I have been involved with piping and mechanical equipment in process plant most of my working life. From design through to fabrication and construction. My experience as an artisan enhances my abilities to do design of process plants. I have been involved with construction supervision of plant where I also were part of the design team.
Piping, specifically in water treatment and mining applications, are my bread and butter. I have experience in the complete workflow, from surveying pipeline routes, calculation of pipe sizes, friction losses, pump station design, pump selection and incorporating all this into a 3D model using either Inventor, AutoCAD or AutoCAD Plant 3D. From this I produce fabrication drawings for use in a workshop, and construction/assembly drawing to facilitate the construction phase.
