WHAT IS DIMENSIONAL CONTROL?
Dimensional Control Surveying is the technique whereby 3-Dimensional spaces are accurately measured to determine the area between points, creating digitally mapped distances and angles. Dimensional Control surveying has been used for decades in the world’s large jacket and fabrication facilities. Dimensional control exists primarily because of safety.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
“I have been involved in piping fabrication for 30 years and the Wheatstone Jumper Spools Fabrication was the most challenging project that I have ever come across, in terms of complexity, tolerances and schedule, to the point where every joint needed to be surveyed by a surveyor and marked prior to cutting, again on fit up and then after welding all of which 3B Survey did an excellent job.
Considerable effort was put in by the 3B site team, with up to 8 full time surveyors, working 12 hours a day and 7 days a week over the life of the project.
We would have no hesitation in recommending their services and look forward to working with 3B Survey again in future.”
“3B Survey have been contracted to undertake a number of offshore survey campaigns. These campaigns usually involve the accurate survey of piping tie-in flanges, or structural tie-ins, as well as detailed point cloud surveys to aid piping and structural design. The aim of the surveys have been to allow for the complete design and fabrication of all structural and piping elements onshore, resulting in wherever possible, only bolted connections offshore, with minimal or no hotwork.
When offshore the 3B surveyors have worked extremely well with our offshore personnel, and have quickly settled into their work scopes. They have managed the scopes well, and have safely worked around other concurrent offshore campaigns, and general operational activities.
The quality of the survey deliverables received has been second to none, in particular the laser point cloud scanning, which has provided a level of detail not seen before by our piping and structural designers. Despite scanning often very congested areas of the platform, they have managed to achieve a full detailed scan, with little to no shadowing.
3B Survey have also been contracted to survey pipe spools at the fabrication workshop. They have provided clear survey reports in a very timely manner, and where necessary have worked with the fabricators to rectify any small errors discovered.
3B Survey offer very competitive personnel and equipment rates, and have provided accurate and high quality deliverables. I would not hesitate in recommending their services to other Operators.”
