Step 2: Assess Project Feasibility Assess the viability of your project on the chosen site. You’ll need to conduct a thorough analysis that examines aspects such as optimal site layout, estimated costs, ad- herence to regulatory requirements, and the existing market demand. Ultimately, the study will help determine whether proceeding with the facility's construction is via- ble, considering potential benefits and risks. • Analyze topography to determine grading and earth- work requirements. • Evaluate soil composition for foundation design and stability. • Consider traffic flow and access points to optimize ma- terial movement. • Identify potential challenges such as site limitations, environmental impact, or regulatory constraints. • Assess project budget and timeline based on site-spe- cific factors. Step 3: Design And Planning Collaborate with a design-builder to expedite and streamline the planning process, creating a comprehen- sive blueprint for your facility in collaboration with equip- ment vendors. This blueprint should emphasize optimal layout, strategic equipment placement, streamlined mate- rial flow, and robust safety protocols, serving as a crucial reference during construction. Ensure your design aligns with your budget, operational needs, and desired timeline. • Develop a detailed layout that optimizes workflow and minimizes material handling. In a box plant, this layout is often built around the location of the corrugator. • Map out space allocation for both roll storage and fin- ished product inventory, ensuring efficient handling and accessibility within the facility's layout. • Determine the necessary utility requirements to oper- ate the facility's equipment and systems effectively. En- sure that there is a proper supply of natural gas for your boiler, enough power for all equipment, and adequate water pressure & volume for equipment (both the cor- CONTINUED ON PAGE 26
