The Problem

Multiple MarkWest facilities required hazard assessments for their fractionators, storage tanks, truck and rail racks, fire protection water storage and underground water systems. They needed design and construction of all projects to be completed on an expedited schedule.

The Solution

We provided a full scope of risk engineering services including the design of fire detection, alarm and above and below-ground water systems. Following the design, we provided full time on-site construction supervision services to ensure the projects were delivered on-schedule and under budget.
