Establishment of design criteria for regulatory compliance such as FDA, USDA, and EPA.
Start Your Project Off Right
Our process engineering approach is a methodical sequence starting with conceptual design which then evolves into a preliminary design and then to final engineering, construction, startup and commissioning and final documentation. These steps result in a naturally evolving design that becomes more defined as it progresses, changing from rough order of magnitude scope of work and project definition through final detailed design where every entity is known.
Provides refined process design incorporating stakeholder input from your plant teams (Production, Maintenance, Sanitation, Quality Control, etc.) and the development of more accurate general arrangements, critical elevation views, preliminary P&ID’s, process flow rate / loss balancing, general pipe routing, specifications, refined project cost estimate, and preliminary project schedule.
Your Process Comes First
During the above phases of design, we work with your team for on-site information gathering, defining the project goals and timelines, identification of obstacles, and running workshops with your team to determine final agreed upon process requirements as well as future expansion and improvements to account for.
The above steps are the back-bone for a multi-disciplinary engineering team to design a modern food plant that is focused on the process itself as the most important deliverable. Covert Engineers, Inc. believes that the process must come first with buildings, utilities, and other elements designed to support that process to ensure that the final food product being produced is the best that it can be. Once the process is established, we can wrap a building around it and design the support systems to make sure it is efficient.
The above activities provide the fundamental basis for development of the total project including…
