Running a restaurant and Brewery simultaneously is no easy task. To be successful, the brewery equipment must be aesthetically appealing, safe to operate, have a minimal impact on restaurant operations and flow, and be capable of the producing top quality and flexible beer styles. DME has fabricated, installed and commissioned over 200 Brewpubs internationally, some of which have received international acclaim for the beers produced on a DME system.
DME has the capabilities to design and fabricate the brewing vessels, as well as site build out, project management, start up and commissioning and brewer training.
DME's approach to each project has been designed to offer our customers the opportunity to capitalize on DME's expertise and to establish an avenue for close communication to ensure proper planning is completed on the front end of the project. This extra planning ensures correct and detailed system configuration, provides concrete P & ID drawings and utility drawings to get a clear estimate of site buildout and commissioning costs, and to explore system configuration options which could reduce total brewery equipment expenditures. In summary, proper planning on the front end can save 10 - 15% of project costs resulting from unknown variables.
The DME Project Plan
Following are the steps DME follows once a project is commenced.
1. Assignment of a Project Manager
Our Project Manager will review your concept, design, sizing and layouts. At this stage we will review your drawings (if available) or we will make available a generic drawing layout for the size and scope of brewing operation you are considering.
2. Process flow development
This will include such things as pump and heat exchanger sizing, pipe sizing, steam, cooling, and electrical requirements and instrumentation options.
DME will review the level of automation required and make recommendations based on the unique demands of your business plan. Specifications on automation equipment will be made available to you.
4. Customized schematic / utility AutoCAD drawings
DME's engineering department will provide customized utility drawings to assist with site development and subcontractor support and allow you to get a number of build out bids. These drawings will be based on your site drawings and site inspection details.
5. Customized fabrication drawings
Before fabrication begins, DME will provide the customer with proposed fabrication drawings for all of the fabricated equipment. The equipment will be engineered with consideration to DME’s high quality standards and for guaranteed operational efficiencies and performance targets. The customer will have the opportunity to sign off on all of these drawings before fabrication begins.
6. Project status
The Project Manager is responsible for all aspects of your project within DME. He is your one point of contact for any questions you may have regarding the on-going status of your project.
7. On-time delivery
DME will give you an estimated shipment date when you place an order. Every effort will be made to honor this shipment date.
8. Strong post sales support
DME has been producing brewery equipment for over 15 years and has several employees with over 10 years of experience. We pride ourselves in being able to support our customers long past the brewery commissioning date.
