Project: Moody Creek Fall Protection Program

Completion: January 2014

Arctech Welding + Machining Ltd. was approached by our long time client, Macro Industries, to upgrade the fall protection within TransCanada Pipeline Ltd.'s Moody Creek Compressor Station. This 15,000lb upgrade included ten (10) platforms, with accompanying guardrails and ladders. These platforms, one of which was completely round, were designed to provide safe access to existing equipment. We were responsible for shop detailed drawings, material procurement and fabrication. In addition to the platforms, we also prepared and submitted an in-depth and all-inclusive Turn Over Package. Ensuring efficient installation and seamless connections, with existing material, requires accurate and comprehensive details; in several instances, the design drawings were insufficient. To ensure accuracy, Macro Industries' project manager was in constant communication with our detailer; however, he had limited time on site and was only able to provide field-verified-dimensions occasionally. For several platforms, these field-verified-dimensions were accessible only days prior to their required shipping date. Even so, Arctech was prepared and was able to continue to meet all deadlines and shipment dates

Project: Highway Gas & Liquids Plant Expansion & Flowsplitter Project

Completion: January 2014

Arctech Welding + Machining Ltd. has been working to build a strong relationship with Spectra Energy. In the late summer of 2013, Arctech fabricated and supplied several bullet supports, platform extensions and stand-alone platforms, with ladders, for Spectra Energy's Highway Gas & Liquids Plant Expansion Project. We were responsible for shop detailed drawings, material procurement, fabrication and coating of the entire scope of work. As the Plant has existing steelwork, our detailer needed to work closely with Spectra Energy's engineers, to ensure the accuracy of all measurements and dimensions so that the fabricated steelwork would connect with ease. Upon successful completion of this 20,000lb project, Spectra Energy was eager to work with us again and move forward with the Highway Gas & Liquids Plant Flowsplitter Project. The scope of this 155,000lb project included thirteen (13) platforms and seven (7) pipe racks. The platforms were of varying complexity, and several included multiple heights, with connecting ladders. The pipe racks were of varying designs, lengths, and connections; several connected directly into existing steelwork. These projects both concluded with Arctech preparing and submitting an in-depth and all-inclusive Turn Over Package.

Project: Kobes & Nig Creek Platform Program

Completion: January 2014

Arctech Welding + Machining Ltd. worked with Spectra Energy to increase the safety of workers at two (2) similar sites. Physical access was required to a tank, located well above ground-level; however, temporary platforms were built for each access. Arctech worked directly with the Project Coordinator, as well as several key workers on site, to help design, fabricate and install a safety platform at each site. Our scope of work was all inclusive; we were responsible to design the platforms, engage an Engineer, and assess and measure the locations. Upon design approval from Spectra Energy, Arctech worked through the shop detailed drawing process, material procurement, fabrication and coating. Additionally, we facilitated the shipping and on-site installation of the platforms at their respective sites. Due to space availability, and the height of the platforms, traditional access stairs or ladders would not suffice; instead, an alternating tread stair was required. Although this type of stair was completely new to our shop detailer, supervisors, project managers and welders, Arctech's final product turned out great, was installed with ease, and everyone who has used them is very happy.

Project: Gordondale Platform Program

Completion: June 2013 & December 2013

Arctech Welding + Machining Ltd. worked with Spectra Energy to develop a program for upgrading several platforms at the Gordondale East Gas Plant. We worked directly with the Project Coordinator, for the site, as well as several key workers on-site, to help design, fabricate and install a tank farm walkway extension, inlet coalescer platform expansion, and furnace port platforms (3 of). Arctech's scope of work was all inclusive; we were responsible to design the platforms, engage an Engineer, and assess and measure the location. Upon design approval from Spectra Energy, we worked through the shop detailed drawing process, material procurement, fabrication and coating. Additionally, Arctech expanded upon our usual process and we facilitated the shipping and on-site installation, including picker service. As the Gordondale site is located in Alberta, we were required to obtain all clearances to perform work in the new province; we are now certified to perform portable work in Alberta.

Project: Steen River Gas Plant Upgrade

Completion: September 2013

Due to an ongoing relationship with Cownden Consulting, Arctech Welding + Machining Ltd. was approached to work with Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd. to supply structural steelwork for their Steen River Gas Plant Upgrade. Arctech's scope of work, for this 125,000lb project, included providing shop detailed drawings, fabrication and coating of many pipe supports, equipment supports, pipe racks and platforms. Additionally, we facilitated the shipping of steelwork to the Steen River Gas Plant in Alberta. As Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd. worked through the on-site upgrade, measurements, drawings, and requirements were adjusted on a continuous basis. As such and to ensure that our product exactly met requirements, Arctech's thorough diligence was imperative for the entire duration of the project.

Project: Fort St. John Co-Op Mall Upgrade

Completion:  September 2013

This summer, Arctech explored a new business avenue; commercial building renovations. We worked with Norson Construction to fabricate and supply the required steelwork for the Fort St. John Co-Op Mall Upgrade. In addition to our role as a supplier, we also completed the required on-site welding and erection of the steelwork. Due to the ever-changing nature of renovations, we were required to be extremely detailed with our project management systems. Dimensions, locations and priorities were ever-evolving and, in order to satisfy our client and provide high-quality work, our drawings, product and schedule needed to reflect the changes. As we were inexperienced with regards to the safety hazards, associated with renovating aging buildings, we were required to be diligent with our safety program updates and implementation of hazard controls.
