Successful industrial design and engineering is a process which looks at the desired outcome and then uses a holistic approach to combine location, capital investment, labor costs, productivity and production requirements, life-cycle and operating costs to provide the Owner with a total package that will meet the needs for the expected life of the facility.

A prerequisite to success is for the design staff to be constantly exposed to innovations and new developments across all phases of many different industries including process control, intelligent systems, and machinery. Our in-house staff of mechanical engineers is constantly designing new solutions across the many facets of each project. The resultant innovations developed are applied across a wide range of industries by our team of civil and structural engineers in close coordination with the industrial architects.

Our Engineering Contract Methods


High quality industrial design and engineering is an important factor in successful design-build contracts as the Owner must be presented with options on design, construction methods, machinery, finishes, and schedule to achieve the required goals in the targeted time frame. Our design-build approach to project delivery allows for schedule-effective and budget-defined completion of projects with the advantage of single-source efficiency.

EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction).

The other common solution for larger, more complex projects that may require significant process engineering or manufacturing process development is to deliver the project via an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract. This format can also incorporate commissioning (EPCC). In the EPC process, the Owner and the EPC contractor collaborate together to clearly define performance requirements of the finished installation, scope of work for the contractor, as well as the quality requirements (ISO/ASTM etc.) for the project. The contractor is then responsible for final engineering, production guarantees, procurement of agreed equipment, design, and assembly of specialist equipment, civil works, building works and mechanical and electrical installations. The EPC contractor works under an agreed upon formula with the Owner covering overhead and profit. The Owner is thus provided with an installation that meets their precise project requirements at a very competitive cost with a reduced construction period.

Creating innovative and practically-engineered facilities, Robert Ober & Associates, LLC ensures leading quality in every project, regardless of the type of contract chosen.
