Basic Engineering and Extended Basic Engineering
In the Basic Engineering, we continue the concept planning for your project in a logical manner. We create an initial, self-contained, approvable documentation that implements your specifications and forms the basis for the execution of the project. Basic Engineering is carried out in close consultation with you. In addition to our proven standards for the scope of documents, your specific wishes are of course also taken into account. We use modern and compatible software tools to create the documents. For the greatest possible flexibility, we also make use of long-term cooperations with reliable partners, if required. Thanks to our international presence, we can access local employees of the Glatt Group or engineering partners with knowledge of local conditions for your project in order to reliably implement country-specific requirements in each case. In consultation with you, we provide the necessary support in obtaining official approvals for your project. For this purpose, we prepare the necessary approval planning for submission in consultation with you and the responsible authorities and accompany the approval process.
Selected customized services within the scope of Basic / Extended Basic Engineering in continuation of the Conceptual Design with the focus on, among others:
- process description
- process flow diagrams, P&I
- plant parameters
- mass balances, energy balances
- layout plans
- equipment specification
- pipe class definition
- safety analysis HAZOP, FMEA
- qualification QMP
- cost calculation
- project time schedule: specified time schedule of the whole project
- project management
In the Detail Engineering we prepare the final documentation of the implementation planning for your project. Thanks to the depth of detail, taking into account legal requirements, it serves as a precise guideline for the implementation of your project: starting with the tendering and procurement of all project-specific supplies and services through to the construction of the facilities. Of course, the Detail Engineering is also carried out in close consultation with you. Whether it is a question of the scope of planning or the level of detail, specifications or tender documents – we discuss every step with you. Together with you, we conduct workshops so that all supplies and services for the realization of your project can be tendered and procured in accordance with the project requirements and your specific needs. As an elementary component for an efficient cost and schedule management, all key data for the further technical and commercial project realization are thus created.
- specifications for machinery and apparatus engineering
- installation planning in 2D or 3D
- piping design in 2D or 3D including collision check
- insulation and corrosion protection
- electrical planning
- planning of measurement and control technology
- programming of control systems and instrumentation
- safety engineering
Approval Planning / Authority Engineering
New investments usually require official approval. For this purpose, sufficiently detailed but, above all, approvable documentation must be prepared and coordinated with the responsible authorities.
In order to obtain permits in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act, information is required that is derived from environmental law, wastewater law or noise protection regulations, among other things. Checking public-law requirements is also part of the process, as are public hearings if necessary, so that the planned project at the site can be approved.
We support you in preparing the approval procedure, in coordinating the necessary documents in discussions with the responsible authorities and in preparing the application for approval.
We prepare the applications for you and/or accompany the approval phase. During the planning phase, we observe all relevant regulations such as the Hazardous Incident Ordinance, the Hazardous Substances Ordinance, the Technical Instructions on Air Quality Control, the Technical Instructions on Noise Control, the Odor Immission Directive, etc.
As a general planner, we also support you with an extended planning scope. In addition to the technological process, your project also requires the conception and planning of ancillary systems for supply and disposal, logistics, building and building services – in short: the general infrastructure with interfaces. Our experienced specialist planners and professional interface management can also fully relieve you of this.
In the sense of a holistic project approach as general planner, our project teams of experienced project engineers for supply and building services trades provide all planning services with overall responsibility in cooperation with our technology experts and our efficient project management. Our service portfolio as general planner includes coordinated interface and collision management for general planning in 3D design for all planning trades up to technical clarification with suppliers – if desired, even up to turnkey implementation. Minimize your project risks and coordination efforts and benefit from holistic planning from a single source.
