  • Hello Frankie speaking

  • Hello Frankie, it's Steven Davis here. Look I know you're busy so I'll get

  • straight to business.

  • It's about the time line for the proposal. You say you need six weeks to

  • complete phase one, but that's way too long,

  • given the tightness of the other deadlines. Can't you speed it up by about

  • two weeks to finish in mid May,

  • rather than the end of the month? That's impossible!

  • We have to wait for materials to arrive from the suppliers.

  • So hurry them up a bit! I can't!

  • They have to wait for fresh shipments from (their) suppliers and given the transport

  • strike in Venezuela,

  • they are in a difficult position themselves. I see, well

  • get another supplier! No way, this particular supplier has an excellent

  • track record for quality.

  • We designed the work tops with them in mind and then (if) we had to choose someone

  • different,

  • we (would) need to rethink the whole concept, which would take us back to square one.

  • OK, OK, let's go on to the models.

  • I want them to be delivered by Friday. No problem.

  • Good, I was talking to Nelson Ng

  • about the development plans for phase three and he wants you to defer

  • the lighting until the final approval from the architects.

  • Why? Well he says there will be objections

  • On what grounds? Mmm, well of course they have the bigger picture in mind, and it is

  • them who are in

  • daily contact with the builders. The answers no!

  • But I need to talk to him myself I think. I'm not going to answer you now.

  • I'll get back to you when I've spoken to him.

  • OK, but make it soon. I've got people breathing down my neck on this.

  • No problem. Well these are the main points for now.

  • I want you to let me know by next week. That shouldn't be a problem.

  • Good I'll see you then. Goodbye. Goodbye.
