Project Development & Consulting

Project Development & Consulting

Phase One of a successful project is to assemble the right team and develop a scope that meets the project objectives.

We offer knowledge-based services that utilize actual experience to provide practical solutions for front end loading project phases.

Our broad expertise and experience help us analyze all aspects of a project during its initial development and provide cost-effective solutions that not only satisfy technical requirements but are safe and consider the operability and maintenance of the facility. Our background allows us to understand the challenges and risks of projects from an owner's perspective working through various options related to concepts, budgeting, construction and contracting strategies. While connecting to the clients specific needs and site characteristics.

Projects at oil refineries and industrial facilities pose complex technical and resource challenges that require a strong integrated team, good communication and a well-defined scope. Without proper planning from phase one, projects are destined to experience scope creep, miss deadlines and run over budget.

At Altura Engineering & Design, we are your Phase One specialists. Utilizing our broad technical expertise, we will work with you to perform a comprehensive examination of the full project lifecycle and consider all project variables such as construction, operations, maintenance, inspection and reliability in order to lock-in the scope, schedule and budget of your project. With this work completed at the front end, you can then step immediately into detailed engineering and design with the confidence that all aspects of the project have been taken into consideration and accounted for, therefore reducing scope creep, schedule delays and increased costs over the duration of the project.

Our goal is to not only provide you with the necessary information and supporting documentation to secure funding for your most important projects, but also to ensure your projects are set up for success.

Additionally, through our years of experience at oil refineries and industrial facilities we have developed relationships with some of the best minds in the business. This has allowed us to build a comprehensive network of consultants with a broad range of experience and expertise that are available to help at all levels of a project's life cycle. If we don't have someone available with the expertise that you need then we will utilize our networks to find that knowledge and insure that you get the person that you need to make your project successful.
