Detailed engineering is about turning concepts into constructable designs, efficiently and cost-effectively. The benefit we bring to a client is our experience, with a service that is tailored to the individual project, covering both design-supply and design-build situations.
Detailed engineering is a systematic progression – from process design and selection of mechanical equipment, to sizing of control equipment, definition of electrical supply requirements and eventually, civil and structural design.
It is essential that each stage is sufficiently defined before information is passed on to the next discipline. This strategy optimises the cost of engineering and is vital for purchasing equipment.
At the same time, however, it is necessary to drive the design process so that the project meets its schedule. Previous site experience is a valuable part of this process.
Beca AMEC has many years of experience in managing this delicate balance, and employs a well-developed set of tools and techniques for controlling design budgets.
As a multi-disciplinary organisation, we work closely with construction managers to deliver designs that can accommodate constraints, particularly where projects are restricted by fully operational, 24 hour/day plants.
Making innovative use of smart design tools can result in increased accuracy and reduced rework costs. Our dynamic modelling of plant scenarios can eliminate design conflicts and streamline the construction process.
Beca AMEC’s depth of knowledge and experience in the pulp and paper industry spanning 25 years gives us a significant advantage. Understanding how the industry works at a micro level means we can appreciate the complexities at each stage of the process.
