Project Detail: 

Objective: During the challenging 2019 pandemic, Lake Harbour launched a project to address Canada's critical shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The aim was to not only meet but also exceed the country's PPE needs in a timely manner.

Challenges: 

  • Navigating the urgent and scarce supply of PPE during the pandemic.

  • Adapting PPE to meet specific Canadian healthcare standards and needs.


Strategy and Achievements:

  • Innovation: Designed new solution to prevent window fogging

  • Rapid Development and Execution: Completed the project four months ahead of schedule.

  • Prototype Development: Created a prototype specifically tailored to Canadian requirements.

  • Strategic Sourcing: Initially sourced PPE units from China, addressing immediate needs.

  • Customization Process: Meticulously modified the PPE units, guided by a detailed Statement of Work (SOW), to comply with Canadian healthcare standards.

  • Adaptability and Responsiveness: Demonstrated exceptional capability to innovate and adapt quickly in response to a global health crisis.
