AutoCAD drafting, for example, is used to highlight conflicts and site difficulties prior to construction start and provides accurate record drawings upon project completion. Our accounting and cost control systems are designed to meet the specific needs of each project and to produce straightforward and accurate reports on costs to date and costs to complete. Scheduling systems deliver conceptual and detailed analyses and manpower projections with on site activities.

With constantly changing market conditions, technological shifts and environmental challenges, we look to technology to constantly analyze our activities and process on our job sites and in our office. This not only helps us ensure we are providing "value-added" service, but assists us in continuous quality improvement. Our management and technical skills and approach to installations enables us to take advantage of opportunities to work on multifaceted and varying complexity leveled projects. Our objective is to use our expertise, experience and resources for maximum benefit to the client.

Special Projects

Rigid challenges require flexible thinking. Special projects are just that – special. They require thinking outside the box. Sometimes it involves phasing the project over time or accelerating it into a short window, requiring alternative solutions. A project can involve complex construction techniques or working in remote or unusual locations. We often work in occupied prime manufacturing facilities, so we need to minimize disruptions to our clients. It is also a priority to keep the public safe while process production is in place and ongoing.

Special Projects is tasked with the implementation of projects demanding integrated, multidisciplinary, and creative approaches to address design issues and budget constraints.
