Client Name: Schering Plough Pharmaceutical Company
MDC Systems® was retained by Schering Plough, a major pharmaceutical manufacturer, to evaluate the performance of the Architect/Engineer during design and construction of a multipurpose bulk pharmaceutical plant. MDC Systems® identified errors and omissions of the Architect/Engineer and analyzed the effect of delayed and incomplete design on construction costs and completion of the plant for a major international arbitration. Technical issues involved design and fabrication of major ductwork and piping systems.
MDC Systems® compared as-built conditions at the plant to the design using state-of-the-art 3D CADD modeling system to determine interferences between ductwork, piping, equipment, supports and the building structure. The analysis produced will include both technical analysis and schedule analysis using MDC Systems®‘ Time Impact Analysis (TIA®) technique to illustrate the impact of the technical issues on the construction schedule.
MDC Systems® produced an expert report and testified at the arbitration proceeding.
