Project Services

We provide full in-house project services to support our engineering disciplines and drafting and design teams.

Document Control

The document control function is critical to the success of any engineering projects. Working closely with the QA group, the document control team performs quality assurance for all inbound and outbound controlled documentation. Vista’s document controllers are skilled and experienced at receiving, tracking and monitoring engineering and supplier drawings and documentation in an electronic data management system (EDMS).

While Vista is technology agnostic and can work with any EDMS, our implementation of Aconex was featured as a case study for the vendor.
