Multi-Plant Building Condition Assessment and Benchmark Cost Analysis

 

Challenge:

 

Quebecor World International was facing a downsizing of production and operations. While site managers concentrated their efforts

on transfer of customer orders and equipment ,

EFS was contracted to perform a multi-plant  

building condition assessment and operations cost

analysis. The project was part of a re-structuring of

building maintenance and energy reduction to minimize

costs at selected sites throughout North America.

 

EFS completed a series of site inspections,

And developed a comprehensive facility assessment,

combining facility maintenance, energy and

engineering initiatives to provide an aggressive

operations and cost reduction program for seven QWI

locations totaling 3.5 million square feet.

 

 

 

 


Results:

 


Beginning in March 2006, the EFS maintenance operations reduction program was implemented to include sites in TN, CT, WI, and ON, QC in Canada. The program would provide a target savings of $701,000 during the first year of operation. Savings were derived from energy reduction initiatives, contract renegotiations, and

re-structured site  services.

 

The EFS initiative met or exceeded goals for the three year program

and provided QWI with documented results and reductions that

 total $2.5M  in 2008. Target reductions in excess of $3M were obtained

in 2009.

 

Progress was documented and verified by Quebecor staff on a monthly basis. EFS provided specialized systems and practices developed for plant closures to supply additional cost reductions.
