Engineering High Level Challenges
  • Control of drawing production process
  • Equipment/material approvals
  • Managing communications with stakeholders
  • Manage and control large flows of project data
  • High volume drawing production, circa 13,000
  • Impacts and delays due to approvals and resubmission.
  • Package team leader control
  • Effective interface site/drawing office
  • “Red flag” workflows/approvals
  • Effective IT support to drawing office
  • Regular co-ordination meetings with main contractor
  • Material engineer and submittal manager joint monitor and control responsibility
  • Dedicated MEP interface co-ordination team
  • Early “kick-off” meeting with MC/client/specialist system contractors
