Our Engineering Design department focuses on the compliance, feasibility, design and specification of water / wastewater treatment processes and equipment, materials handling and process plant layout. To support the integrated delivery of your project, we provide a complete package of engineering services from process engineers, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers as well as instrumentation and control, programmable logic controllers (PLC) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) modifications.
Some of our previous projects include engineering designs for process amplifications, new and rehabilitated network systems, water and wastewater pump system design and optimisation, sludge and biogas handling systems, chemical dosing systems, filtration systems, civil and structural modification and upgrades, and new process development.
Much of our experience is in brownfield engineering modifications and shutdown projects, undertaken within operating plant and networks, where process interruption must be minimised through careful project planning and collaboration.
Our understanding of both construction and operational issues translates into providing practical engineering designs that deliver value for money with minimised risk to our clients.
We always partner and collaborate with our clients to harness their knowledge and experience in delivering a quality product. Our concept development phase includes a number of project management and quality control processes:
- Option analysis & stakeholder engagement
- Clear Scope Definition
- Accurate data acquisition through 3D scanning and 3D imaging techniques
- Concept creation & commercial evaluation
We start by analysing the root issues and clearly defining the scope of the engineering project. We develop a variety of conceptual solutions, assessing how technological and marketplace innovations can be applied, to deliver best value. Concept designs are supported by information on capital and project life-cycle costs to allow sound commercial decision making.
Attention to Detail
We meet, discuss and facilitate workshops to involve all project stakeholders so they ‘buy in’ to the proposed engineering design solution, and ensure that their ideas and improvements are incorporated to yield the best result. The use of 3D building information modelling (BIM) significantly assists stakeholders in project comprehension, and improves the quality of safety reviews and lifecycle design
After reviewing and optimising the design, construction documentation is prepared in the client’s CAD platform of choice and controlled under our ISO 9001 accredited Quality Management System to meet legislative and industry standards.
We pride ourselves on providing comprehensive support through all stages of engineering design, construction and commissioning and start-up operation of the asset, including:
- 4D building information modelling (BIM) and 5D building information modelling (BIM) Construction Planning support
We have designed & project managed more than 250 water and wastewater, process plant and industrial projects. We understand that intelligent engineering can significantly impact construction cost, and ongoing operational & maintenance performance.
We strive to optimise every engineering design we do for our clients’ benefit.
