A Quality-Driven Process
Quality processes drive our fabrication procedures.
1. Prior to bidding work we review the material specifications, approved vendor lists and welding requirements for a better understanding of the customer s quality expectations.
2. When awarded the work the quality team orders material and begins planning with approved vendors and manufacturers.
3. Materials are inspected upon arrival to confirm they meet specifications and identified for traceability.
4. Drawings are prepared per customer specifications identifying necessary codes, hold points, customer view points, required testing and are approved by the customer.
5. Fabrication begins based upon approved drawings and specifications. Inspections are performed at each hold point per written procedures.
6. Required testing is completed and final preparations like painting and insulation are completed.
