Whether it’s implementing a building system for a state-of-the-art facility, constructing a new hydroelectric generating station, or rolling out a new industrial process, our mechanical engineers take an idea and turn it into reality. Our experience tells us cookie-cutter solutions are rarely the way to ensure mechanical systems perform and coordinate optimally. Every project deserves a fresh look and a custom solution backed by our extensive expertise. From design through commissioning and maintenance, we care enough to do it right.

  • slurry piping/pumping
  • offshore piping

We are an essential team member in fast tracking your projects. Our specialists can deliver piping isometric, spool and pipe rack drawings, support systems and 4D planning for all types of large-scale industrial piping projects. We can also design all of the heat tracing and cooling systems required for your piping projects.

Material Handling

With many industrial and processing development projects, an understanding of material handling is key to the successful implementation, operation and maintenance of a facility. We can help you with:

  • pneumatic conveyors
  • drag conveyors
  • belt conveyors
  • dust collection
  • screw conveyors

Instrumentation and Controls

Along with our electrical instrumentation group, we can meet all of your instrumentation and control needs, including:

  • process instrumentation such as pressure, level, temperature, flow, speed, position, etc.
  • analyzers to monitor pH, free & residual chlorine, conductivity, turbidity, etc.
  • commissioning of instruments
  • gas monitors for hydrogen, carbon-dioxide, carbon-monoxide, methane (or other combustible gasses), hydrogen-sulphide, etc.
  • environmental monitors for humidity, temperature, etc.

Control Systems

Our team is well versed in a variety of control systems such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), distributed control systems (DCS), human machine interface (HMI) systems, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems.  Our expertise includes:

  • PLC platforms including Allen-Bradley (ControlLogix, CompactLogix, MicroLogix, SLC-5, SLC-500, etc.), Schneider Electric (Modicon Quantum, M340, Momentum, etc.), Siemens (Simatic S7), General Electric (RX3i, 90-30) and others
  • DCS platforms including Emerson Delta-V, Emerson Ovation, ABB (Bailey) and Foxboro
