Saskarc Feasibility Analysis

A Saskarc Feasibility Analysis can range from a modest, but thoughtful, expert evaluation to a substantial investment of expert resources whereby Saskarc can become an extension of a customer’s team. In this analysis, Saskarc looks at each project based on a certain set of criteria in order to better understand the project goals, develop a design strategy and define the critical requirements for the fabrication process. It is during this stage that designing for modularization is first explored.

The feasibility analysis can take the form of a preliminary analysis or a comprehensive analysis:

Preliminary Feasibility Analysis:

  • No-cost engagement conducted with key stakeholders
  • A high-level assessment of design considerations
  • Identification of key issues associated with:
    • fabrication
    • transportation
    • installation
  • Design best practices and recommendations
  • Typical time for engagement is 2 to 4 weeks


Comprehensive Feasibility Analysis:

  • Cost-based engagement conducted with key stakeholders
  • An in-depth assessment of all design considerations
  • Detailed analysis of key issues associated with:
    • fabrication
    • transportation
    • installation
  • Formal documentation of best practices and recommendations
  • Typical time for engagement is 2 to 4 months

Early Contractor Involvement

Our approach to Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) replaces information silos with full communications and transparency between all parties who play a role in the success of the project at all phases of the project lifecycle.

  • Ownership
  • Engineering
  • OEM Suppliers
  • Procurement
  • Fabrication
  • Transportation
  • Installation

 

Saskarc ECI facilitates collaboration between key stakeholders to increase ownership and accountability. Continuous updates and knowledge sharing allow each stakeholder to possess a deeper understanding of the critical issues and interdependencies associated with the project.

Saskarc ECI helps your project to realize multiple business benefits and outcomes:

  • Lower Cost
  • Shorter Schedule
  • Assured Safety
  • Higher Quality
  • Reduced Risk
