These examples articulate a growing understanding of offsite construction’s benefits, and not just in one particular market or geography and/or complementary to specific building codes. The international adoption of offsite construction will not only continue to gain momentum, but also is already starting to be standard consideration for worldwide design and construction projects.
Although Roeslein & Associates, Inc. is a household name in the canmaking industry, it is less known within the markets to which it is new: pharmaceutical, oil and gas, refinery, power, chemical and petrochemical. Roeslein is earning a reputation for reduced start-up times and improved efficiencies using its signature approach, Modularization, Unitization and Preassembly. One example of this type of success is Roeslein’s development of an automated sump pump system for an East Coast nuclear facility in 2012.
The process modules and unitized systems Roeslein fabricate and test in its controlled environment at its fabrication facilities can be produced from conception to installation in a much safer manner than can traditional on-site construction methods. In addition to adhering to stringent safety standards as it fabricates and deploys its systems, Roeslein also provides a superior, built-in approach to safety for its equipment during normal plant operation.
In Roeslein’s approach, process modules and/or unit sections which are either affixed to floor mounted steel skids, or integrated into free standing steel structures (unit sections) are fabricated at one of its fabrication facilities located in the U.S. or China. The preassembly and testing processes largely take place at its fabrication facility; this increases on-site unpacking efficiency, decreases the on-site re-assembly and installation time and reduces plant checkout time, improving the start-up curve.
During all phases of a project, the cost of deploying labor is one of the most significant areas impacted by Roeslein’s approach to delivering high-quality, specialized plant facility solutions to its clients. That’s because Modularization, Unitization and Preassembly is an approach that focuses on efficiency.
As experts in Modularization, Unitization, and Preassembly, Roeslein’s skilled consultants, engineers, and fabricators pride themselves on delivering only the highest quality in specialized plant facility solutions. The same unique methodology that they employ at its fabrication facilities, which has been proven to reduce project costs and timelines, also ensures excellent quality and performance standards in the final product.
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.
