Commercial and Industrial Engineering

Blog | May 21st, 2018

Commercial and industrial engineers cover a vast range of services. The disciplines operate in theoretical spaces, with engineering teams engaged in structural analysis projects and other academically biased services. Spreadsheet numbers and computer simulations then leave the drawing board. They’re transformed into actionable designs, which means it’s time to talk to the contractors. In point of fact, this is applied science at its finest. Come on, let’s explore the solutions.

Formulating the Solutions 

Contractors, and they’re skilled professionals, work on single construction sites, on single projects. Commercial and industrial engineering solutions go much further. The project zips beyond the site perimeter and under the site soil. It even zips back in time. The engineers are looking at past land plans, at historical stormwater flow patterns, drainage options, and countless other essential engineering concerns. For the next project, only a concept exists in the client’s mind. Now it’s up to the technical services agency to come up with a workable plan, a design that bridges the concept-to-construct barrier. So one thing’s for certain, these professionals tackle every conceivable work domain. When it comes to engineering, to technical services, limits are not an option.

Nailing Down the Services 

If industrial and commercial engineers could be pigeonholed, the label above that box would contain the word “infrastructure.” That’s what the work entails, after all, the creation and maintenance of vital infrastructural elements. If there’s a nearby highway going in, then the technical service receives a call to construct a pedestrian bridge across that roadway. The drainage for the highway, the temporary structures that support the project, the lights and sidewalks that bound the transport passage, they’re all just engineering problems awaiting a solution. In the meantime, industrial engineers are conducting a second study. This team is analyzing a nearby industrial complex. The manufacturing equipment in here is inefficient, so the job here is to recoup production losses. Back to that drawing board, the tech experts work to come up with a manufacturing equipment system that will end the losses, one that will turn the failing factory into a streamlined operation.

Taking charge of a broad number of engineering domains, the fields favoured by these professional problem solvers are truly diverse. They begin with the seeds of an infrastructural concept, grow to new theoretical heights, with engineers working on soil and ground issues, structural analysis problems, and much more besides. Then, as if these project services weren’t already enough, there are permits to procure and contractors to contact. No worries, there’s always a path forward, one that’s exposed when the right engineers are on the job.
