Umia's special way of working has also been appreciated by NKT. Per Blomkvist is KAM for installers and industry and became early involved in the construction projects with Umia.
- There are not many who work as Umia does, with all disciplines present in the projects - including the design, i.e., that they produce a complete documentation based on the framework description. For us, it will be easy and smooth only to work with one entity, not several different ones. For us at NKT, it is important that everything runs smoothly in the work with our products. Therefore, we have contact with the project managers on daily basis and have also made weekly visits to coordinate at the construction site, says Per Blomkvist.
Sustainability is an important factor for Umia, where all products in the projects meet the qualifications of the Swedish certification body Byggvarubedömningen. In the process, NKT has adapted packaging and deliveries, so that they have as little environmental impact as possible.
In one of the projects, Umia has also used NKT's environmentally smart solution Qaddy®, a durable and reusable cable drum trolley, loaded with installation cable, which allows the installer to easily move the material close to the workspace and feed the cable when it is pulled out. The Qaddy® drum is then sent back to NKT, who cleans, repairs and rewinds it with new cables which are then ready to be used again. Qaddy® is also a good ergonomic solution that makes installation more efficient.
