CASE STUDY: 4 REASONS WHY BUY MODULAR SYSTEMS IS PREFERRED FROM STICK BUILT
For new capital projects and/or expansions, it is seriously recommended, consider modular systems instead stick built fabrication of process systems. Here, Integrated Flow Solutions (IFS) gives you 5 reason why Modular Systems is preferred from Stick Built.
Reason #1 - Modular System costs less
The traditional “stick built” or “site built” construction method is subject to many factors that can negatively impact the construction cost & schedule. There are several advantages to modular vs. stick built process systems.
A Modular System is a more cost-effective solution because designs, constructs, and tests hundreds of system each year. With a complete manufacturing staff of designers, engineers, project managers, ASME welders, painters, assemblers and quality control technicians, the process skid manufacturers can produce reliable systems more efficiently than is possible in the field.
Reason #2 - Modular system is higher quality and more reliable
Modular fabrication performed in a controlled environment with proven manufacturing procedures by an experienced labor force results in a higher quality reliable finished product.
An experience engineer packager’s expertise in component selection, efficient design, factory acceptance testing, and equipment start up will provide customers with the highest quality reliable system.
Reason #3 - Modular System provides the shortest project schedule
In terms of productivity and delivery time, the efficiency of modular systems is a result of a controlled manufacturing environment where standard operating procedures are applied by an experienced staff. Plus you can design, build and test the unit without weather delays while the required site permitting is proceeding in parallel.
Reason #4 - Single source accountability for an IFS Modular system.
Engineering accountability is supported by a mechanical guarantee that insures the system meets the customer’s equipment requirements. Process accountability is supported by a process guarantee that insures the system meets the customer’s process requirements. If there should ever be a problem or question regarding a system, customers have only one number to call. Packager’s dedicated Customer Service Technicians provide immediate assistance by phone or email. If the problem cannot be resolved, packager will dispatch certified field technicians to your site.
Conclusion – So take another look at the process and the product. Site built systems cost more and are less reliable; schedule delays due to weather are minimized. If you need help, you place one phone call. No finger pointing.
