4 Ways Modular Systems Cut CostsSource: Integrated Process Engineers & Constructors Inc. (IPEC)

A primary goal of any customer, when building new or adding equipment to an existing facility, is the ability to source equipment at the lowest and most economical cost possible — while still maintaining a high level of quality. Modular system suppliers, who provide turn-key systems, have the necessary design, engineering, management, and fabrication capabilities to properly do so. Internal engineering and construction procedures are developed to expedite the design, fabrication, and management aspects of a project, and are constantly refined to minimize the overall time from project kick-off to start-up and commissioning. Saving time equates to saving money when sourcing and building equipment. A reduction in the overall length of a schedule consequently reduces the cost of the project.
In this installment, we will review some of the many ways in which cost savings can be realized when building a modular system.
