Starting with pre-project conferences to outline the scope of work, manpower needs, and scheduling issues, our contractors keep lines of communication open throughout the life of the project. We also work to complete projects without production missing a beat by adjusting work schedules around peak production hours and scheduling shifts during non-typical work hours.
We actively develop industry partnerships to provide customers with exactly what is needed on the job site. A sampling of our partnerships includes Siemens Generation Service, General Electric (APM), Exelon, and FlowServe. For instance...
When a demand for turbine experts surfaced, we worked with Atlantic Plant Maintenance and Siemens to develop gas and steam turbine qualification programs to train our millwrights in the newest power plant technology. Training includes working on equipment in our turbine training facility that was provided by these partners for hands-on instruction.
Quality Work via Quality Training
At the UBC’s International Training Center, millwrights hone skills in confined-space using our turbine pit. They work on gas and steam turbines, compressors, and pumps. They gain skills by working with two 35-ton overhead bridge cranes or four 20-ton overhead bridge cranes.
At the core of every training course and on the minds of every jobsite crew is safety. A safe work site is achieved only by comprehensive training for every millwright on every project. A full line of safety courses and qualifications are offered to our millwrights every year.
We spend millions of dollars each year to train our thousands of millwrights–from first-year apprentices to Superintendents. Manpower shortages anywhere in North America are alleviated by UBC Millwrights, thanks to our standardized training and mobility, so that every carpenter arrives at every job site with the same set of superior skills.
As a result, UBC Millwrights are regarded as being the best trained and most well-prepared for any project in any location. For instance:
In response to the rise in manufacturing plant automation, our Mechatronics Technician training program now develops skills needed to assemble, program, operate, and maintain the mechanical, electronic, and computing components of robotics.
