Prothious offers in-depth, multi-disciplinary capabilities in a variety of engineering fields including: civil, electrical, instrumentation, mechanical, piping and structural. Furthermore, through decades of experience, we provide extensive expertise in design, detailed engineering, detailing and shop drawings, 2D drawing conversions, intelligent 3D plant modeling (SmartPlant), as-built engineering, tower design, substation design and project and construction management.
Plant Design Automation Services
Intelligent 3D Plant Modeling
Prothious provides 3D modeling services for a wide variety of plant engineering disciplines including equipment, civil, electrical, HVAC, instrumentation, piping and structural.
Our numerous services deliver solutions for EPC and Design Firms, Consulting Engineers and Owner/Operators with the following needs:
- 3D modeling capabilities for customer and project specifications
- Outsourced 3D modeling services to supplement constrained internal resources
- 3D modeling and required changes for projects on an existing 2D platform
- As-builts for existing plants on a 3D platform
We can use EPC-developed specification sheets and 2D drawings as inputs for modeling structures, equipment, pipes and piping components, instruments, electrical cable trays and HVAC. Also, we can produce interference and clash detection reports to generate general arrangement drawings (GAs), detailed isometric drawings and detailed Material Take Offs (MTOs) for the construction site.
Prothious develops equipment models in accordance with piping, structural and electrical raceways. Deliverables include modeling and placement of standard and proprietary equipment, equipment layout drawings, equipment lists and nozzles schedules.
Prothious employs industry best practices, and proprietary in-house knowledge. We develop a comprehensive database for total project work and subsequent use throughout a plant’s lifecycle. Also, our library of ISA standard specification sheets are customized according to project requirements.
Our instrumentation service deliverables include cable schedules, calculations, hook up drawings, impulse piping, instrument indexes, loop wiring diagrams, Material Take Offs (MTOs), schematic control diagrams, specification sheets and tubing, among others.
Prothious employs industry best practices and proprietary in-house knowledge for synchronized piping modeling and routing. We utilize P&ID’s, 3D equipment, piping specifications, structural models and frameworks and equipment layouts. Our comprehensive deliverables include general arrangement drawings, isometrics, line lists and MTOs.
Prothious employs industry best practices and proprietary in-house knowledge for structural modeling deliverables including MTOs for structural steel, structural GAD and reports. Typical inputs for structural modeling and engineering include preliminary equipment layout from “know-how” supplier, static and dynamic load data, dimensions from equipment vendors, site data, wind and climatic conditions, seismological data and soil data
We also generate basic structural 3D models analyzed with STAAD PRO software for various operating load conditions that may occur in real life situations (static and dynamic equipment loads, varying wind loads and directions, primary and secondary structural loads, etc.).
Prothious delivers comprehensive 3D modeling services for structural, equipment, piping and instrumentation.
Project Management and On-Site Resources
For both large and small jobs, Prothious can deliver resources and immediate customer service around the globe.
For some projects, we offer resources for secondment or the on-site placement of a Prothious architect, draftsman, engineer, detailer, designer or project manager. These resources can provide on-site engineering and technical capabilities, coordinate with other trades, organize contractors, interact with architects and engineers, orchestrate procurement, manage and track revisions and help with shop scheduling and field coordination.
The team at Prothious has pioneered the overseas engineering business since its inception in the mid-1990s. Within the lifetime of this industry, our accomplished engineers and staff members have worked on an expansive range of projects, from unique and complex to large and industrial, have completed more work than the competition and have successfully executed the most sought-after jobs.
Beyond talented professionals, however, Prothious continually develops innovative systems and a collaborative culture to ensure our competitive edge. Our internal systems and processes enable our talent to produce timely, accurate work on a consistent basis. Additionally, we maintain an open, productive culture that keeps all team members in the information loop.
We are acutely responsive to client needs, ask the right questions at the right time, and facilitate smooth communication flow throughout an entire project. Ultimately, our unique culture and internal systems allow us to deliver a consistent, on time, high-quality product for every project.
