Many times owners choose to skip the engineering and design step of an outside professional. However, once the facilities are constructed, though they are fully operational, they are not as efficient as they could or should be. We also see projects where the facility is essentially a disaster, exhibiting all forms of inefficiencies and even worse, danger to the animals. This question is ultimately up to the owner to decide, but consider this; is saving the small cost of the PEDS worth the unrealized milk production and potential maintenance/operational costs from a faulty design over the span of the lifetime of the facility? Overall, the PEDS service offers the owner a “peace of mind” that an expert is involved in the design process and we are confident in saying that we can save you the cost of the PEDS before construction is realized.
