Project Management

Project Management

Our project management services begin with conceptualization and continue through formal turnover and system acceptance. A dedicated project manager and process engineer will work with you to initiate, plan, execute, control, and successfully complete your project. The project manager will oversee the sanitary process and utilities installation to ensure the highest quality workmanship is delivered on schedule and that design and regulatory standards including 3-A, ASME, FDA, OSHA, UL, and USDA are met or exceeded.

CAD, 3D Modeling, and BIM Design Services

BMI engineers and process designers develop P&ID drawings, process flow diagrams, 3D models, Building Information Modeling (BIM), and electrical wiring diagrams using cutting-edge design tools such as Autodesk Inventor, Revit, and AutoCAD Plant 3D. Our designers use these collaborative tools to ensure design clarity, prevent collisions and improve project communication. Whether you need a new process system design and/or as-built drawings for a legacy system, BMI will deliver.
