Thorough planning and preparation will help your project run smoothly, keep costs down and optimise productivity. We offer a range of pre-engineering services, from feasibility studies to modelling, basic design and specifications to ensure your projects get off to the best possible start.
Preparing a new project requires careful planning and consideration.
Fives’ experts conduct thorough feasibility studies to define market needs and local constraints. This will consider factors such as glass colour, local regulations, raw material and energy availability. Drawing on our broad experience in the glass industry, both in supply and support functions, we will prepare a market assessment, draw up a financial plan, write a business plan proposal and complete ROI evaluation.
Basic stages of the feasibility study:
- Market research: assess market requirements; evaluate the competition; analyse logistics
- Applying localized knowledge: undertake site survey, logistical and raw material management; assess regulations, tax, manpower, trade barriers
- Investment cost breakdown: evaluate CAPEX and OPEX
- Financial optimization and financial sources
We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions, so modelling enables us to design the ideal project layout for you. Our experts use advanced mathematical and physical modelling techniques to determine production capacity and select the most relevant technologies.
To build a solid business plan you must have the basic project design, estimated energy consumption and emission levels. We can draw up specifications on your behalf to conduct precise tendering and site surveys to minimise project risks and secure the overall budget.
