Process Engineering

Our process engineering group provides an in-depth working knowledge of multiple process systems and simulation software. Common deliverables for the process team include:

  • preparation and approval of project-specific design documentation
  • preparation and review of PFDs, P&IDs, DTPTs, datasheets, design calculations, etc.
  • application of a professional engineering stamp, as required

Civil Structural Engineering

Our civil structural engineering group performs many tasks in collaboration with other disciplines. The civil structural team’s responsibilities include the following tasks.

  • Preparing loading and load combinations based on the applicable codes and standards
  • Coordinating shop-drawing reviews for structural adequacy and accordance with issued for construction (IFC) structural drawings
  • Checking complex structural engineering designs, including:
    • rack structure supports
    • structural foundation drawings
    • main structural frames
    • secondary steel frames, platforms, and access
    • architectural plan drawings
    • load foundation calculations

Electrical Engineering

Our electrical engineering group applies extensive knowledge in CEC and international codes, standards and approved codes of practice for every project. Our team independently prepares or reviews electrical transient analyzer program (ETAP) or software development kits (SDK) models.

The electrical team’s responsibilities include:

  • drawing packages
  • single-line diagrams (SLDs)
  • area classifications
  • electrical layouts
  • voltage drop calculations
  • demand load calculations
  • JB wiring diagrams
  • motor and variable frequency drive (VFD) schematics
  • cable schedules and cable tray fill calculations
  • electrical heat tracing (EHT) calculations and isometrics

Instrumentation and Controls Engineering

Our instrumentation and controls engineering team prepares P&ID inputs and oversees instrument selection. The I&C group is also responsible for developing and reviewing instrument indexes, instrument datasheets, and inline instrument sizing.

Other common I&C deliverables include preparing:

  • I/O count and assignments
  • instrument loop diagrams
  • instrument UPS load requirements lists
  • cable schedule inputs
  • junction box termination drawings
  • SKDs
  • control philosophies or narratives

Mechanical Engineering

Our mechanical engineering group applies an extensive working knowledge of most equipment types. The team will review a variety of design characteristics from a mechanical standpoint, including:

  • equipment drawings
  • P&IDs
  • general arrangement drawings

Our mechanical engineers work closely with other engineering disciplines throughout the project cycle. They take a collaborative approach to prepare and review deliverables in accordance with industry and client codes and standards. This includes equipment data sheets, lists, packages, and drawings.

The team is also responsible for preparing and reviewing specifications for mechanical systems and materials, technical selection, and equipment evaluation.

Piping Engineering

The piping engineering group encompasses materials and stress engineering as well as metallurgy. Common deliverables include developing and stamping new and existing line class specifications, preparing stress calculations, and defining piping and equipment metallurgies.

Project Engineering Services

No matter the stage of your project, we have you covered, from studies through to construction support.

  • Preliminary Front-End Engineering Design (pre-FEED)
  • Front-End Engineering Design (FEED)
  • Detailed Engineering (DE)

Engineering Studies

Engineering studies are often required in the early stages of project design. This allows multi-discipline engineering teams to optimize specifications and address the unique challenges associated with a project. For example, we conducted a study for Natural Resources Canada. Our early engineering evaluation included recommendations for strategic locations and costs related to petroleum bulk storage facilities.

With the goal of the most cost-effective solution, we explore all the options when conducting an engineering study. Among other aspects, our reviews include:

  • process technologies
  • alternate process design schemes
  • utilization of existing plant facilities
  • alternative construction materials or techniques
  • scheduling options

Engineering Markets

Our project multidisciplinary engineering consultants are detailed oriented and have experience with some of the most successful processing facilities in North America. We can help solve the challenges you face in any of the following global energy and industrial markets.
