Design and engineering of quarry installations
Facility design, also called Engineering
As part of your aggregates production activity, our Technical Studies Office offers design and manufacturing services for custom-made facilities in order to meet your needs and allow productivity adapted to the deposit and the processing of the raw material in products.
Key steps in a fixed facility design
A facility design project, whether for a quarry, a sandpit, recycling, etc., is made up of four key stages:
- Engineering: this first stage involves the study of the project in which the correct layout of the circuits (flowsheet) is defined. The choice of parts and materials that will make up the facility comes next, as well as the equipment manufacturing plans. Our Technical Studies Office also draws up precise specifications with manufacturing listings, nomenclatures and technical instructions for each piece of equipment. Once this has been done, our Technical Studies Office conceptualizes the facility via plans and a layout.
- Manufacturing and assembly: Through this second step, we buy the project equipment from our renowned suppliers and manufacture the parts that must be made to measure. This manufacturing work is carried out in our workshops. Once this is done, our technicians assemble the equipment for the future facility.
- Delivery and assembly: After the assembly stage is the on-site delivery. All the equipment is transported by truck to the site of the future facility. Following delivery, our team of technicians assemble the facility by following the elements defined in the specifications.
- Commissioning and tests: After the assembly of the fixed facility, our technicians commission it. They perform all the tests to check that everything matches the flowsheets. To ensure the proper functioning of the fixed facility after it is commissioned, our technicians assist and train the customer’s teams.
Once the facility is commissioned, our teams continue their customer support via our Customer Services to be able to respond to our customers quickly and efficiently in case of breakdowns or the need for parts.

We also offer modifications or upgrades to your existing fixed facilities to allow you to increase the production of your plant, or even when the basic or finished product must be different from the current ones.
