Starfire Energy Proposal



PROJECT MANAGEMENT – MANUFACTURING DESIGN & PLANNING (2) Both Jon Zimmerman & Erik Petersen bring certain expertise to this project that will expedite the timeline and mitigate future construction challenges. As it pertains to Jon’s capabilities, he’ll first observe and review Starfire’s existing operations in the pilot plant to develop an initial understanding of the functionality, processes, workflows, bottlenecks, environmental requirements and operational equipment used. During this time, he will collectively discuss the functionality and what has worked well, what hasn’t worked well, constraints, lessons learned, future operations, etc. Based on this initial understanding, Jon will work to: • Understand the operational requirements • Quantify the equipment and functionality of the process driven areas • Quantify assembly cells and associated crane requirements • Define future needs to be accommodated as a part of this effort • Define the movements of material, WIP, etc. • Define the operating environment for each area • Quantify storage and staging areas • Provide basic racking and floor pallet layouts to generally quantify pallet count • Provide basic layout for ancillary spaces such as QC lab, maintenance, etc. • Develop an office program (Excel spreadsheet) to define the office needs and provide one layout of the office areas to further refine the project cost. This information will help define the requirements and how the functional areas will be operationally arranged in the new facility. It is anticipated one building plan and one site plan will be derived defining the interior arrangement of equipment and

process flows as well as exterior equipment, yards, container storage, etc. These documents will be provided for review and approval by Starfire Energy. It is important to also note this work should be completed before the overall project commences. Typically an architect struggles to get through the detailed planning phase for the operational, functional, and process driven areas, however they charge a fee nonetheless for their efforts. Therefore, the scope and offsetting fee associated with this proposal would be expended regardless, but with significantly higher confidence, reduced risks, and offset costs utilizing Cushman & Wakefield. Jon’s typical order of operations are as follows: Collecting Base Information It is assumed equipment CAD files will be provided for all process and assembly equipment for C&W’s use. Once received, Jon will convert these CAD files and create CAD blocks for his use during the workshops. Starfire Energy will provide the required infrastructure for a single point of connection for all equipment or functional area. This will be included in a utility matrix provided by Starfire Energy. Programming Jon will meet with appropriate representatives of Starfire Energy to discuss the requirements, functionality, and overall operations of the operational areas. In addition, he will work to understand the goals, phasing, and functional needs for each area and how they interrelate. From this, he will develop an understanding of the operational requirements and how the functions and equipment will be accommodated. Jon will coordinate a time with Starfire Energy to observe the existing operations. This allows him to understand the processes more completely, how the operational areas function, what equipment is used, distribution of utilities, staging and movements of WIP, crane pick requirements, required adjacencies, etc.
