What does optimization really mean?  According to Wiki it is “acting to make the best or most effective use of a situation”.  What does this mean in relation to Design Optimisation ?

For nearly all vendors the only optimization they offer is what they build.  Is this really adding value to you or your clients?

EQ-House specialise in providing optimisation solutions that can win you more projects. E-House and Switchrooms packages are a D & C (Design & Construct) solution, and you need to be able to show you can do it better than your competitors. 

The EQ-house approach to optimization is fundamentally bespoke, we take your equipment data and clients layouts and give you what you need.    We have helped clients with solutions that are technically optimised, safer and more cost-effective, dramatically improving their bid to order strike rate.

The EQH optimized layout will have:

  • Improved Equipment Arrangements (Advice on equipment access requirements and cable reticulation)
  • Potential to break your building into modules in accordance with the equipment arrangement
  • Reduction in the building footprint 
  • Reduction in the building footprint allows for a safer location of HVAC packaged systems (Advice on HVAC systems)
  • Compliance to clearances that specifically relate to your equipment and relevant global standards
  • Improved Logistical potential

Our team applies the knowledge gained over the years in the E-house and Switchroom industry from lessons learnt in the design & construction business (Direct Manufacturing of e-houses in Australia) along with working with the best OEM’s & EPC’s globally.  We understand your needs.

Here are 3 reasons why you should consider including an optimised solution with your tender?

  1. Offer something bespoke so the client wants to talk about your solution and not just your price;
  2. Show your solution is compliant with Best Practice, Codes & Standards;
  3. Deliver a solution that offers functional intent; that is more compact and cost-effective.

In a recent global project working with our client, we were able to reduce the footprints of more than 15 Very large E-Houses by as much as half carving 10’s of millions of $USD out of the building cost and shipping.

Our offices in Australia and Singapore can support you globally on Estimation, Design, Execution and Vendor strategies.   Engage with EQ-House and let us support you.
