solutions. And when the working documentation begins to be drawn up, and construction is going on at the same time, then it's like solving a rubik's cube in a speed competition.
On a daily basis, I interact on work issues with engineers, project coordinators, suppliers, lawyers, financiers. Each project has its own unique combination of equipment and solutions for the tasks and features for this facility.
Share your successful cases. Do you implement your own developments, technologies that improve the quality and efficiency of your work?
— Since my work is related to the procurement of engineering equipment, the cost of which is influenced by a large number of criteria, it is very important to properly systematize and archive this information for the possibility of further analysis of changes in value at newly constructed facilities. From the first day of work, I have introduced and improved the system of archiving information on purchases.
During the work, we have accumulated arrays of information on the nomenclature, characteristics of the cost of equipment with delivery to different cities of our country. This information today allows us to analyze the cost of newly received offers based on the history of purchases. In this connection, the level of expected discounts from manufacturers for the purchase period is calculated with a margin of error.
What are the prospects for the company, in your opinion.
— Now Limak Marash has a very talented and fairly young team of both founders and managers and engineers. With a good understanding of such a team, the growth prospects of the company are the best.
