Engineering

Heavy industrial engineering is complex. A competent design requires both sound technical skills and modern software.  The exceptional design also takes into account working knowledge of the construction process and plant operations.  This combination leads to efficient construction, an operations-friendly facility and/or system improvement.  Our SMACC™ (Safety, Maintenance, Access, Constructability & Coordination) review capitalizes on our team’s – and your - expertise to ensure that, in addition to a technically sound design, the project is highly constructible and plant operations/maintenance-oriented.

We provide Terrestrial Laser Scanning, Conceptual Engineering, Preliminary Engineering, Detail Engineering, Construction Document Development & Construction Engineering Services.

Our employees are involved in various organizations including:

  • American Society of Mechanical Engineers
  • American Society of Civil Engineers
  • American Institute of Steel Construction
  • American Concrete Institute

Structural

Our firm’s concrete, steel, and platework structural design expertise ranges from new construction to strengthening, supplementing, and retrofitting existing systems.

Our structural team has experience with a full range of construction materials and is capable of supporting a variety of specialized construction methods.

We apply finite element design and enhanced analytic methods, along with practical design experience, to create efficient constructible solutions for our projects.  We provide the rigorous design work needed for the large complex loads, heat, and vibrations found in the industrial industry. To assist our analysis, we utilize programs such as:

  • Revit
  • Staad
  • Risa
  • Robot Structural Analysis
  • Recap
  • Tedds
  • Mathcad
  • Ram
  • Structure Point

Industrial Ally employs licensed civil and structural engineers registered in most states and have the ability to gain licensure in all 50 states.  As a department we bring 150 years of structural engineering experience.
