Our ability to excel in the construction and maintenance of our clients’ facilities is due to the strength of our core competencies that serve all areas of our organization.
Delivering predictability in these corporate divisions is the cornerstone to success in the field and is what helps set us apart in allowing us to deliver predictability to every project we step onto.
Whether we are working on an electrical project in British Columbia or a civil project in Manitoba, having continuity in these critical areas of our business ensures all corporate standards are met and maintained. This gives our clients peace of mind in knowing that when they hire Chemco, their projects will be executed with the same level of professionalism regardless of location.
To avoid delays in getting necessary material to the site, we maintain an $8 million dollar inventory of current electrical, instrumentation, fibre optics, heat trace, and high voltage materials.
Based on a leading industry model for quality control, our proprietary digital system has been adapted to the specialized needs of electrical & mechanical instrumentation construction contracting, as well as Chemco’s internal quality standards.
Quality control during the construction process is extremely important in order to safeguard the value of the owner’s investment. Chemco’s QAQC personnel can perform checks and tests throughout the construction process. From the development of the initial quality plan through to commissioning and start up, we provide our clients with assurance that their project is being built according to their specifications.
General construction inspection and verification requirements include inspections, QC testing, establishing construction acceptance criteria, construction audits, compliance with handling, storage, packaging, preservation, and delivery requirements, and material identification and traceability.
Construction of many of the facilities we work on is a complex undertaking. However, Chemco’s Quality Control division is there to prevent poor quality construction that may result in serious project delays and substantial cost over-runs. Chemco has experienced, qualified, and highly trained personnel in construction and maintenance QAQC procedures and are available to establish a program for your project, or to provide support for an established QAQC project team.
Overall, the close integration of our quality control and project control processes allows us to track progress and assure quality in every detail of the work we do. This gives Chemco and its clients confidence that when we say it’s done, it’s completely done – and done right.
Today, we’ve captured that experience in our own, specially-designed Project Control System that we call the Integrated Project Delivery System (IPDS). Chemco’s IPDS gives us the ability to meet the information needs of Canada’s most recognized industries with accurate, real-time data on productivity, scheduling, manpower, costs, and logistics. Most importantly, our system gives us the ability to perform accurate project forecasts, and identify and assess any job site situation under our control and recommend effective action.
As one of the largest contractors in our field, we use manpower data, where warranted, to shift tradespeople out of weather-stalled projects and onto other job sites and to bring the same people back to the site to smoothly resume work when weather permits. Where schedule slippage demands catch-up, our size enables us to bring additional qualified tradespeople to your site. No limits construction & maintenance contracting means Chemco and its customers have more options to get the job done.
Our people, experience, and systems enable us to respond quickly and effectively in the complex, changing environment of major construction projects. We pride ourselves on being a reliable asset to our clients and their partners.
We work closely with clients on all types of proposals from lump sum to time & material or unit rates, to ensure the proposal is thorough and transparent.
Our estimating acumen has been accrued through hundreds of years of team experience and over 50 years of historical data of various sized projects with different project schedules in the western Canadian market. The use of Accubid in addition to in-house, custom-designed programs in Visual Basic and Microsoft Access, allows for accurate and dependable client proposals.
