Phases of Master Planning

  • Define basic assumptions and planning parameters
  • Agree to general layout principles
  • Agree on preferred technology solutions
  • Prepare block diagrams
  • Facilitate technology discussions that could impact future capacity and physical development of the site
  • Calculate area requirements for production functions
  • Define requirements for new buildings and building modifications
  • High-level building and functional layout
  • Agree upon phasing of construction
  • Define interfaces with current production plant and buildings
  • Develop a high-level time line
  • Production capacity calculations for agreed scenarios
  • Description of interfaces (block diagram and layout)
  • High-level time line
  • Identification of production and site constraints
  • CAPEX budget
  • Layout drawings
