Feasibility Study

Feasibility Study

Case Study : 800AMP LV Distribution Switchboard

Intelect were contracted by PPG to provide two 3D as-built models of Unit 1 and Unit 2.

The model was developed using point-cloud data captured via our Faro Focus 3D S70 Laser Scanner. Each unit of the factory was scanned over a period of four days including the external building which we provided the client with a hard copy of all scan data for future use.

The 3D models were then manipulated to provide 2D plans and elevations ensuring all new equipment and machinery fit within the working areas. We then introduced our pipework division to produce P&ID’s based on new layouts.

All machinery and equipment were provided via external customers, these included Dromont, Packland, Devree, Cimaco-solutions and more. This helped us achieve the best possible outcome to improve PPG’s current production rate.

Plant decommissioning and relocation

At Intelect, we are specialists in process plant decommissioning and relocation. Our plant relocation engineers are experts in their field, and will work with our clients around the clock to ensure the successful move of equipment, whether that be an individual machine, or a full factory relocation.

Our fully trained team of engineers, operators and support staff will work efficiently and safely ensuring production downtime is kept to a minimum. We provide in-depth planning prior to any project, and our innovative 3D surveying equipment provides fast and accurate measurements down to the millimetre, presenting you with a realistic and true to detail scan. From this single scan, we can develop an in-situ preview design of your site, which not only reduces health and safety risks, but also allows for clash detection, meaning we can spot potential problems before the process begins, saving valuable time and resources.

We are often asked by clients to refurbish existing equipment prior to relocation. Our specialised workshops span over 70,000 sq. ft of space, allowing our expert engineers to easily refurbish and maintain your equipment away from site, reducing the impact to your processes. Refurbishment also reduces the potential of any issues when it comes to the final installation, as all equipment is tested and inspected accordingly prior to leaving our site.

Our mechanical installation capabilities range from installing pipework, to relocating a process plant. At Intelect we have a wide range of skills and expertise across our workforce, enabling us to cater for any size project, across numerous industries.

Our locations across the country allow us to react quickly to our clients’ needs and requirements, and we are not just restricted to the UK, with our installations team having previously completed projects as far as Europe.

Our trained fitters and welders are experienced in working with stainless and carbon steels, exotic alloys and a wide range of plastics, working to the tightest of deadlines, within critical production areas.

All of our operatives are time served, and competent in many further health and safety accreditations, ensuring clients are provided with the best possible service. We conduct in-depth planning prior to any project, and can provide full PUWER assessments should it be required. Full CDM complied, with additional internal services available to cover.

To ensure ease of installation and total customer satisfaction, we can preassemble or trial run facilities in-house before they are transferred onto site either at our premises or virtually by scanning your facility and reproducing any installations in a virtual representation of your premises.

We are able to supply, manufacture and install:

  • Mezzanines and Gantries
  • Pipework, Vessels and Ducting
  • Supports and Pipe Bridges
  • Conveyor Systems, Elevator and Ancillary Equipment
  • Platforms and Access Structures
  • Storage Hoppers
  • Bespoke Projects

Our in-house Design team can support you with any size project, be that a small bespoke fabrication or a full production line complete with supporting structures. We specialise in hygienic design, specifically in the food industry, however we very commonly work within other varying sectors.


Autodesk Revit

Revit allows us to plan, design, construct and manage buildings with powerful tools for Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Autodesk Inventor

We use inventor to create professional-grade 3D mechanical designs, visualize and test product ideas. Everything from basic folded sheet metal parts, to complex 3D project assemblies. Inventor has the ability to integrate the use of different software platforms such as point clouds, step files, and many more to allow for a more accurate design outcome.

Autodesk Autocad

We use AutoCAD to allow us to draft and edit 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces and mesh objects, providing our clients with precise 2D and 3D drawings.

Autodesk Advanced Steel

Advanced Steel is a 3D modelling software for steel detailing, design, fabrication and construction. Through a combination of Advanced Steel and Revit, we are able to collaborate on the same 3D model, not only saving valuable time but also minimising any potential for errors.


When it comes to tackling complex design problems, we are flexible and efficient, as our expert team of in-house design engineers are proficient in the use of both Auto Desk, and Solid Works. Using Solid Works allows us to tackle the most complex problems with critical detail work, providing our customers with the most appropriate design solution.
