Industrial Architecture & Code Consulting

Industrial architecture is integration and application of traditional architecture to industrial plants and facilities, where an innate understanding of the process flow operations is of relevance. Where traditionally architects are concerned with human flow and occupancy, Industrial architects focus on the integration of process flow and equipment layout, along with operator and human flow to ensure well operating and efficient design of a manufacturing facility or terminal.

In combination with complex architectural and code requirements, industrial plants and manufacturing facilities require the integration of essential process and facilities engineering (mainly equipment, electrical, and mechanical) and regulatory compliance. This is essential to the early development stages of a project, as having a global view of all the disciplines and requirements forms the direction and foundation of a project and scopes of design and construction to follow, to achieve best results by allowing the following:

  • Meeting corporate and regulatory requirements
  • Realistic understanding of possible outcomes, with required scope and capital
  • Understanding the space, property and facilities required
  • Having cost estimates, budgets, and schedules
  • Meeting schedules, budgets
  • Handing off an Optimized and well operating facility to operations

  • Due-diligence audits

Site & Plant Layout Design

Our plant layout team works closely with our projects team and other project stakeholders to develop and design of layouts for sites and facilities. The deliverables at this stage form the basis for permits (TI, Building, Environmental, etc.), cost estimation, project scoping, and engineering design. 

Our team uses 3D Modeling and BIM software to produce:

  • Site Plans
  • Building & occupancy classification
  • Line & Equipment layouts
  • Spaghetti diagrams
  • Site Safety Systems
  • Plant & Facility layouts
  • Gaps analysis on Site Services & Utilities
  • Equipment Specifications
  • Liaison with OEM’s and vendors
