There are many types of facilities, plants, and refineries in this country that are built exclusively by industrial construction companies. These companies are experts in constructing facilities for industrial use, from water treatment plants to oil refineries. They understand how the facility should be laid out, what individual components are needed, and which contractors they’ll need to hire to handle specific aspects of the job. While they work from a blueprint provided to them by their client, they are the experts who are able to tell the client whether or not their plan will work and what things they haven’t considered yet that they need to.
Industrial construction companies work with a number of contractors, from the companies they hire to handle the painting to the companies they work with to do the electrical wiring. Of course, some industrial construction companies have everything in house. They handle the entire construction process from start to finish on their own. This means that they have someone or some of group of people working under their roof that are able to handle each aspect of the project.
However, some companies don’t have all of this under their roof. Instead, they handle the overview and management of the project, but they hire contractors and outside companies to take care of individual parts of the project. For example, many industrial construction companies rely heavily on pipe fabricators. Pipe fabricators are the people who manufacture the pipes that go in various buildings. They’re commonly used when an industrial construction company is building some sort of facility that’s going to be using a large number of pipes. This could be anything from a scientific research center to a water treatment plant, or even an oil refinery.
The reason that so many industrial construction companies outsource this work to a third party is because pipe fabrication is incredibly complicated. It’s not easy to fabricate pipes, let alone when they have to be of a certain length and diameter. You might not have realized this, but the technology behind pipe fabrication is actually quite advanced. In many facilities, the pipes have to bend at certain points so that they can fit within the facility, and many times individual pieces of pipe have to be connected using bolts. Those bolts have to be torqued to just the right tightness to ensure that the pipe is pressurized properly and that it won’t crack, break, or leak once the material starts running through it. Pipe fabrication is a complicated process with a lot of moving parts, which is why so many companies out there hire outside parties to handle it for them.
Of course, it’s always nice when you find one of those companies that can handle every aspect of your construction process. Such companies, like Turner Industries, are able to complete projects more quickly because they’re not having to schedule various third parties to come to the job site. They don’t waste any time waiting on a company to perform a certain task, which saves their clients both time and money.
