relocation projects are a complex undertaking that requires
professionals with years of experience and a resume of successful
projects under their belt. If a complex plant relocation is
done poorly it could result in runaway costs as well as lost market
share, reputations and employees along the way. R. Baker & Son All
Industrial Services is expert in plant relocation projects.
Plant relocation is never as simple as picking up your process in
plant A and setting them down in plant B. Plant and product line
moves and relocations are always much more difficult than planned or
anticipated. With contractors who do their homework, know the risks
upfront, have a contingency plan, and carefully manage the move, your
project should be a success.
Once the decision has been made to relocate, a detailed plan must be drafted in parallel with a schedule.
Important questions must be addressed: Will it be necessary to
temporarily outsource plant operations? What is the critical path and
non-critical path? There are very complex, intricate relationships and
dependencies with plant products, equipment and utilities. Make sure
the new plant can accommodate all of the operating requirements for
equipment process and or products. Business interruptions are more
expensive to address than physical or manufacturing process issues.
Many plant relocation projects are done in phases as most plants
carry different product lines, each having their own profit centers.
The relocation plan needs to address each part and phase of the
relocation. Disconnecting and reconnecting to shared utilities is
important and should be planned on both sides of the move from plant A
to plant B.
Plant relocation project teams need to consider all risks associated
with the move and how their impact can be minimized. Every project
requires a contingency plan, a “what if” scenario. The quality of the
move team is critical to the project’s success. Choose a highly
experienced contractor plant relocation contractor like R. Baker and
Son to ensure your project’s best possible outcome.
