Facility Planning and Commissioning

Whether in the context of a construction project or just as an additional investment: Facilities need to be planned, procured, installed and commissioned before being qualified.

We know the requirements for these project phases very well from many projects, ranging from 50.000€ up to 168 Mio. €. We gather your requisitions and develop the user requirement specifications (URS) from these. You can be sure to receive our advice about only the most current state of science and technical developments. Our goal is for you to obtain exactly the facility you need. Not less, but also not more.

On the basis of these user requirement specifications we then solicit the bids of previously selected suppliers, rate them and compile a bid comparison. If desired, we also accompany the contracting negotiations with the equipment manufacturers.

After the facility is ordered we prepare further steps, such as the factory acceptance test (FAT) or the preparation of the planned room.

We coordinate the FAT, write the protocol and take care of the timely delivery and installation of the facility in your company. Together with the technicians of the supplier, we then conduct the commission of the facility in accordance with previously developed and cleared commissioning plans. The documentation is of course carried out GMP-compatible, so that successful tests can be referenced in the following qualification, if applicable.

Finally, we perform the site acceptance test and write the corresponding protocol, including a list of all possibly necessary remaining tasks.

Who can do it? Help with choosing the proper engineering office and equipment manufacturer

After deciding in favour of project realisation, you need planning partners (e.g. architecture or process facility planning offices) who can understand and exactly implement your requirements and wishes.

The different planning offices for detail planning and implementation of process facilities (e.g. pipeline construction) have different focuses and experiences. Simply comparing the prices can lead to wrong decisions. Behrens Projektmanagement gladly helps you with choosing an adequate engineering office. During the project we monitor and control the chosen company.

That is correspondingly also true for equipment manufacturers who you want to task with the delivery of production facilities for your project. Behrens Projektmanagement can contribute extensive experience to this topic as well.
