Process Plant Design and ConstructionWhether you’re developing or expanding an industrial plant, the process plant design and construction consultant brings value to your project. This is achieved by combining process plant optimisation and construction with optimisation in Australia. Combining experience in a wide range of sectors and applications with thorough knowledge, the process plant design and construction consultant should build a solution that satisfies your budget and deadline.

As a leading process plant design and construction consultant in Australia, SAROM GLOBAL’s expertise in process plant design and construction is complemented by a unique modular approach. Coordinating the whole span of the project, from equipment selection to construction management, is a difficult process in which we excel. SAROM GLOBAL’s highly experienced engineers and leadership ensure that every detail meets or exceeds your expectations, from pipe specs on every P&ID to managing subcontractors.

When compared to standard building schedules, SAROM GLOBAL’s process plant design tactics save an average of 24 per cent time. Your plant will be able to produce products sooner and at a lower cost.

Step 1: Front End Engineering for Process Plant Design

To begin, the process plant design and construction consultants will fully extract the project scope, identify potential challenges, and produce an in-depth project timeline. This is the first and most important step in the development of your plant.

The majority of businesses provide a basic quote that does not guarantee project success. Engineering detail is very crucial at the beginning of the project, according to an ideal plant process design and engineering business. A company that specialises in industrial plant process design and engineering puts in the necessary work upfront to deliver accurate preliminary pricing and a design that you can trust.


Companies often offer three levels of front-end engineering with each step demanding more engineering but yielding increasingly precise results. Quotes from the Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) include:

  1. The basic scope of the project
  2. Boundary limits
  3. +/-50% ROM Quote
  4. Refined Quotation
  5. +/- 15-5% estimate
  6. Project timeline
  7. Basic P&ID’s
  8. Equipment, instrument and valve list depending on financial quotes
  9. Fixed Bid Quotes
  10. Price to deliver the project (the fixed bid price)
  11. Project timeline
  12. Basic P&ID’s
  13. Equipment, valve list and instrumentation based on exact details
  14. Quotation peer review
  15. Technical review
  16. Additional customer-specified documents

Step 2: Detailed Process Plant Design

The first step in detailed design is to tighten up your project’s numbers and scope. Once a set bid price has been established, the following sequence of events will occur:

  • Re-evaluation in order to save even more time and money
  • Set important project deadlines and milestones.

Complete the modular industrial plant design, which includes:

  • Automation of processes
  • Design of mechanical and structural components
  • PFD’s
  • P&ID’s
  • Details of the foundation
  • Planning for shipment constraints
  • Models in 2D and 3D
  • System development in CAD
  • Any process modelling that needs to be done
  • Improvements to the drawing
  • Auxiliary perspectives
  • Elevation drawings in great detail
  • Detailed Plan illustrations
  • Specimens of general equipment and arrangements
  • Isometric illustration

Step 3: Equipment Procurement for Process Plant Design

The equipment for your project is ordered once the plant design engineers have completed comprehensive engineering. Long-lead-time equipment, as well as equipment that is critical to project milestones, is ordered first. Equipment is chosen based on the lowest overall lifetime cost rather than the lowest initial cost.

Side Step: Plant Safety and Failure Analysis in Australia

If your method demands any plant safety and failure analysis in Australia, it will be done during the design phase. The duration of the project is determined by your availability and the information required to finish the design.

Step 4: Industrial Plant Construction

In a modernised fabrication plant, industrial plants are built. The controlled, production-style setting results in a shorter build timetable, greater quality construction, and cheaper total modular fabrication costs. Plants should be built-in shops as modules while site improvements take place at your manufacturing facility, so parallel field enhancements occur at the same time as industrial plant development without interfering with each other.

Step 5: Installation and Commissioning

Modules are fully FAT tested and sent to your location for installation after off-site industrial plant construction is completed. Your new production plant will be installed by process experts who will ensure that it is mechanically and electrically integrated into your business. The punch-list, process hookups, and functional testing have all been finished and resolved. Your plant operators will receive comprehensive training on the entire system.
