If you’re a business owner, facility manager, or production specialist, you know how important it is to keep your plant up and running at all times. Keeping your structure maintained can be a full-time job, not to mention the expense involved in constant updates. A facility audit lets you know where your attention is needed.
Any missed service or repairs could lead to big-budget hits down the road. This doesn’t even cover the billion-dollar costs of an unsafe work environment, including fines, workers’ comp claims, court dates, and settlements. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Although your industrial, commercial, or manufacturing plant may have been state-of-the-art a few decades ago, is it beginning to show signs of its age? Or maybe unprecedented growth has your facility bursting at the seams and in need of newer, more efficient processes.
Storee Construction facility audits begin with a walk around your building, discussing workflow issues, potential hazards, production improvements, and goals for the future. If you’re looking to expand, increase production, or add square footage, we’ll be able to show you how to do it.
As the premier industrial construction outfit in Missouri and the Midwest, we’re able to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. We understand what an additional 10,000 square feet will mean to your electrical systems, how to incorporate that space into the existing structure, and create streamlined transitions for streamlined productivity.
Proper ventilation, electrical panels that have room for expansion, properly sealed holding tanks, and more all go towards creating a structure that meets specific regulations. This could mean proper cooling in a food processing facility or even enough sprinklers throughout the structure in case of fire.
These are necessities that keep your facility up to code. These audits will also give you an idea as to whether future plans can be accomplished in your existing location. Storee Construction will also point out upgrades that will be needed as part of any renovation that takes place.
Is your operation running at peak speed? Would something as simple as installing overhead conveyor belts increase production? Would an improved floor plan or upgraded equipment cut down how often a product needs to be handled?
Our experienced engineers will consider the entire facility when considering production upgrades. A lot can change in the manufacturing or commercial marketplace. Our facility auditors will find ways to help you adapt to those changes and keep pace. Even if it’s only rearranging the furniture so to speak.
We’ve seen it many times: Efforts to improve production that put crewmembers at risk. Storee Construction has been around for more than five decades and has hundreds of years of experience working for us. And the one thing we’ve all known since day one is that no process is worth putting your workers at risk.
Inadequate fall protection, a poor workflow that puts man and machine at odds, crumbling infrastructure, or even just a lack of signage or safety barriers are all factors that can be identified and addressed. Many solutions have little to no impact on your overall productivity and can be performed during off-hours.
