Glass Solutions

Major plant repair projects must achieve reliable production, quality product and ensure safe conditions.

To achieve these outcomes, float glass manufacturing owners must overcome significant challenges. Lean owner organizations, with staff spread across a fleet of plants, must manage additional project responsibilities. Strict corporate expectations for cost and schedule requirements must be met. Since major repairs are needed only every 15-20 years, even the most experienced plant staff may not have been involved in a major repair.

Our Approach

Our project teams integrate with operational managers and SME’s to support them where they need it the most. These integrated teams develop project scopes informed by commercial outcomes and protected from costly scope changes. Once developed, our project execution services ensure projects are run safely and effectively so that owners can be sure their plants begin production as scheduled.

Project Planning

Without a properly developed scope and plan, projects often encounter unanticipated circumstances. Reacting to these circumstances can be difficult and overwhelming. Late decisions can mean increased costs and lost production. Our team helps owners and their SME’s develop detailed plans and accurate estimates, so the team is prepared to execute the plan and better equipped to manage through unforeseen events.
