As part of Technical Client services, UKey-Engineering conducts audits of land plots.
Any investor would like to know what costs he will bear buying a land plot and what risks he may incur when realizing the investment project in the pre-design phase.
A land plot audit includes:
• checking for any limitations and orders existing for the land plot;
• checking for possibility of relocating utility lines outside the construction footprint;
• checking for any existing sanitary protection zone;
• analyzing the cost and possibility of tying in to utility lines;
• checking for any existing airport limitations;
• calculating the cost of demolishing (dismantling) of any existing structures;
• making sure the title to the land to be used for building construction is clean.
In realizing construction projects, the operation and technical department is responsible for the set of issues connected with compliance of the completed facility with ‘design documentation’, which, in turn, is confirmed by correspondent as-built documentation reflecting the course and quality of completed construction-and-assembling and start-up operations.
UKey-Engineering experts are ready to perform a set of works for preparing and submitting a full package of as-built documentation for commissioning a facility according to the schedule both during and after construction-and-assembling operations.
The services include:
• developing an acceptance procedure for as-built documentation for the construction project and having it approved by parties responsible for accepting and signing that documentation;
• analyzing the master schedule to determine the order of acceptance documents preparation based on the itemized list of facilities;
• making the Acceptance Document List and having it approved
• making reports and as-built drawings to form as-built documentation for construction-and-assembling operations completed on the project;
• making and filling in the work log using working documentation;
• checking submitted documents for compliance and completeness to confirm quality conformance of construction-and-assembling operations performed (passports, certificates, material quality certificates, as-built drawings, working drawings bearing a stamp of compliance of the work performed to the design, contractors’ access documents, etc.)
• providing designer’s change control;
• making a list of signed and completed as-built documentation. Making a report on the as-built documentation generation progress for the Customer;
• participating in final acceptance of the completed project and putting it into operation.
