Dimensional control surveying is the technique and science 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. However following the Piper Alpha disaster in the North Sea in 1988 in which 167 men lost their lives, Dimensional Control survey began to be used on offshore installations, as the subsequent enquiry found that one of the causes of the fire was naked flame from offshore fabrication, welding and grinding in a highly explosive environment. Dimensional Control survey eliminates the need for this.
At 3B our Core values are:
OUR SAFETY RECORD
From humble beginnings in 2007 with a staff of two surveyors and a crew of six riggers and welders in Aberdeen, to a worldwide staff of over 100, we are proud to say that in that time, 3B have had ZERO LTI’s and ZERO accidents in the field.
On the Marlin B project in Batam we recorded almost 8000 man hours again with ZERO LTI’s and ZERO accidents.
It is a record 3B management are rightly proud of and one which everyone at 3B intend to maintain.
