Abstract
A new brewery project involves several specific disciplines to design, build, and install specialist process equipment in a new or existing building. This requires communication, coordination, and cooperation between the brewery project team and the main contractor(s) fulfilling the process engineering and civil, structural, and architectural engineering roles to safely come together to realize the project. This article focusses on the construction and commissioning stages of a brewery project from the perspective of a main contractor. These are both crucial stages of the project life cycle and invariably create health and safety risks, which need to be managed and mitigated by competent and safety-conscious teams. The goal of the article is to raise awareness of best practices around health and safety during construction and commissioning by offering some practical considerations to the reader to contemplate for their next brewery project.​
