Case Studies

Technical and planning support for construction project improves productivity by 60%

Providing on-site support for the urgent replacement of 56 overhead gantry crane beams at a refinery, safely and ahead of schedule. 

01 Issue

Our client needed to urgently replace structural beams due to safety concerns, but the physical constraints of the site provided significant challenges and a slow construction process would result in lost production for the business.

02 Solution

We embedded our team with the client to gain a full understanding of their practices, enabling the accurate recording and mapping of baseline processes and output. We workshopped potential risks and their solutions, and assessed and improved standard work processes. Conscious of safety risks and a desire to limit shutdown times, we provided real-time problem solving and intervention.

03 Result

We ensured project’s early completion through our support to the construction process which improved productivity by 60%. The successful delivery of the structural remediation six days ahead of schedule provided the equivalent of A$18 million in refinery production revenue.
