Our Approach to Project Management

Genelco processes are executed following customized procedural scripts produced in-house by our technical writing staff. These scripts follow manufacturer’s guidelines and project specifications, ensuring every piece of equipment is able to fulfill its intended role. At the conclusion of commissioning, a detailed report is provided including a general summary, a listing of anomalies discovered, the scripted procedures and data sheets that were used, the data gathered, as well as any other supporting documentation collected and deemed pertinent to archive with the project report.

Genelco follows a scheme that we refer to as the, “5 + 2 Levels of Commissioning”. These Levels stem from industry accepted practices and are described below.
