EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN AND ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE LEADS TO AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE
For more than 140 years, The Austin Company has been a partner to manufacturing clients, ensuring projects are completed on-time, within budget and of the highest quality. Multi-disciplinary integrated engineering provides complete, highly technical, coordinated project documents to the job site quickly and efficiently.
Our in-house architects and engineers offer these services• Site Planning and Conceptual Design
• Architectural Design and Structural Engineering
• Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Engineering
• Fire Protection Engineering
• Process Engineering
• Process Piping Design
• Process Equipment Design
• Process Instrumentation and Controls (I & C)
• Waste Water Treatment Design
Austin’s design and engineering teams have industry knowledge and experience, which removes the learning curve and adds to the efficiencies we bring to the table. Fast-track or even faster “flash-track” projects? No problem.
Upfront Commitment to VDC Reduces Time and Saves Money Later in the ProjectThe Austin Company has been integrating design and construction services for well over a century and today utilizes virtual design and construction (VDC) technology, including Building Information Modeling (BIM), to best serve our clients.
Benefits of VDC Include:
• Reduced risk
• Streamlined data workflows
• Clash detection
• Leveraging of model information
• Increased efficiency
• Increased collaboration and coordination
• Improved decision-making
Empowering Project Teams to Add Value to Project PerformanceAustin applies Lean methods to our design, engineering and construction to maximize value and project outcomes, with a focus on relationships, shared knowledge and common goals.
Benefits of Lean Design and Construction include:
• Improved time productivity,
• Reduced safety hazards
• Cost savings
• Improved coordination among all project team members
• Optimization of budgets, including life-cycle costs
• Potential for earlier project completion due to minimized inefficiencies
Quality Process Is Carried from Preliminary Design Through CommissioningAustin’s quality process is carried from preliminary design and project kick-off through construction and commissioning to provide successful quality management throughout the entire project. The process requires coordination and collaboration for efficient response to changing variables and challenges.
Austin utilizes top-rated project management software and mobile technology that provides quick access to more than 200 paperless safety and quality inspections for the following:
• Design engineering drawings
• Field safety surveillances
• Quality Assurance & Quality Control
• Storm water
Taking a Sustainable Design Approach to Every ProjectAustin takes a sustainable design approach to every project, regardless of goals for LEED® certification. Because Austin is an integrated architecture, engineering, construction and consulting firm, we practice both “sustainable design” and “green building” – integrating sustainable design with construction and commissioning.
Some of the Resources Our Engineers Use Are:• Touchplan
• 3D Modeling Software
