Quality levels are monitored by the PID team– we also oversee the management of logistics to fall in line with the Master Program and scheduling. Procure It Direct also take full Contractual Responsibility on Delivery, Time and Quality. International Warranties are offered as a minimum.

It’s been a very busy couple months for BCI Worldwide in Macau with three major projects all happening at the same time. The ongoing projects include: the renovation and conversion of the Four Seasons, renovation of the Encore Tower Suites, and renovation & re-branding of the Londoner at Sands Cotai Central. BCI Worldwide is managing the Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment (FF&E) Logistics for each of these projects.

The Londoner is a major project by the Sands organization, with 1,700 guestrooms at Sands Cotai Central being renovated and re-branded to a London-themed integrated resort. BCI Worldwide is handling the de-installation and removal of all the old FF&E and the warehousing and installation of all the new FF&E. Over $2 billion USD has been invested by Sands China on this project alone.

Right across the street, similar work is being done on the Four Seasons Hotel Macau. Another Sands China owned property, this project will see the renovation and conversion of the property into a 289 room, all-suites hotel. Warehousing and installation of all the new FF&E going into the suites and public areas is being managed by BCI Worldwide.

And finally, the renovation of the 410 room Encore Tower Suites at Wynn Macau is aiming to finish up by the end of 2019. BCI Worldwide has been managing the on-site logistics since the beginning of the summer, having been working on the removal and de-installation of all the old FF&E and the installation of all the new FF&E.

Hampshire, IL – BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD, a leader in the construction industry with roofing, sheathing and soundproofing products, offers SOUNDSTOP, a high-quality fiberboard that deadens sound transfer from room to room.

An eco-friendly and cost-effective option, SOUNDSTOP fiberboard suits soundproofing and sound insulation needs and can be used for effective application on walls, ceilings, and floors. SOUNDSTOP meets national codes and building standards and is ideal for homes and commercial buildings where noise transmission from room to room needs to be eliminated.

SOUNDSTOP allows for a continuous sound barrier across the entire wall blocking sound transfer though studs and the wall cavity. This provides superior performance to intermittent acoustical batt insulation design. The continuous barrier is the same concept utilized in laminated gypsum products; however, a system utilizing SOUNDSTOP instead can deliver great STC results at a fraction of the cost. Stopping the movement of the sound or shock vibrations to the other side, SOUNDSTOP can block out heavy traffic, blaring horns, airports, and other exterior noises.

“Not only is SoundStop easy to afford, but it offers great value and resale value for single and multi-family homeowners as well as commercial property owners,” said Mike Taylor, director of sales and marketing at BLUE RIDGE FIBERBOARD.

SOUNDSTOP is made from organic materials including hardwood fibers and can be installed on both existing and new surfaces by placing the fiberboard on both sides of standard wall partition.

In addition, SOUNDSTOP is now UL certified for the 1-hour fire rating in a load bearing wall system when installed behind drywall.
