Sustaining Capital & Turnarounds

Executing projects since 1991

Your business is our business. 

Working seamlessly with your operation’s and maintenance personnel, our team of engineers, designers and support personnel are trained to provide engineered solution to de-risk your facilities and support your safety, profitability and operability goals.

We understand the challenges and complexities of executing projects in operating facilities and the necessity to minimize disruptions to your operations. Our team of professionals have hands on experience designing, procuring and constructing  projects in operating facilities

We can execute E, EP or C separately, but can also deliver a full project scope under an EPC delivery model that results in reduced interfaces and quicker time to market.  Our subject matter experts are well grounded in project execution fundamentals and have first-hand experience and an extensive execution toolkit to draw from to suit individual project size, needs and reporting requirements.

You can count on us to produce predictable and consistent results to satisfy your sustaining capital and turnarounds needs.

EPC Sustaining Capital Model

A new model a new direction

Bantrel has developed an industry first sustaining capital program that manages your entire suite of projects in an EPC environment.  This novel program has yielded first quartile performance including a three year TRIF of Zero, less that 1% field rework and projects that consistently meet their stated NPV

By managing the entire project lifecycle Bantrel can achieve results not realized in traditional sustaining capital models. Risk is managed through the entire project, at the appropriate milestone, and not passed to subsequent phases. Our gated process results in a cost effective execution that maximizes value and minimizes inefficiencies caused by multiple interfaces and competing objectives.

From project development through to commission, we will manage your entire sustaining capital program.

The philosophy of the program is based on the principle of construction led engineering which focuses on constructability and operability throughout the gating process. The program emphasizes first person accountability within a strong continuous improvement culture imbedded in a learning environment.
Bantrel is a data driven, learning organization striving for execution excellence with tangible results delivered. We have a standard approach to enabling innovation:

  1. We track and measure every facet of our current execution methodology, looking for and identifying areas for improvement. We work with our clients to look at best practices across industries.
  2. We evaluate new methods, introduce them and track/measure again, validating the change for effectiveness and cost/benefit.

We believe that unless you embrace the cycle of challenging conventional methods in a measured approach, meaningful innovation does not occur. Most importantly without a truly detailed measurement of each facet of execution you will often see changes entirely for the sake of change.

Our collaborative, alliance approach with captured in our Bantrel Portfolio Management Model has yielded a measurable improvement in project “performance to estimate”. The project portfolio typically consists of over 80 projects in various stages of development and execution. The sustaining capital program targets a portfolio of projects under $20M with the majority being in the $1M to $2M range.

All engineering and construction resources are modelled in our portfolio management tool insuring that the right resource is available at the right time. Resource gaps are identified and projects either moved to accommodate a consistent craft workforce or resource levelling that is planned in advance. Continuity of craft is a key determinant of project safety.

Portfolio Management

By managing the entire project lifecycle, Bantrel can achieve results not realized in traditional sustaining capital models. Risk is managed through the entire project, at the appropriate milestone, and not passed to subsequent phases. Our gated process results in a cost-effective execution that maximizes value and minimizes inefficiencies caused by multiple interfaces and competing objectives.

A typical portfolio consists of 40 to 80 projects in various stages of development and execution. The sustaining capital program targets a portfolio of projects under $20M with the majority being in the $1M to $2M range.
