Mechanical Engineering Services

High-quality, fit-for-purpose integrated engineering
designs that keep your project on budget.

Avoid costly rework and stay on schedule with our flexible mechanical engineering consulting services

Our engineering firm provides a fully integrated service where our mechanical engineers work alongside other engineering disciplines.

Work with an experienced mechanical group consisting of professional engineers and EITs from different fields of mechanical engineering.

Our mechanical engineers participate in all project stages, from studies through detailed engineering, as required. We work on pilot plant designs and building systems for start-up technologies, to large-scale brownfield and greenfield processing facilities.

As industrial engineering consultants, clients benefit from our wide range of experience providing fit-for-purpose industrial designs.

Common mechanical engineering services include:

  • Mechanical and piping systems and material, diagram and equipment selection, sizing, and evaluation
  • Equipment drawings, P&IDs, general arrangement drawings, piping and equipment module drawings
  • Equipment work packages (EWPs)
  • Equipment datasheets and specifications
  • Material requisitions (MRQs), technical bid evaluations (TBEs), and purchase orders (POs) for equipment and services
  • Vendor drawing reviews following applicable codes and standards
  • Research scale pilot plants for sustainable energy and emission recovery projects

Engineering Technology with a Purpose

It’s easy to get distracted by fancy new engineering technology. But it’s important to keep the focus on how each tool will benefit the project.

We’re a technology-agnostic engineering company and system integrator. That means we can deliver high-quality mechanical engineering services with your preferred software or tools.

Our approach is simple, the technology must serve a purpose. Whether it’s laser scans and point cloud data or computer-aided design (CAD) applications and engineering programs.

Have a specific need for an application? Our in-house development team is available to customize a problem-solving tool. For example, this video demonstrates how we collaborate on P&IDs in real-time.

System Integration Partner

As an AVEVA Partner, Vista Projects specializes in the implementation, configuration, administration, and support of AVEVA’s Asset Information Management suite. We support both owners/operators and EPCs with capital project implementations. The union of our integrated engineering and technical expertise is a true advantage. Our team has the knowledge and experience to help you maximize the return on your software investments.
