How Our Feasibility Studies and Front End Design Create Value

At Matrix PDM Engineering, an open sky and big patch of dirt is, well, a land of possibility: the potential to build or expand an industrial plant, marine structure, material handling facility, natural gas processing facility, or tank farm.

Whether you need liquefied natural gas terminal construction; terminals or tanks for natural gas liquids such as ethane, ethylene, propane or butane; rail or truck loading or off-loading; marine structures; or other bulk material handling solutions. Our decades of experience have shown us that the most value is built at the initial stages of any project. So, we use feasibility studies and front end design (FEED) to help our clients define and plan projects, ensuring at the very beginning that the project will be viable and successful.

Whether our clients have selected a greenfield site, or are considering acquisition of an existing facility, Matrix offers expertise in the early stages that help our clients minimize risk and maximize value.

Then continue with “In the feasibility stage, we create conceptual designs and perform studies to determine facility configurations, site arrangements, inbound and outbound logistics, and expansion opportunities.

Using the best process technologies, identifying local code requirements, and coordinating with top equipment vendors and construction partners allows us to develop realistic execution plans, costs, and schedules while prioritizing budget and safety.

Once the feasibility study is complete, we bring your project to life intelligently with our FEED process. Working alongside project owners and operators, we develop the specific requirements that combine your vision and needs with our deep experience and industry insights. Ultimately, outlining every step of your project will help you avoid surprises and ensure accurate bids and progress throughout the build-out.

In every project development effort, we balance innovation with proven project execution systems, and we know from experience that the beginning stages of every project are the most pivotal. With our feasibility studies and FEED process, we can mitigate risks and lay the groundwork for on-time and on-budget deliverables, a strategy that continues to land us on lists of the top EPC firms in the US.
