We can tailor informative continuing-education lectures, presentations and seminars targeted at technical staff, particularly on the most current developments in hull structural engineering.
Builders submit plans to owners for review and confirmation of compliance with the specification requirements.
More... A detailed and careful review is necessary as builders’ plan often contain errors and omissions, primarily due to lack of coordination among different design departments. These errors and omissions must be detected and rectified in the plan review/confirmation stage, which can be achieved through regular review and timely discussions with a builder’s design department.
