CADconform and the Utilities Industry
Utilities encompass the essential services delivered to our homes and business which include water, natural gas (in some locations) and electricity.
Safe, reliable production and transmission of electricity is critical for our economy and our way of life. Owner/operators of utility and transmission companies are responsible for the full lifecycle of the facilities and infrastructure required, which includes power stations, sub-stations, transformers, power lines and more.
The design and construction of some of these facilities, for example power lines and sub-stations, are redundant in design and provide opportunity for standardization and cost savings. The operation and maintenance of facilities in this inherently dangerous industry requires constant attention, with particular care for matters related to health, safety and environmental (HS&E) issues.
Standardized data and information in CAD drawings can provide your business with strategic business value during the full lifecycle of these facilities.
Using CADconform to promote and enforce 100% conformance to CAD standards lets utility owner/operators use standards-conformed CAD data to:
- Provide seamless transfer of CAD data and improved interoperability among multiple consultants and contractors to keep projects on schedule and get facilities online and operational, on time and within budget.
- Contribute to the overall data integrity of data and information stored in CAD drawings for strategic business re-use for the operation and maintenance of these facilities, re-use which includes systems for: safety and security, regulatory compliance, asset management, document management, and more.
