Becht’s Matthew Craig to Present at Upcoming Rice Global E&C Forum Roundtable

matt craigMatthew Craig, a Senior Advisor in the Becht Dimensional Technology Services group will be presenting “How 3D Data Capture (laser scanning) Has Changed How EPC Organizations Execute Capital Projects” at the Rice Global Engineering & Construction Forum on December 13, 2019 

Below is a brief description of his presentation:

The laser scan technology has evolved over the past 20 years, but what has catapulted the growing use of this technology in the EPC industry is the fact that measurable and repeatable results have consistently demonstrated that cost savings can be achieved by incorporating this and other 3D data capture technologies on projects. However, it is not the laser scanning technology alone that achieve these consistent results; it is the work processes that the laser scanning technology enables that consistently provide cost-saving results. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the laser scanning technology, and how it is used in EPC project execution, and briefly touch on other 3D data capture technologies that are being introduced that will build on the success of the laser scanning technology.

Joe Collins Presents at Rice Global E&C September Roundtable

joe collinsOn Friday September 13th, Becht’s Heavy Lift and Heavy Haul Subject Matter Expert Joe Collins will be presenting “A Lift Plan for Every Lift” at the Rice Global E&C Forum’s September Roundtable.

Below is an excerpt of Mr. Collins' presentation:

"When attempting any lift, regardless of how small or seemingly insignificant, there is a minimum of ten questions that that must be answered and confirmed before you begin.

In this presentation we will discuss utilizing the questions to develop a basic lift plan for routine lifts. The ten-question lift plan is intended to inspire creative thinking and assure the most vital parameters are considered.

It has been shown that when a lift plan is required for every lift, the supervisors, operators and riggers catch mistakes before they happen."
