Proven Systems & Processes
Our proven systems and processes for cost estimating, procurement, scheduling and material control drive efficiencies and keep the customer fully informed throughout the project.
Right from award, we’re all-in and committed to your projects success. Our project team is constantly monitoring your project to ensure it is completed when promised. Daily meetings between office and shop Supervisors are used to review your projects progress and mitigate any potential issues. This collaboration ensures your project is always looked after.
Our Project Manager’s key strength is keeping projects moving to completion regardless of challenges, circumstances and incidents. Progress reports, regular schedule updates, and weekly Client meetings keep you informed at all times.
Successful projects begin with the efficient control of information. Our document management system ensures quick access to the latest documents, including drawings, specifications, schedules, and reports, used to fabricate your project.
Engineering and drafting services have been a part of Crimtech from day one. Crimtech started out as an oilfield engineering and drafting consulting company back in 1993, two years before we started fabrication. We pride ourselves in designing for the operator, mechanic, electrician, or instrument technician first. We leverage this experience when working with end user and EPC project teams.
Our strength lies with incorporating our field experience into detail engineering for our customers. We specialize in taking concept ideas and drawings and turning them into fabrication drawings including the approval of a professional engineer.
Piping systems are designed to ASME Codes or CSA Standards and the Client’s Specifications. Structural beam sizing and connection designs to CSA S16 Standard. Vessel design calculations in accordance to ASME Code Section VIII, Division 1. Electrical designs as per the Canadian Electrical Code and the Client’s Specifications.
Drafting and Design
Pipe spool drawings are created in-house using AcornPipe® Software which allows us to quickly convert piping isometrics into shop fabrication drawings. This system automatically develops a bill of materials saving valuable up front time while maintaining a high level of material accuracy.
Using state of the art software, we create our own structural steel details, in-house, from a vast collection of standard details. This promotes efficiencies from design through fabrication and a high level of quality.
For more complicated designs we use SolidWorks® 3D modeling software to create easy to read shop drawings. 3D models also expose interferences in the design that would not be easily shown with 2D drawings. This minimizes “surprises” on the floor and helps to maintain schedule.
Purchasing and Material Control
Crimtech utilizes proven procurement practices and tracking systems to ensure that all material or engineer to order equipment purchased meets the Client’s specifications.
With 6000 sq. ft. of warehouse space and over 11 acres of yard space available we have the room to store your “Free Issued” material. Our Procurement department uses proven material receiving procedures so you can rest assured your material is always safe and secure.
Crimtech’s Supply Chain Management depth allows us to adapt quickly to scope or schedule changes. Our select group of strategic partners is constantly evaluated to confirm alignment with Crimtech’s safety and quality policies.
You can trust our QC inspectors to verify compliance with the project scope requirements, industry Codes or Standards, and of course the Clients specifications. Nothing gets passed by QC unless all these requirements are satisfied. Our knowledgeable inspectors are certified as either an ABSA Welding Examiner, CWB Welding Inspector, and\or NACE Coating Inspector.
We also understand the importance of accurate record keeping. Our QC Team provides 100% traceability by utilizing detailed inspection and reporting practices on every aspect of the project. This is all compiled in a final record of fabrication data book.
This is all done with uncompromising integrity.
Crimtech’s experienced logistics team, along with our strategic transportation partners, can ship any size project from our facility to your site, safely and efficiently. We understand what it takes to plan, organize, and ship over dimensional loads so leave this worry with us.
