Bringing Value
  • I will contribute my ability to streamline design processes. For example, I developed a new as-built instruction manual at a former employer that removed the ambiguity around the as-built process and gave a concrete set of instruction as to how we would conduct, record, draft and issue as-built drawings.
  •  I bring teaching and mentoring abilities to your company. I am experienced in areas related to this company’s current skillset, including complex piping design, the latest versions of AutoCAD, general skills training and mentorship. For example, at a previous employer I improved leadership by mentoring more junior personnel and acted as one of the instructors for their extensive leadership program.

 

  • I bring work experiences covering project and departmental supervision, project design hours estimating and project control. My experience goes across disciplines and includes strategies for more effective teamwork. At a previous company I devised strategies for improving teamwork and communication among members of team projects. I bring not only lessons and experience from my previous employ, but a passion for design and innovation to your organization.
  • I bring a wide variety of experience both domestic and international. I am conversant with both pipeline and facility work, having worked as lead, checker and department head on both major and minor pipeline projects, refineries, gas and oil processing projects.
  • I am equally at ease as either contract or staff and work in either capacity with ease.
  • As An owner and advanced user of both ACAD and 3DSmart I do the layout and design of your project at your office or from my location using my software. If your firm has projects but not the project volume to invest in expensive software I provide computers and software to work from my location or yours and produce 3D models, drawings and isometrics generated from the 3D model.
  • I am proficient with the AutoPlant 3D Piping Design software.
  • I am proficient with the CadWorx 3D Piping Design software,
  • I am proficient with ACAD to 2017 and have taught advanced courses at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in basic ACAD, advanced and 3D ACAD (both to 2017), CadWorx, Piping Design - both basic and advanced and Engineering Principals.
  • I have both the website and ftp sites that secure transfer of documents between us when working from my location.
  • I bring the ability to accurately estimate piping and pipeline design hours for both reimbursable and lump sum environments.
  • I bring experience management of multi-discipline design groups executing projects across offices in other cities and provinces across Canada, in the US, and in China and India.
