Three quick questions
1. What are the biggest challenges when planning a new production facility?
“The biggest challenge for us is usually working in new cultures and environments. It is important to understand the surroundings and local circumstances, as well as the needs of our client.”
2. What are the most rewarding bits in the work of the project engineering department?
“It’s always interesting to learn about different cultures and work in changing circumstances. The most rewarding thing is a satisfying result achieved through mutual understanding and cooperation with the client. Once, I was in a meeting with a client who wanted changes in the first sketches. I contacted our team and the next morning we had the updated documents ready. The client was very happy with this flexibility and efficiency. We got the first plans approved during the same trip and the project went on schedule.”
3. What kind of preparation do you expect from the clients?
“We expect open communication and solid cooperation among experts in all relevant fields, such as structural engineers and production managers. Getting the best possible result should be the target from start to finish. The better we communicate at the beginning, the easier it is to create a good working solution.”
