steam plant project planning

 

Planned for success.

IB&M’s Engineering & Design division boasts a full engineering staff of veteran leaders and service techs with decades of experience in steam plant project work. Our experience means that each and every mechanical contracting project is meticulously planned by industry experts, from small commercial or industrial steam plants to large industrial power plants generating multiple MegaWatts of power for cities and communities. We can work with side by side as subcontracted steam plant specialists for General Contractors or engineering firms, or manage the entire project from A-Z, with planning and design to equipment delivery and installation.

 

New steam plant project? Here’s what you can expect:


  • Our team of specialists (engineers, estimators, project managers, and field craftsmen) who are experts in building mechanical construction, plumbing and electrical codes, etc. will build a new plan from an idea, work from provided specs or survey a physical site to determine the details required to assess the full scope of a project. We look at key components like existing piping and utilities available (or those needed), and identify equipment needed to install, modify or repair.
     
  • Our engineers design for planned output requirements (size, pressure, flow, etc) and account for possible growth projections to build a solution that can factor additional capacity.
     
  • This team builds an estimate for each project along with a detailed design and building project plan including delivery dates, equipment requirements and installation dates.
     
  • We work with any and all state regulatory entities to ensure that all steam and hot water project requirements are up to code and meet regulatory standards.
     
  • Management! It’s not over just because our project is complete. We provide regular inspections and tune ups to make sure our project work.

 

Equipment repair, modification, or steam plant expansion? Here’s our process:


  • Our engineering staff performs a careful evaluation of the need first, and will walk through your plan or put together a project requirements to meet your need.
     
  • IB&M provides engineering for repairs and equipment alterations. We have full R,S & U stamps to work with fired (steam boilers and hot water heaters) and unfired vessels (DA systems and feedwater tanks).
     
  • Once we establish a project scope (design & calculate, equipment or system modifications, custom application development, etc.) we will work with you to determine a timeline and budget for your project.
     
  • Have other general contractors or even sub contractors? Great! We work well with other teams and can become a part of the team or lead it depending on your needs.
     
  • Whether it’s boiler installation, process piping or building a mezzanine - we have the mechanical and electrical contracting expertise to meet your complete steam plant needs. You can count on IB&M remove, replace, relocate or install any piece of equipment or machinery.

 

Mechanical contracting projects require expert coordination of multiple resources and schedules. IB&M is uniquely positioned to leverage our multiple internal divisions to provide a total steam solution, and work cross functionally with other teams that may already be in place to make sure that design and engineering plans take into account all of the moving pieces for your project.
