Feasibility study
Through feasibility studies, Seureca assesses options and scenarios prior to the project, identifying the best solution which combines compliance with technical requirements, budget, and asset-cost forecast throughout the whole project lifecyle.
Preliminary design
Preliminary designs provide the client with infrastructure operating specifications, plans drawn up for selected solutions, as well as cost and work scheduling. This addresses the legal, regulatory, and environmental issues related to the construction of the asset. In the case of work situated on operating sites, a service continuity and safety analysis can be performed.
Detailed design
Detailed design of the infrastructure provides all the technical information required for the tendering process. On the basis of established design criteria, Seureca performs thorough technical calculations, prepares detailed work drawings, draws up the technical specifications, bills of quantities (BOQ), and confidential cost estimates. Detailed design generally also includes a breakdown of the workload into contract packages, tentative construction planning, and preparation of the tender documents.
Tender preparation
It is critical for both public sector and industrial clients to prepare relevant and precise calls for tender to obtain the best money-value versus project delivery. Therefore on behalf of clients, Seureca prepares tender documents with detailed technical specifications concerning the envisioned work, the contractual aspects, results, deliverables, and deadlines expected from a selected contractor.
Assistance with tender evaluation and contract finalization
Seureca carries out technical and financial tender evaluations. Our clients are assisted with all technical and financial negotiations to ensure the most value from the contract.
Works supervision
Seureca supervises work through project completion on behalf of its clients to ensure the anticipated results. Periodic progress meetings and inter-company coordination meetings are organized to monitor progress, and if necessary, update plans. Seureca also provides schedule control and active coordination on the worksite.
Testing, commissioning and official project handover
This is an important stage in complex installations such as water, wastewater treatment plants, and waste and energy infrastructures. It consists of supervising the verification tests to prove an installation operates correctly (dry-runs, tests per functional unit, and test phase for the entire plant), thus enabling the official handover.
