Waldron has extensive knowledge and experience in the engineering and design of utility plants and distribution systems. We excel at developing design packages and seeing them through to construction. The key is to understand the stakeholder’s goals, and structure a set of plans and specifications that clearly communicate these goals to the contractors. In turn, the result is a well-defined, successful project.
Important steps in the engineering and design services process include:
The driving force behind any corporate decision is economics. There must be a compelling fiscal rationale that is founded in technical and economic fact and presented in a clear and concise fashion. Waldron assists clients in the development of such arguments by providing input, risk analysis, mitigation strategies and presentation support.
The project development process can be a torturous path through an uncertain maze of regulatory, contractual and economic hurdles. Waldron’s extensive experience in bringing projects to fruition can provide clients with a clear road to ground breaking.
Our technical experience removes the guesswork and allows us to put forth solutions that pass regulatory muster.
Design Development / Detailed Plans and Specifications
Successfully moving designs from conception to reality requires the early inclusion of all stakeholders in the process. During the design development phase, we bring the stakeholders to the table to incorporate their thoughts and requirements. From administration through operation, early input in the design brings a sense of ownership to the project and subsequent success. The key product required for successful construction is the detailed set of plans and specifications that make up the construction package. This is the main tool for communicating the details of the design. The comprehensiveness of these packages result in a tight spread on the construction bids, and a small amount of RFI’s and change orders.
Construction support is a proactive quality control measure that helps insure the owner that the project will meet the design requirements. To insure quality, there is a structured submittal process, an RFI process to clarify questions, contractor meetings to review work plans, shop inspections, and site inspections. Construction support culminates in the documented turnover of the plant to the owner.
