Erection Planning

How do you add value and competitive advantage to your construction site?


Larger, riskier and more complex projects and construction sites strive to create value. The ramp up and improvement of production, quality, safety and efficiency in the permanently changing global landscape is a challenge. Under these conditions, in time and on budget project delivery is essential to value capture.

Thus, companies in engineering and construction need to incorporate fast moving advancements into their operations in order to deliver top notch products and services at higher speeds, better quality and decreased costs. That said, thorough planning reduces the likelihood of failures in the future.

Construction Methods Planning

Plant construction erection planning prior to kick off of physical erection of site to pave the way for long term value creation.

In this discipline we assess relevant construction methods and their impacts on site engineering, context, time, cost and finance. Especially with respect to large capital investments and numerous applied construction methodologies every activity must be efficient while effective.

Challenges in Erection Planning

Which is the most efficient degree of preassembly?

How will it effect a project’s milestones and applicable cost structure?



  • Individual assessment of construction relevant documentation essential to construction methods

  • Organization of erection sequences

  • Design and planning of material supply and a project’s supply chain

  • Design of erection planning by means of technical layouts, top views, sectional views, isometric views and corresponding documents

  • Planning of key functions during EPC execution phase and sub-phases

  • Planning of material sourcing chains, especially with respect to remote locations from planning phases over EPC execution until commissioning and ramp up of operations


Challenges in Scheduling

What is a project’s critical path?

Which milestones effect and threaten a project’s potential for value creation?



  • Erection planning for all of a site’s areas incorporating efficiency and effectiveness of the entire site’s progress

  • Erection planning for one area in correspondence with entire site progress

  • Site progress schedules & work breakdown structures


Challenges in Contextual Environment

What is the quantified impact on a construction site of technology shift or governmental regulations?



  • Assessment of macro environment of a large scale construction site, e.g. in terms of social, technological, environmental, economical, political, legal, ethical and demographical context

  • Raw materials access and handling procedures with regard to present and forecasted local conditions


Challenges in Cost Structure

Which supplier must deliver which solution?

What is the optmial contract?



  • Optimization of bargaining positions in procurement and contract management

  • Supplier/Subcontractor scope definitions

  • Supplier assessment

  • Tender documentation


Challenges in HSE, QMS, Processes, Documentation, Visualization

How do all project participants understand a project’s occupational health and safety requirements?

What are a project’s quality requirements?



  • Provision documents that entail bill of quantities of resources that enable evaluation of ratios and performance figures

  • Design of quality measurement systems that enable performance measurement of construction progress

  • HSE-relevant planning for construction methods

  • Tender documentation


Aims essential to a project’s capital structure

How do we reduce capital expenditure?

Which processes encompass relatively high impacts on a project’s capital budgeting?



  • Frictionless process designs that enable safe, efficient and effective implementation of planned construction methods.

  • Reduce CAPEX

  • Improve ROIC

  • Improve potential for value creation


Our Documentation is:

Visualized with Visio, CAD and other relevant programs that enable immediate understanding of all topics for all project participants.

Three dimensionally simulated to assess interferences and sources for headache prior to physical execution and the need for pain relief.

Insights & Challenges

Uprighting an HRSG module

Which cranes will be capable of lifting the planned preassembled components, rather a telescopic crane or a lattice boom crane?

Is it commercially and technically preferable that the crane is capable of driving with hoisted loads?

How will a 250 tons, 30 m long module be uprighted? How many cranes are needed?

Where shall the lugs be positioned in prefabrication?

Will the subsurface piling resist the pressures of the planned cranes?
