production, logistics, buildings and IT from one source
Let us save you time and costs, and minimize risk. We’ll help you avoid efficiency concerns, and complete your project successfully, on schedule and within budget. When you work with us as your lead consultant, you receive a comprehensive planning solution that embraces all the specialist disciplines required in an industrial environment. We go beyond the classic lead consulting remit of construction projects to combine the areas of production, logistics, IT with building and infrastructure planning.
Our project management expertise brings together all the required German and international industry procedures (VDI, HOAI, AHO, ISPE, etc.) to seamlessly process your overall project. Our experienced project managers ensure a smooth project flow, giving you the following advantages:
• Monitoring of construction progress and quality for a positive project outcome • Coordination of deliveries and supply for efficient implementation • Controlling of approval processes to ensure smooth, goal-oriented project progress • Ensuring construction site safety at all times • Effective resolution of problems and conflicts for successful project development
Minimization of time and costs with holistic planning
Quality assurance by monitoring and coordinating compliance with industry standards
Improving efficiency by coordinating all planning services. This ensures that all work is carried out smoothly and efficiently and that there are no undue delays
Minimization of risk by ensuring compliance with originally agreed contracts and schedules
Reducing interfaces and improving synergies through interdisciplinary teams
Digitally integrating planning results through BIM methods
Starting with initial strategic considerations, we develop your supply chain through network planning and value-stream mapping. We support you in creating, formulating, and reviewing the business case. We are the experts at your side for economic and technical evaluation when searching for and deciding on a location.
To make well-informed further investment decisions it is necessary to develop a coordinated concept based on a variety of potential solutions. The most efficient solution will then be derived from a master plan based on production, logistics and IT concepts.
Detailed planning is required to further develop the final solution into a real project ready for approval. We help you make the required preparations and support you in all aspects up to that approval.
This stage is all about helping you coordinate all services and trades necessary to implement the project, and identify the respective contractors. In the run-up we will draft the execution plan for the implementation and control and monitor it in the follow-up.
We manage all implementation services at your site from handover through the various construction phases to commissioning. The stage of implementation is focused on integrating all services up to the point of approval of the final construction.
We accompany the ramp-up of your investment project to target performance and beyond. The well-rehearsed interplay of building, mechanical engineering, IT, and organization guarantees success for a steep ramp-up curve. At the same time, we help you manage all infrastructural warranty issues.
As a result of its steady growth, Rasting is working with io to plan a new building to produce its meat and sausage range, as well as other ready meals and delicatessen products.
Erbe partnered with io to launch its “erbe 4.i – we continue to develop” construction project, with the aim of expanding its production site in Rangendingen with a center of excellence for medical technology instruments.
LTS called on io’s expertise in consulting and planning to act as lead consultant for the project from initial concept to planning, tendering, supervision of implementation, and final approval.
io has the role of lead consultant, taking over concept planning, detailed planning, tendering and awarding, and implementation.
io developed a building design, material flows and hygiene zoning, and evaluated alternative implementation models, taking account of future developments and efficiency needs.
