Spool Tracking – All pipe spools fabricated by Turner Industries are marked and tracked by computer software, ensuring their location as well as the status of the job. This data can then be seamlessly transitioned into our field spool-tracking mobile application where it is catalogued and tracked by location on site. The mobile app is also capable of accepting pipe spool data from outside sources. 

Stop Work Authority – At Turner Industries, all employees are empowered to stop any work they feel violates any of our seven life critical rules: 1) working with valid permit when required 2) fall protection 3) confined space entry 4) lock out-tag out/energy isolation 5) working under a suspended load 6) line breaking 7) no drugs, alcohol, or contraband. It is our belief that if there is zero tolerance for violation of a life critical rule, then employees must be allowed to refuse work that can’t be done other than by violating a life critical rule, and that refusal must have no adverse consequences for the employee. In fact, an employee who refuses to violate a life critical rule should get positive feedback for doing so as this presumably avoided a high-risk situation.

Structural Construction – We have performed structural steel erection on projects ranging from minor steel installations to single projects with over 23,000 tons of steel. We also use pre/sub-assembly, whenever possible, to assist with both labor productivity and project schedule requirements.

WinPCS® – Turner Industries’ award-winning system, part of a field execution methodology that ensures every task on the turnaround and/or construction project is tracked on a shift-by-shift basis. This tool has a proven track record and provides a physical percent complete and productivity measurement, giving us a definitive advantage over the competition. The basic functionality of WinPCS® interfaces the actual direct labor man-hours expended to the actual field progress work tasks for a given window of time. WinPCS® focuses on techniques for management of direct labor because it is the most volatile resource and must be controlled if the project is to be successful. The amount of required materials to complete a project is definite and measurable, but the direct labor efficiency swings in direct proportion to the applied management techniques.

WeldTracker® – This proprietary software is used in the tracking of pipe and plate welding on projects – both construction and maintenance. The system is based around a weld log and associated tables that cover welders, weld procedures and pipe specifications. These combine to form a broad source of information on weld status, welder productivity, NDE frequency, etc., to supply site superintendents, managers and quality control inspectors with decision-making data.

WinTAKE® – A proprietary digitized take-off (estimating) system for the industrial marketplace. The system is integrated with planning/scheduling, project controls and job cost. Key benefits include quicker and more accurate estimates at the lowest level of project detail for all disciplines (Pipe, Steel, Civil, E&I). All of the disciplines have a similar look and feel, and data may be input via keyboard, mouse, or a digitizer pad.

WinTEAMS® – This proprietary estimating system is designed specifically for the industrial marketplace. The system is integrated with planning/scheduling and project controls. Key benefits include detailed, accurate estimates of different types of equipment, such as exchangers, towers, drums, etc. It is designed to quickly estimate these types of equipment for the turnaround and maintenance environments.

X-Ray Services – X-ray, or radiography exposures, can be used to inspect process piping, pressure vessels, valves, welds, etc.  for erosion, corrosion and volumetric integrity, providing an easily-viewed high-quality image as a permanent record of the component that has been inspected. Turner has the ability to utilize either Digital (DR), Computed (CR), Real -Time (RTR) or traditional film radiography (RT) techniques as per client specification.
