Commercial and Industrial System Implementation Offering Shakes Up Automated Control Industries
HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – Oct. 29, 2019 – PRLog — In a move to proactively enhance control and automation system implementation and operation, Convergence Controls is evolving to add full-service Engineering and rebranding as Convergence Controls & Engineering (CCE). The CCE team have years of experience successfully supporting end-user industrial customers in system integration and field technical services to optimize control and automation systems, occasionally serving as the owner’s rep. With the addition of Engineering and Solution Services, CCE further enhances value to its clients by designing and implementing fully integrated systems. “Our clients routinely ask us to help them develop control narratives, cause and effect diagrams, and even troubleshoot loop and electrical drawings,” said Rob Crow, Principal, Convergence Controls & Engineering. “Today, in addition to those services, we can offer Front End Engineering Designs (FEED), project management and equipment procurement which complements our existing system integration and support services ensuring faster startups and more cost effect solutions.”
CCE has a strong track record offering integrated solutions that bridge the gap between engineering, construction and controls. In order to become a trusted partner, CCE team members work side by side with end user facility operators to support these systems long after construction is complete. “Our team members proactively learn client’s processes and combine that with our experience in the field. This allows us to avoid common engineering and construction oversights which makes implementation and operations in the long run much simpler and more cost effective,” says Rob Crow.
Additionally, CCE offers a unique combination of the best practices in engineering from industrial process automation with commercial controls while eliminating the bad habits that are typically seen in both. “We are combining the best aspects of vertical facility engineering and industrial process engineering to bring something new to the market,” says Jeff Visnic, Director of Engineering at CCE. “Too many vertical construction projects end with frustrated owners because their processes and systems aren’t integrated from the beginning. Therefore, subsystems either don’t work as intended or together, and no one takes ownership to resolve the facility manager’s concerns. Industrial projects might be better integrated and commissioned more rapidly but suffer from a lack of standards and documentation. This leaves the facility operators trying to run their systems without knowing what was put in place during design and construction. With our unique understanding of both sectors, we can offer fully integrated solutions rapidly, ensuring long term ease of use and high reliability.”
Today, CCE is differentiating itself as a leader in system rehabilitation and implementation by delivering an integrated team from project inception to end of life. “As a facility manager or operator, envision having a fully integrated system and a single partner to help you operate it efficiently,” says Jeff Visnic. “One team from design and equipment selection, during construction, integration, and commissioning, to on-going operation and upgrades.”
Further, CCE is simplifying the engineering and operation of facilities by offering a variety of packaged solutions and services. These services include turn-key control packages, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) as a service, as well as other managed services. Aaron Pfeifer, Director of Business Solutions, is excited about the results they are already delivering to customers. “Imagine receiving a LACT, heater treater, or HVAC system that is pre-programmed and with complete documentation, and fully integrated to the rest of your facility. Add in subscription optimization and audit services, cloud-hosted systems, and custom application development across environments across your facilities for one cohesive system to empower business decisions. That’s unparalleled in the industry right now.”
For the first time, there will be one resource in the market that offers a combination of engineering and system integration services which will ensure effective system implementation, across multiple market sectors, including civic, education, energy, fabrication, health, mining, mission-critical, science and technology, water and more.
