Early engineering paves the way for feasible, cost-efficient repair and renovation projects.
Gavin Kaleta, PE, LEED AP BD+C, Mechanical Department Manager at SSOE, recently authored an article published in Area Development Magazine discussing the advantages of preliminary project planning, concise scheduling, and front-end loading (FEL) when renovating an existing manufacturing facility. Even experienced teams benefit from deliberate, phased steps early on in a project, which alleviate productivity issues and inefficiency later on. Gavin’s advice for creating significant savings: spend early. By creating room in the budget for early FEL, you’re investing in up-front engineering that consistently delivers long-term cost benefits, while avoiding unplanned downtime and the dreaded shut down.
With 13 years of experience, Gavin offers an in-depth knowledge of basebuild projects for large high-tech clients, in addition to process-specific support system (PSSS) building expansions, central utility building (CUB) expansions, cleanroom retrofits, along with fab interior building development and layout changes.
