ENGINEERING

Gulf Consult Architects and Engineers provides a comprehensive multi-disciplinary engineering, design and consultancy services. When required, Gulf Consult Architects and Engineers utilizes support from group companies and international affiliates to accomplish projects of any magnitude.

During detailed engineering, strict adherence to Client and applicable industry standards, codes and procedures is maintained. Compliance with engineering works, detailed by project ‘Scope of Work’, together with reviews to determine constructability Value Engineering, Plant Operability and Safety (HAZOP) are deemed paramount in the execution of the project.

Gulf Consult Architects and Engineers recognizes that quality assurance is an integral part of the design engineering process and that a commitment to quality is required from all employees. Quality assurance procedures and manuals have been developed to conform to those requirements defined by ISO 9000.

Gulf Consult Architects and Engineers also provides consulting services by providing relevant engineering resources to clients to form a part of their project team. We also provide assistance during the critical identification phase covering feasibility and preliminary engineering analysis to develop the basis for design.

Gulf Consult Architects and Engineers can assist the Client in the following project identification areas;

Define project objectives
Carry out site surveys and inspections to gather technical data
General application of existing site conventions to the current project
Requesting and obtaining drawings form the client’s central drawing office
P & ID and ILD mark-up
Mechanical layout of piping and equipment
Development of vendor non-material requirements (NMR’s)
Technical bid preparations / procedures in accordance with clients standard procedures
Development of plant I/O take off aided by existing plant experience (not all I/O are represented on plant P & IDs)
Identification of deviations and waivers inherent in the proposal client design
Preparation of specifications for the definition phase
Development of deliverables required for the projects scope of work
Development of project cost estimates and schedules for budget presentation

About Image

Gulf Consult Architects and Engineers will provide complete project specification that reflects all deliverables required from the detailed design, materials procurement, fabrication works and construction. Typically, we prepare a Value Engineering study and HAZOP review on the project specification to be included in the approval package. Also, prepare project execution plan and detailed cost estimates and schedule for project approval and funding.
