Following the turnover of new facilities, business needs immediately start to change and evolve. This means the new facility will have to evolve to continue to meet the business needs. Over time, those chances can decrease efficiency and operation robustness. Having good procedures created from the beginning can help ensure system intent is still followed, but as those needs change, operating procedures need to continually be updated and system validation through Retro Commissioning will ensure the facility can still perform, operating at peak efficiency and providing a reliable infrastructure for the business to depend on.
When an event happens that has a negative impact to your facility operations, understanding why it occurred is imperative to preventing it from occurring again. Many times the first review of the situation only uncovers a symptom. Diving deeper to uncover the true root cause is that way to prevent not only the same event, but other potential issues stemming from the same root cause. Detailed analysis of the physical aspects, but also the operational sequencing and involved personnel in the issue are key steps to pushing past the symptom and to the root cause.

Facility Upgrade Planning and Migration
Root Cause Investigation
Creating a new infrastructure can be accomplished through good collaboration and an understanding of your company’s goals for the future. Being able to construct that new plan, has a process proven over many years. Creating the new plan and constructing it within an operational facility introduces many new challenges and risks that are unique to each upgrade. Reviewing the design, planning the implementation, and carrying it out without impact to the existing operations requires a specialized approach. We work with your design and construction teams to provide that expertise to simplify the process, decrease risk, and implement with minimal impact to operations.
