Navigating Challenges in Lab Infrastructure Development: A Comprehensive Approach

Building a cutting-edge laboratory infrastructure comes with many challenges – spanning design, procurement, construction, and final commissioning. Kewaunee provides strategic solutions to navigate these hurdles, ensuring project success.  

Design and Engineering Phase: Precision Planning for Foundation Success  

Inadequate design due to evolving specifications and incomplete documentation poses a significant challenge in this phase.  

Kewaunee’s Phase 1 approach involves meticulous planning, concept analysis, and preliminary cost estimation, establishing a robust foundation for successful lab development. 

Procurement Phase: Addressing Commercial Complexities  

Challenges in stakeholder engagement, vendor selection, and delays in item delivery threaten project timelines and budgets.  

Kewaunee’s Phase 2, Preliminary Engineering, focuses on finalizing objectives, engaging stakeholders effectively, and making informed vendor selections to ensure a smooth procurement process. 

Construction Phase: Managing Quality and Timeliness  

Poor site supervision and control, late material delivery, and construction issues demand rigorous project management.  

Kewaunee’s Phase 3, Construction, involves mobilizing and managing construction forces, adhering to construction documents, and ensuring timely and quality construction. 

Commission, Qualification, and Validation: Achieving Operational Excellence  

The final phases deal with bureaucratic processes, safety compliance, and workforce issues during commissioning and validation.  

Kewaunee’s Phase 4 involves activities to achieve and demonstrate design performance levels, ensuring the laboratory functions optimally. 

Closing the Project: A Seamless Conclusion  

The last phase includes contractual and archival activities for a smooth project closure. Kewaunee ensures all aspects are appropriately concluded. 

In conclusion, lab infrastructure development poses diverse challenges, but Kewaunee’s comprehensive approach effectively mitigates these issues. By addressing challenges at each phase, Kewaunee ensures the successful and timely completion of laboratory projects.
