As a General Contractor, PLANNET offers over 25 years of experience planning, designing, constructing and commissioning complex technical facilities. If the building is critical to your mission, we have the experience to ensure a successful project outcome.
PLANNET provides full design-build ‘turnkey’ project delivery, or we collaborate with the team in other delivery methods:
- These include design-assist (we perform detail design onsite), constructing designs detailed by others or performing as Construction Managers (CM) or CM-at-risk; (facilitating guaranteed maximum price and schedule) alongside general contractors;
- In addition, we protect and advocates for owners in owner’s rep roles, collaborating with design and construction teams.
PLANNET’s expertise goes beyond the typical construction outfit, providing clients with in-depth, thoughtful and thorough assessments of the facility infrastructure. Benefits of this approach include:
- Reducing risk of incident and failure in live data center work;
- Early identification of costly issues inherent in any construction project.
Most contractors can routinely design and construct green-field or brown-field facilities, improve shell spaces, and add separately demised sections onto existing structures. However the real challenge when designing critical facilities is assessing, designing, constructing, phasing & sequencing, commissioning, cutover & migrating in and around live, 24/7 connected equipment, where significant risk of shutdown is not acceptable. PLANNET’s extensive critical facilities experience means we know how to manage successful delivery in high-stakes environments. Whether directly performing onsite activities or selecting and managing trades and vendor technicians, PLANNET brings proven processes to focus on diligent adherence to procedures.
Construction or maintenance activities of any kind in a live, critical facility often requires the careful development and execution of Method of Procedure (MoP) documentation. PLANNET brings a proven process to developing, reviewing, revising, and flawlessly executing MoPs.
