Scope of Services & Disciplines

Our Services

Our consultants are a single source for your support services planning.

The Schachinger Group (TSG) provides its clients with integrated studies, analysis, designs, training and implementation of your basic operational and physical support elements to allow you to concentrate on your primary business. Our consultants work with our clients to analyze and then establish the type and depth of services required of the inter-related Materials Management, Materials Handling, Waste Management, Vertical and Horizontal Transport and Central Sterile Supply. This Functional Programming effort sets the requirements for the Space Program, and then the final competitive designs that will allow your support departments to function as needed, as planned and as expected. The data utilized in performing these studies and the information outcomes are integrated into the final Waste Management, Vertical Transport and Materials Handling designs to help ensure the needs of your operations are fully supported by the facility’s transport and disposal systems.

The Schachinger Group has been providing lean, green, evidence based planning, design and implementation since 1984.

Peer Review & Project Consultation

Peer review is a process where we look over the work done by others for accuracy, completeness, technical correctness and appropriateness for the intended purpose.

Peer review helps save you time and money. We can help you find any potential oversights or issues ahead of time before it becomes difficult to make changes. Because of the level of expertise required, this needs to be done on a very professional level, based on facts, accurate calculations, and/or other solid provable evidence — never on opinions.

This is where our many years of experience can help you.
We offer peer review and project consultation as a service.
Please contact us for rates.
