I am an independent consultant who provides detailed fabrication and coordination shop drawings to the mechanical and aerospace industries. Having been in the mechanical industry since 1982 with 21 years’ experience as a detailer, the last 17 owning my own company. I have been involved with and oversaw detailing and coordination on over 110 construction projects including 41 that required BIM. Included are; resort hotels, convention centers, condominiums, vacation villas, schools, hospitals, theme parks, pharmaceutical facilities, central energy plants, airports, military and launch facilities for NASA and USAF.

 

In addition to coordination and detailing I also provide 3D scanning service that can be used to verify existing conditions and provide as-builts.

 

My goal on each project is to reduce costs for my clients. This is done through coordination and fabrication

minimizing the need for unnecessary material and innovative ideas for installation thus reducing labor costs. 

 

I have a thorough understanding of the value and role that detailed planning has on a project and company as a whole. From the savings in labor and material as a result of coordination and fabrication to minimizing the work force on site, increasing production and lowering company exposure to work related accidents which assures a company's ability to secure future bonding. The benefits of planning echo throughout the company.

 

Possessing excellent people skills with the ability to foster a "TEAM" effort and environment, a high level of knowledge in HVAC, piping, plumbing, stainless steel process piping and tubing, refrigeration tubing and sheet metal systems. The ability to take the lead in coordination meetings whether it require BIM or standard practices as well as train employees and delegate work. I have an optimistic outlook and pro active approach with the ability to "think outside the box" when solving problems. Every problem has a solution attitude. These are some of the skills that I have honed over the years.

 

I also provide services for marketing and presentations, material management, track costs, change orders, RFI's, and estimating and oversee the fabrication and installation of piping systems. I offer the flexibility of working on site, from your office or remote.

 

Thanks for your consideration
