Our project engineering and consulting service includes a facility characterization, vulnerability analysis, threat assessment, and development and implementation of countermeasures.
Preliminary Design and Technical Specifications
The key service here is the development of conceptual flow charts, block diagrams, design sketches and schematics, single-line diagrams, equipment configurations and room layouts for the installation of equipment and ancillary items.
As part of Preliminary Design and Technical Specifications, we will also evaluate available technologies and equipment to suit your specific needs and then prepare bid specification documents for use in obtaining competitive bids for the supply and installation of your systems.
Technical Bid Analysis
Technical bid analysis is a critical part of risk management: it affords you an objective comparison of bids. We also provide written recommendations on the best-of-breed items that most cost effectively meet your goals.
Pre-Installation System / Equipment Testing
Evaluation of applicable vendor submitted systems for pre-installation test procedures is a critical part of risk management. TVA can provide this, along with the technical coordination and assistance required for system and component pre-installation testing at the factory.
Integration of Systems and Disciplines
Coordinating activities between the architect, engineer, and owner can present significant challenges. When installing integrated systems, TVA can ensure proper coordination of activities relevant to other building systems, schedules, and construction activities. We also review, critique, and evaluate vendor submissions and shop drawings.
