Identification of Core Deliverables
A review of the critical project outputs are assessed to determine the fundamental roots of the solution. Typically, this would include specified noise reduction parameters, but could also include site-specific complexities that must be incorporated into the final design.
Understanding Risk and Accountability
An in-depth risk evaluation is conducted to demonstrate all areas of considered accountability when executing the intended scope of work. By design, this process drastically reduces the risk of scope oversight and blurred lines of accountability during the implementation stages.
The design intent is crafted to accommodate both the core deliverables and the desired risk transfer by the client. The solution can be boiled down to standard delivery of components required to address just the fundamental project outputs (i.e. “just fix my noise problem”). Conversely, systems can be designed to achieve a more complete, site integrated solution. System modularization and structural integration are key examples of increased design accountability.
With the ability to self perform all engineering, manufacturing, and implementation services, Parklane aligns the details of the final execution with the customer’s resource limitations. From basic design and component supply to complete turnkey project management and implementation, Parklane’s final solution is guaranteed to seamlessly integrate with specific project requirements.
To ensure the integration of a noise or vibration solution functions as an integral part of the mechanical system, Parklane performs a complete analysis of the mechanical sources in question, identifying specific operating parameters that must be addressed in the final solution (i.e. airflow, air temperature, static pressure, etc.). If specific system details are not readily available for units currently in operation, Parklane can provide onsite testing services to establish true operating conditions.
All PMA Solutions are designed to seamlessly integrate into the existing site environment. A thorough site assessment is therefore completed to ensure all site conflicts are addressed to facilitate the successful implementation of the noise or vibration solution. For new projects, Parklane’s BIM Integration Service provides precise conflict resolution through the seamless sharing of PMA Component Models.
Functionality and Lifecycle Cost Review
Standard maintenance protocols on base mechanical systems must be clearly understood to avoid extensive added lifecycle costs when incorporating aftermarket noise controls. A detailed functionality assessment is performed on each system to ensure that critical maintenance procedures and relevant industry standards are accommodated in the final design.
Depending on the size, position and geometric orientation of the noise solution, added structural support (or integration to an existing structural system) may be necessary. Parklane provides in-house engineered design of independent structural support systems and foundations for new noise control solutions, including detailed connection design to existing sub-structures.
When aesthetic appeal is critical, PMA Noise Control Solutions can be designed to architecturally blend with existing building façades, finish on integrating mechanical systems, and other architectural elements. The importance of aesthetic appeal is discussed during preliminary stages to align both cost and architectural expectations. Detailed 3D Architectural Renderings can be produced by Parklane’s design team to provide a true vision of the final design concept.
BIM Integration and Detailed Site Modelling
To ensure the seamless integration of a PMA Noise Control Solution to an existing or proposed site arrangement, Parklane will produce a detailed site or component model at the onset of the detailed design stage. Base models are generated through cutting edge site measurement practices or integration with a project’s BIM Model.
To align with evolving Lean Construction methodologies, Parklane executes Modularized System Design in a variety of applications. This methodology drastically reduces field implementation time, and onsite trades and equipment congestion.
Integral Structural Design
To accommodate various environmental load cases, PMA Noise Control Solutions can be delivered to site with engineered structural support built integral to the system. This can include detailed analysis and subsequent design of connection to base structure. All structural engineering is completed with Parklane’s in-house design team using a combination of first-principles design and computational modelling methodologies.
Functional integration of a PMA Solution to an existing system is a core fundamental design principle. Considerations such as service access, component removability, and cleanability, can be incorporated to ensure negligible post-installation life cycle costs.
Turnkey Installation and Site Management
As solutions become more complex, Parklane’s field installation team can be deployed to any project requiring specialized trade’s expertise. Parklane’s field installation team is fully certified under all mandated OHSA requirements, and trained for: rigging, high reach, hot work, and Type II asbestos operations.
