Industrial Space Planning

Last year I was contracted by a manufacturer of plastic film packaging materials for the food industry, who asked me to create 3D models and drawings for a new production line.  Using SolidWorks, I modeled multiple different plant layout schemes.  These featured both new and existing equipment in their relative positions as well as the factory building itself.

The various layout options were evaluated by production management and the preferred one selected.  My 2D drawings were provided to construction contractors as the basis on which to develop their quotations for tender.

Originally this was to be a short contract of only a few weeks, however I continued working with the client over an extended period of time.

With the client’s permission, some of my work is shown below.
