Summit Engineering and Design, LLC offers multi-discipline engineering and design services to the marine, refinery, power, and process industries.
Our staff consists of several highly experienced and skilled engineers and designers including 7 licensed Professional Engineers.
We have been actively involved in the use of 3D laser scanning since 2001. 3D laser scanning provides a method of gathering very accurate field data and greatly improves the accuracy of our mechanical and piping design.
Summit owns several FARO laser scanners, including the U.S.A’s first FARO Focus3D. In 2013 we added FARO’s latest, a Focus3D X330. This laser scanner provides extra long range (330m) with a 50% reduction in distance noise.
Summit provides laser scanning for two phases of a project’s life cycle: Scan-To-Plan™ services help streamline planning and preparation and reduce costly site visits, while Scan-To-Design services provide more focused and more detailed information for highly accurate designs that reduce field-fitup and rework.
Summit also uses advanced design tools such as AutoCAD Plant3D for 3D piping design, INTools for instrumentation design, Rhino3D for marine applications, and Kohera3D Piping for scan data feature extraction of piping diameters and center lines.
We provide the following on-site facility support:
