Results delivered to client    

P&ID’s were developed and reviewed with the client. Process hazard analysis was conducted complying with Process Safety Management. Detailed cost estimating was performed to support the project funding process. 3D model reviews were held with the client at 30, 60 and 90 percent during detailed design that allowed for easy translation of design intent with the client. Laser scanning was performed to obtain locations of piping tie-in locations. Issued construction bid packages supported an accelerated construction schedule. This project was recognized by IPA within the client organization.
