Project Managers

Agility in a changing game.

Agile project management software and estimate interrogation capability to help you manage your team and the documentation required to deliver your project on time (Gantt scheduler), and on budget. Your client can be included in the communication stream to ensure transparency and collaboration as the project progresses.

Project Controller

Collaborative scheduling. Stay well-connected.

Collaboration while connected is key to the design in all our software, You will find that the estimating package allows you to extract cost in order to evaluate the estimate and then move straight to using the Gantt scheduling package to ensure your team runs on time.

Engineers

One source of truth. Trust you can build on.

You can trust Methvin with your data. Our online pricing program will allow you to extract data in order to interrogate the estimate, as well as giving you access to productivities. You can lay out your project responsibilities and connect all your team through the Agile project management module, granting access to all the documents to effectively manage your team and project.

Quantity Surveyors

Intuitive workflow. Takeoff with confidence.

With the intuitive takeoff tool you can work with confidence that the schedule you create is accurate. Once you have this schedule drawn up you can share this directly with the estimator through the cloud service. Not only will this create transparency but it will help you when aligning the costs against income on site.

1. For all types of HOT Equipment insulation (Glass Fiber, Mineral Wool and Calcium Silicate), the work hour units are based on the following erection method:
Shell cover (blanket or block) is applied with staggered joint arrangement. Top and bottom edges are securely tied over support rings with wire on 12-inch centers. Vertical and horizontal seams are laced together by interlocking the wire mesh and with wire ties where necessary. The insulation is secured in place with bands spaced on 12-inch centers.
Head cover is shaped so that all sections closely fit the contour of the head and are laced together with wire, or are secured with bands on 12-inch centers at tangent line. Exposed head cover is secured with bands attached to a 1⁄4” round steel rod, with a floating ring on the top and a circumferential band at the tangent line of the vessel head. Unexposed head cover is secured with wire to insulation supports provided by the vessel manufacturer.
Weatherproof jacket on vertical equipment is supported on S-clips spaced on 4-foot centers. The jacketing for vertical and horizontal equipment is secured with bands spaced on 12-inch centers with one band at each circumferential lap. On vertical equipment, band loops are included on each band to prevent vertical movement. Weatherproof jacket on exposed vessel heads is a flat metal sheet cut into “pie” pieces and secured with screws on 3-inch centers.
2. For all types of COLD Equipment insulation (Cellular Glass and Polyurethane), the work hour units are based on the following erection method:
Shell cover (block) is applied with staggered joint arrangement. Joints are buttered with joint sealer. In double layer applications, the inner layer is applied without joint sealer. Each layer is secured with bands on 12-inch centers. Outer layer joints are offset from inner layer joints. Vapor barrier is outer layer only. Joints are sealed with a foil-to-mylar 3-inch wide strip applied over the vapor barrier. Contraction joints are included as 11⁄2” wide, packed with 2” of fiberglass blanket material, on 12-foot maximum centers.
Head cover is shaped so that all sections closely fit the contour of the head. Joints are buttered with joint sealer. In double layer applications, the inner layer is applied without joint sealer. Exposed head cover is secured with bands attached to a 1⁄4” round steel rod, with a floating ring on the top and a circumferential band at the tangent line of the vessel head. Unexposed head cover is secured with wire to insulation supports provided by the vessel manufacturer.
Weatherproof jacket on vertical equipment is supported on S-clips spaced on 4-foot centers. The jacketing for vertical and horizontal equipment is secured with bands spaced on 12-inch centers with one band at each circumferential lap. Each band is equipped with one breather spring.

Work hour units include cutting, beveling and welding.
Work hour units are for welding in-place. For weld bay, multiply standard units by 80%.
With proper and conscientious application of these construction norms and man-hours for preparing estimates, the estimator will calculate hourly time requirements i.e. the man-hours required for the erection. The man-hours (mhr) do not account for any particular condition or PRODUCTIVITY EFFICIENCY PERCENTAGES (PEP, Leistungsfähigkeit – Prozentsatz)
No allowance / costs have been allowed in the above mentioned formulas for supporting of pipe work, X-raying, cranage, pressure testing, pickling, passivation of stainless steel pipes and working at height
