From Facility Management
Rome wasn’t built in a day, but if there had been a pre-construction plan, it might not have taken 1000 years. Designing manufacturing facilities for microelectronics, solar, biopharmaceuticals, data centers, and R&D is tricky business. It takes teams of specialists well versed in multi-discipline engineering including mechanical, electrical, chemical, and computing. A solid pre-construction plan involving all these engineering disciplines is the key to designing and building turnkey facilities for advanced technology manufacturing. Overall project success —whether improving value, controlling costs, or meeting aggressive schedules — relies heavily on key decisions made during this phase.
Careful advanced planning gives the project team the opportunity to consider all the intricacies of the project, analyze alternative solutions, and develop a clear understanding of desired outcomes. In this way, construction efficiencies are realized, and performance objectives are met.
At Kinetics, we put our extensive experience in specialized markets to work for clients to plan and optimize complex projects to meet critical goals. Using a collaborative project planning approach, our skilled, LEEDS-accredited engineers, estimators, planners, and managers work together to dive into the details early, to provide objective project assessments, and to develop detailed implementation plans.
In addition to general construction considerations, extra attention must be given to high purity requirements, precision calibration of equipment, intricate chemical and gas materials delivery, thermal capacity, moisture management, and life cycle performance.
The pre-construction phase begins with project design using building informational modeling software to provide a multi-dimensional digital vision of your construction project. We also include comprehensive cost analyses that consider LEEDs requirements, EHS planning, equipment installation, process test and validation, and more.
Our Pre-construction services are tailored to meet the specific needs of the project. Our key focus points include:
- Conceptual design and cost estimates
- Detailed designs and cost estimates
- Material procurement
- Site logistics
- Project controls
- Constructability reviews
- Value engineering
- MEP coordination
