Right-sizing your project for long-term success.

Gray’s integrated Planning services help customers define the specialized requirements and activities needed to achieve their project goals. While each engagement is unique, our approach typically involves a long-term partnership that involves helping customers site and build new facilities, validate and develop new product and process ideas, and realize greater production efficiencies.


Our projects begin with front-end loading, which could include a site search and analysis, capital budgeting, total cost of ownership analysis, and any number of feasibility studies tailored to your needs. During this preconceptual design phase, our team models potential outcomes and guides you through a stage-gate process to identify your requirements for throughput, labor, equipment, logistics, and any associated cost implications.


Our ability to collaborate with customers throughout the project lets us incorporate new requirements and information at designated milestones without disrupting the schedule. This methodical approach allows for budget transparency and stronger decision-making throughout the entire process—and ultimately produces a better customer outcome.
