The utilities and infrastructure needs of manufacturing facilities within the chemicals and petrochemicals sector can be unique and demanding. Using our cross-disciplinary expertise, McLellan is able to provide innovative solutions for infrastructure aspects within manufacturing facilities, whether it involves the installation of new plant and equipment or the upgrading of existing infrastructure.

McLellan provides concept and feasibility studies leading to the design, specification, installation and supervision of both mechanical and electrical plant and equipment for utilities services infrastructure. We offer inspection and technical audit services designed to identify potential problem areas and highlight any deficiencies in the condition, efficiency or suitability of the existing equipment. Our engineers use industry standard software to assist in the design and analysis of complex systems.

McLellan offers advice and support on the maintenance schemes for the above, both to ensure effective operation and to meet codes and regulations such as:

We can also provide advice on meeting and complying with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015 as well as act as the Principal Designer (PD) on behalf of the client.

We operate within the framework of an environmental policy which embraces all aspects of design including minimising fuel consumption and emissions. This policy’s aim is to minimise any adverse effects of industrial infrastructure on the environment whilst providing a solution that successfully meets process requirements. McLellan can carry out energy management and carbon reduction studies to identify areas where improvements can be made with regard to energy consumption and carbon emissions. Our specialists also provide technical assistance to insurers during insurance loss investigations.
