A master plan is an all-inclusive three-to-five year visualization that identifies incremental capacity gains and site growth to accommodate future commercial projections. 

As a result of developing a master plan, you are empowered to make informed decisions that impact production capacity and efficiency, overlaid with capital forecasts. The foundation for a good master plan depends on well-defined commercial forecasts as well as validated process engineering data. Once these key elements are identified, collected, and organized, our well-rounded expertise kicks in as we provide innovative concepts throughout the progression of the master plan. 

Unique Process Systems and Applications Expertise:

  • Operational risk identification

  • Operational efficiency impacts

  • Hygienic equipment design considerations

  • Hygienic facility zoning and product protection

  • Equipment reliability and maintenance ground plan

  • Application specific code compliance

  • Logistics study for personnel, process, waste, and traffic

  • Innovative ingredient/product portfolio data analysis (usage, economic order quantity, delivery method, and space allocation)

Typical Master Planning Elements:

  • Project scope development

  • Balance of plant utilities evaluation

  • Sanitation and food safety

  • Material handling systems, storage, and delivery of raw materials

  • Finished product storage and distribution

  • Operational space needs, adjacencies, organization, security, and employee requirements

  • Facility modifications or existing building renovations

  • Value engineering for existing site plan and infrastructure utilization

  • Constructability and subsequent development of a comprehensive plan and sequence for implementation
