The ability to influence costs is critical to meeting or exceeding budgetary goals and preventing contract growth on the type of large specialized plant facility projects executed by Roeslein & Associates. While serving clients in a wide range of industries, such as metal container manufacturing (canmaking), petrochemical, oil & gas, pharmaceutical, biotech, renewable energy, and biofuels, Roeslein approaches these extremely complicated projects with a unique approach – Modularization, Unitization, and Preassembly. This approach allows Roeslein to exert the maximum influence over costs for as long as possible in project schedules, and delivers concrete cost reductions to its clients and a quicker return of invested capital.
As each particular project progresses Roeslein applies its innovative and proven methodology to identify responsibilities, engineer efficient designs, and deploy resources prudently for the benefit of the client’s budgets and schedule. During Phase 5: Commissioning and Start Up, Roeslein implements stringent protocols to ensure that cost and schedule savings accrued over the life of the project translate into smoothly and efficiently operating equipment.
Installation is phase 4 in Roeslein’s unique approach; it is the first step that takes place “in the field.”
Because Roeslein & Associates strives to achieve a clear understanding of each client’s unique goals and objectives at the start of every project, it positions its installation teams to execute with maximum effectiveness and efficiency on the job site.
Building on the foundation of the design & engineering segments of the project, Roeslein’s Phase 3 approach seamlessly transforms meticulous planning and design into concrete action. As the project enters into the fabrication process at one of its three fabrication facilities, the exceptional benefits of its unique Unitized, Modularized, and Preassembled methodology take center stage.
Roeslein & Associates undertakes every project with a clear understanding of its client’s imperative to bridge specific goals with its bottom line. Therefore, during every step of the 5-Phase Process, Roeslein’s engineers consistently evaluate project components with regard to cost, schedule, and quality. When Roeslein is involved at the Preliminary Engineering phase of the project, the preliminary design elements developed during Phase 1 – such as Process Flow diagrams, P & ID’s, Mass Balance Lists and Construction Specifications – support a smooth and seamless transition into Phase 2: Detailed Design & Engineering.
Phase One: Conceptual Design Phase. For most large cap expenditure projects, the earlier Roeslein is involved, the more effectively Roeslein’s methodology identifies efficiencies. At each step in the 5-Phase Approach, Roeslein evaluates project components relative to cost, schedule, and quality priorities. Roeslein then helps the client give the proper weight to each of these priorities for each project component and analyze data for the development of final feasibility studies. As part of the Conceptual Design Phase, Roeslein assists the client in the development of preliminary planning in five key areas: scope, budgets, responsibilities, schedules, and preliminary design.
By breaking down complex manufacturing systems and its components into self-contained unit sections, Roeslein moves a major portion of the construction process from the job-site, to a more controlled environment at one of its three fabrication facilities in Red Bud, IL; Hollister, CA; or Shanghai, China. In terms of project efficiency, this means that the on-site facility construction schedule significantly overlaps the equipment engineering and construction schedule, shortening the overall project by weeks, or frequently even months.
