Managing large team at multiple locations

Practical Scenario - As a project manager , you manage a project that is being executed from two different offshore locations. You are leading a large team and estimated time to complete the project is 10 months. Thankfully 50% of the project team works from the same location as yours. During project initiation phase both locations were given resources with relevant experience and expertise.

Now 8 weeks have elapsed in the project. During the status meeting you realize that the two locations seems to be working in silos and conflict is emarging. You get uncomfortable as the team has not settled down and is not performing at its peak efficiency. Your key job is now to ensure that the whole project team starts performing to the peak of its efficiency. How do you ensure this. ?
