INITIAL CONSULTATION - BUDGETING - BIDDING - FINAL ENGINEERING - CONSTRUCTION - COMPLETION
If plans for a new project or expansion arise, Hatchery Planning is here to help put all of the pieces together. There are many factors that go into planning a project. Hatchery Planning has extensive experience with these decisions. With our focus solely on the hatchery/poultry industry, we offer a higher level of understanding than other engineering firms. No loss of time spent training the engineers on how a hatchery operates.
Hatchery Planning provides construction management services throughout the project. This includes daily communications with the contractors, questions from sub-contractors, project meeting coordination, project site visits, equipment scheduling, etc. A construction project should not get in the way of day to day operations at a hatchery. We are the owner’s eyes and ears on the project to ensure the project is a success.
Hatchery Planning offers a full bid package for our customers. Once the budget is considered and approved, Hatchery Planning will develop a set of bid documents for the contractors. This bid package will be complete with all engineering, prints, specifications, and other documentation needed. At the request of the owner, Hatchery Planning can receive the bids, and qualify and organize these bids in a concise format for review with the owner. This process ensures that all bids are equal in scope, and that all possible deducts or additions are considered.
One of the first steps in a project is preparing the proper floor plan. The project may be as simple as adding a few machines to an existing building or as complex as an entirely new hatchery facility. There are hundreds of questions and considerations to be addressed even during this stage, including: • Overall Capacity • Phasing of the Project • Future Expansion Plans • Building Construction Types • Automation Considerations • Site Design •
Once the contractor has been chosen and the final scope has been set, Hatchery Planning can modify or expand the bid package and convert these documents into a set of construction drawings. This set of documents will consider any changes, deducts, alterations, etc. Moving forward these documents will be used for the construction of the project. Hatchery Planning can be responsible for handling change orders and work with the contractor and owner for cost additions and deductions. We offer our expertise to qualify these change orders and act as the owner’s representative throughout the construction process.
Hatchery Planning will assist you in the final scheduling of the project. Our engineers and technicians will work directly with your contractors to assist you during the hectic period that occurs at the end of the project. This will ensure that ventilation, automation, incubation and ancillary equipment are ready for start-up at the proper time frame. Upon completion of construction and start-up, our technicians will work with your management and maintenace staff to train them on the facility’s systems.
