A plant relocation is a huge endeavor that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The best way to get the job done right and thoroughly is to plan every detail of the move. Whether a company is consolidating operations or has outgrown the current infrastructure moving may be an inevitable. Sometimes moving closer to a supplier or a large base of customers makes a relocation a good financial move. Finding the right location is only the first and also a crucial step in the process. At Southwestern Industrial Contractors & Riggers, Inc. our experts can help with every step of the process.
Make the Industrial Relocation Effortless
When you entrust the heavy lifting to us we ensure that the work on your end is easy. However, there are things on your end that you can take care of to streamline the process. The first thing you will want to do is ensure that plant layouts are up-to-date. While you may be in the same location you were in decades ago, but you have probably upgraded since then. If the current drawings are not up-to-date you will want to be sure to take care of this. Engineers will use these drawings to create a setup that suits your needs at the new location.
Take Care of the Details
There are a few steps in plant relocations that can make your move easier that many plant owners may not consider. Taking photographs or video of your equipment is a great way to ensure that setup is handled properly at the new location. Be sure to get photos or videos from all angels. If there are specific connections or pieces that require special setup include these photos as well.
Any good move includes getting rid of clutter or unused items as well. There are many pieces of machinery that can be refurbished, sold, or replaced. Be sure to have a plant manager or engineer inspect all machinery. Moving unusable items and heavy equipment to the new location will only double the workload.
Consider All the Requirements
Before the move you should assess the overall plan. Be sure to take an inventory of requirements. This may include temperature specifications, special licenses, special foundations, pits, or trenches, and any other requirements. It is important to create a reasonable time frame.
