Schedule delays in construction can be costly! Travis Holland, San Antonio based Principal structural engineer, clearly understands this and worked with our client to complete a building construction observation for a manufacturing facility designed by BakerRisk through FaceTime on Tuesday, 7 April 2020.  The completion of the observation was an important step required by the owner prior to scheduling the concrete pour.  Along with photos and measurements taken by the client at Travis’s request, he was able to successfully complete the building construction observation so the owner could maintain the construction schedule and pour concrete the following Monday.

As demonstrated by Travis, BakerRisk leverages a variety of tools to remotely collect data and progress your projects even during COVID-19 without compromising on the fidelity and quality of our deliverables.  While in-person data collection is always preferred, we have used the following technologies to remotely collect data:

  • Photos, Videos
  • Remotely coordinated measurements
  • 3D scans
  • FaceTime calls

At BakerRisk, our engineers take pride in solving difficult and challenging problems, and are channeling that same spirit to solve the challenges in the current work from home environment to support our clients’  needs.

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
