JMK Engineering has the expertise to help you through all stages of your project cycle:
- Initial problem identification
- Design process
- Final commissioning
- Hand over of the project
Our focus is on helping you place a box around complex project objectives, to be able to source the experts in the specific fields, and manage the tasks to ensure that you receive the highest value project upon completion, satisfying all stakeholders involved in the project.
From a single building power system analysis to a multi-million dollar whole power plant hydro projects, JMK Engineering has worked on projects varying in size and complexity.
Quality Assurance for any project starts very early in the process. The first step is to establish the goals and values for the project, which will hold the weight of the rest of the project management and engineering process through all decision-making.
Some of the questions that will be answered at this stage are:
- What will establish a successful project?
- What order do these priorities fall: Cost, Reliability, Schedule?
- What is the targeted life span for the finished project, system, etc?
- What is more important upfront cost or life cycle cost?
With these questions answered – even before the preliminary budget is developed – the project team can deliver a project that everyone can be happy with in the end. Learn more.
Project Management – and JMK Engineering’s role – starts after the stakeholder goals have been developed. With these goals and project values in place, a project execution plan can be developed, acting as a baseline for the project. This plan will include: schedules, costs, and other metrics that will be measured throughout the project.
If you have internal processes that are used for reporting project process, these will be included in the execution plan. If not, we will be happy to provide suggestions that are in line with the size of your project. Learn more.
Design and Integration
The Design and Integration of the project is where most of the work, time, and costs lie. Decisions made during this stage of the process will not only affect the capital cost of the project, but typically – and more importantly – the operational cost of the project. JMK Engineering can provide a full support through in-house talent and strategic partners for a wide variety of project sizes and types. On a larger project, we would recommend looking at the large multinational engineering companies. In these cases, we will provide owners engineering support where we will interface with the main design team on a day-to-day basis, and provide integration support for any areas that are not covered in the prime contract.
With this model, you will get the best value for the project by leveraging the capacity of a large company, while still maintaining control of the outcome and project success that you would have with a smaller company. Learn more.
When the project areas up to this point have been properly executed, commissioning is the easiest part of the project.
When you engage JMK Engineering to assist with the commissioning of the final project, we will review the project goals and requirements mapped out in the initial project design, review the engineering design documentation, and design a test procedure that will test that all goals have been reached.
We work closely with management and operations to test the normal and foreseeable abnormal operations of the installation. The goal of commissioning is not only to ensure that the system works as intended, but to try and break the system with foreseeable configurations to ensure that the system behaves in a predictable, and repeatable manner. If one of these abnormal situations happen during production, we can make sure you have the least amount of down time as possible. Learn more.
Power System Analysis
A power system analysis is a great tool for any facility.
They are used throughout the design process to model the design and ensure that there are no abnormal situations that can be remedied during the design process. In an operational plant, a power system analysis is a tool that you use to develop and improve your electrical safety program, serve as an input to your energy management system, and assist capital projects find areas of the plant that can be used for expansion activities. It can also be removed based on plant operation reduction or successful demand management or energy efficiency project. Learn more.
