Ardent provides design constructability services for both owners and EPC firms. Our reviews focus on aligning engineering deliverable sequence with the construction schedule, procurement and site coordination.
Another area of focus is engineering deliverable format, seeking efficiencies for both the design group and contractor.
Assuring uniformity in material types and installation details reduces quantities of unique materials and installations.
Safety is also a primary concern with constructability efforts geared to engineer safety into the design. Safety pays dividends for both construction and maintenance over the life of the facility.
Identifying opportunities to pull man-hours out of the field through the use of pre-construction assemblies, helps mitigate both safety and schedule exposure.
Ardent also reviews specifications with an emphasis on materials that are both field installation and delivery lead time friendly.
