Sustainable Refurbishment for the Chemicals Industry

Sustainable Refurbishment for the Chemicals Industry

Companies in the chemicals industry have a substantial stock of buildings and plant. It often makes more sense to optimize existing laboratories and manufacturing and logistics buildings rather than build new ones, not only for ecological reasons but above all to save time. Drees & Sommer’s industry experts give you full support in dealing with this complex challenge.

What Challenges Do You Face?

  • You are faced with constantly changing requirements and processes, as well as ever-changing demand for products.
  • You have to carry out complex renovation and alteration works in existing laboratory, manufacturing and logistics buildings without disrupting daily operations.
  • You are about to embark on extensive projects to modernize, modify or replace your plant technology on the basis of the latest security standards.
  • You want to future-proof existing manufacturing or research buildings and plants that are ageing, reaching the end of their useful lives, or are affected by compliance requirements.
  • You are facing a considerable backlog of maintenance and repairs in properties and large plants.

Our Approach

As part of a tailored program approach and on the basis of a framework partnership contract, Drees & Sommer experts provide services right from the project initiation phase. These range from traditional program control and management to an all-embracing engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) approach for refurbishment. All necessary alteration and renovation works are carried out in close consultation with you – from planning through execution and commissioning, to handing over to the user.

Our priority is to provide active, targeted support for your individual construction project. First and foremost, this includes leading the project team effectively on the basis of an organizational structure customized and approved in advance – saving you, the client, a lot of time and effort. You have reliable and transparent information on the performance levels at all times, and the final decision will be yours. At the same time, you will receive expert advice on all aspects throughout your project.
