Drafting and Design Engineering Consultants

Our drafting and design engineering consultants are experts in planning and creating 2D and 3D models for your industrial infrastructure assets.

Transparent Drafting and Design Engineering

An integral part of our comprehensive integrated engineering services, our drafting and design teams specialize in three related disciplines:

  • Civil Structural
  • Electrical, Instrumentation, Controls
  • Piping

The evolution of computer-aided drafting (CAD) and design technology has revolutionized the conceptualization of construction projects.

But while our designers use the latest computer software and drafting technology, their greatest asset is between their ears. No CAD program can replace the decades of project experience you get with our team.

And with our truth-based industrial engineering approach, you’ll be able to check on our progress in real-time. Our product designers work within a shared digital engineering environment to give you complete transparency. This allows you to track the technical drawings or solid modeling whenever you want.

Civil Structural

Our civil drafters work closely with our civil engineering team to generate 3D modeling specifications and standard details. The group also produces and reviews 3D models and 2D drawings based on designs from our multi-discipline engineering teams. Sometimes the designs for the steel and concrete structures or buildings begin with freehand sketching.

The team uses CAD technology programs to assist in the:

  • preparation of issued for construction (IFC) drawings
  • compilation of engineering work packages
  • preparation of material take-offs (MTOs) and civil structural cost estimates

Electrical, Instrumentation, Controls (EIC)

Shane Balicki Vista Projects
Shane Balicki is Vista’s Piping Design and Drafting Lead

Our EIC design group is experienced with a variety of drawing packages related to largescale processing facilities.

  • single-line diagrams (SLDs)
  • area classification drawings
  • electrical layouts
  • JB wiring diagrams
  • motor and variable frequency drive (VFD) schematics
  • cable schedules
  • electrical heat tracing (EHT) calculations and isometrics

The EIC drafting and design team works closely with their EIC engineering counterparts to recommend the best options for your project.

  • demand load calculations
  • cable schedules and cable tray fill calculations

Piping Drafting & Design

Computer-aided drafting and design technology is particularly important for the piping design team. Your project requires complex 3D models for accuracy and completeness in accordance with established industry design criteria. The team ensures seamless interfaces with mechanical design and other engineering disciplines to incorporate vendor data and important information, including:

  • equipment location
  • piping routing
  • structural steel
  • foundations
  • cable trays
  • inline instrumentation
