Case Study

 Efficiency in Building Layout and Design 

Building Layout / Operational Flow

Our client’s CDI was designing a new facility to move their operations to. Current operations we at capacity in their main facility with three additional off-site locations being utilized as well. Carrus Group received their initial new plant design and began running production flow models through the building which revealed the inefficiencies in the operational flow as well as the budget overruns caused by the building layout.

Building Redesign – Cost Savings

Our Industrial Engineers and Project Managers went to work, studying our clients process and letting that drive the new building design. We were able to create a building that more efficiently supports their operations while allowing for greater future expansion on the site. Carrus Group also looked specifically at the material handling assumptions that were made in the design and better aligned them with equipment and process resulting in a $2.2 million dollar savings for that budget. Total cost savings are nearing $4.5 million, without taking into considerations for increases in throughput and efficiencies. $1.2 M – Pre-cast / Steel $2.2 M – Overhead Cranes $450K – Concrete Site Work 123K sq ft – Future Expansion Customer Contact Patrick McDermott – Director of Manufacturing / Operations
