Our unique know-how is inherent to the success of your projects. Yet we are also able to reconcile efficiency, speed and performance thanks to a rigorous methodology that has taken years to perfect.
Divided into several phases, this methodology ensures that we are as close as possible to your needs, while designing solutions that meet your security challenges.
Whether it is for fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotech or airports, it is always a step-by-step process so that you can keep track of the project’s progress with us.
Terminology may vary across industries and countries, which is why we adapt to your requirements and agree in advance on the deliverables and levels of detail required for each stage.
Basic Design and Detailed Design
Also referred to as BPD (Basic Preliminary Design) and DPD (Detailed Preliminary Design), the Basic Design stage goes one step further in the details: we list all the equipment, make the first electrical diagrams, classify the zones according to their hazards… The aim is to ensure that the solution chosen is sufficiently robust and meets all your requirements.
The Detailed Design or Project Studies part is where the technical, functional and design specifications are determined. In a nutshell, it is a pre-synthesis that brings together all the elements constituting your project, including the P&IDs (Process and Instrumentation Diagram) and automation.
From the request for authorisation to the follow-up of supplier studies
During the project study phases, we prepare all the technical documents to create a set of specifications referred to as RfQ (Request for Quotation). These specifications bring together the lots defined according to your needs and purchasing strategy.
Depending on the project size, we can allocate all the lots to a single company, or we can select one company for each lot. This second option requires more coordination, yet it allows for better conditions and fair prices.
We then compare the different suppliers who responded to the request for quotation according to several criteria (technical, financial, commercial, historical, planning). In an ACA, you choose the supplier(s).
Alternatively, should you opt for a turnkey solution, we choose the suppliers, since we are responsible for our subcontractors.
