Detailed Engineering for Capital Projects in Food and Beverage
Once funded, advancements in food and beverage processing and packaging technology begin to get real. The heartbeat of this phase is multiple Design Reviews led by our Project Manager, which drive down risks and in turn, costs. Here we produce P&IDs, Value Engineering ideas, and final mass flow calculations and simulation. Using our knowledge of industry equipment vendors and supplier relationships, we develop detailed equipment specifications. To ensure performance, we write protocols for equipment rates and throughput.
Concurrently, multiple iterations occur for optimum layouts and work flow. We then generate detailed bid packages for mechanical, electrical and facility work to be done for installation. We lead contractor walk-throughs and answer questions. Extensive bid analysis is completed. A highly detailed Level 3 Schedule is generated.
If requested, we will witness and document Factory Acceptance Testing (FATs) on equipment at vendor manufacturing sites. We can assist with or provide full procurement services, as well as provide project budget management services.
