PROjEN complete significant investment in Autoplant
PROjEN, the award winning Project Management Company based at Northwich, Cheshire, has invested significant resources in the installation of a specialist software package that will increase the company’s efficiency in designing 3-D plant layouts for its base of world class clients.
The sophisticated 3-D modelling package will enable PROjEN to layout plant and route piping much faster in a 3-D environment and will allow clients to walk around the model using the software’s explorer module and review proposed plant layouts.
Auotoplant is a database driven design tool which offers considerable advantages when undertaking larger management projects. The process line list can be linked directly to the piping database such that the pipe design data from the line list will appear automatically on the isometrics. This means that if the insulation requirement changes on the process line list, Autoplant will recognise this change and update the model removing or adding insulation where necessary.
John Taylor, Managing Director at PROjEN said, “We have seen a real upturn in sales in recent months as a result of our strategy of investing in new systems, equipment and staff. Autoplant was just one of our planned projects and it is set to revolutionise the way we design, plan and execute a wide variety of critical projects, with significant cost benefits for all parties involved. The process will improve client involvement which will undoubtedly increase communications and reduce the time it takes for projects to be completed”
PROjEN, specialists in the design and implementation of project managed services, has embarked on a number of investment projects since recording the highest sales figures for over 4 years. The company already works with some of the leading food and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the UK including GlaxoSmithKline and recently won the ECI Active project of the year award for 2004.
