“Phoenix Group of Companies understands the unique demands of the industrial sector and the requirements for success,” says Paul Walsh, Vice – President, Business Development. “We prioritize responsive communication with our clients to provide timely insights for consistent quality on every project.”
Phoenix’s state-of-the-art fabrication facility was built to handle a diverse range of metals and alloys to manage projects of any size or complexity, says Walsh. “Our internal processes have been exhaustively refined to reduce defects and disruptions to production runs. With over 40 Acres of space, Phoenix has the flexibility to produce and house multiple projects at any given time, providing integrated support when and where our clients need it most.”
Transparency and accountability via project reporting are crucial to building and maintaining trust with clients from Day One. Phoenix has only been able to offer reliable, full-scale services to our clients based on this trust. “Once it’s established, we won’t stop working to build upon that foundation we’ve built together.”
Innovations in the Fabrication Industry
The Phoenix Group was established in an era of uncertainty and volatility—an environment that eventually proved to be the ideal conditions to force our team to adapt to change quickly and adopt new technologies in order to survive. As Phoenix adopted more sophisticated systems, innovation became second nature, and the company went from surviving to thriving, while always delivering this same passion for its clients.
“Our integrated services extend across multiple facets of a project lifecycle; with our modular design services, Phoenix Industrial Group of Companies can support projects from design to completion, and any stage between,” says Walsh. “Our proprietary, cutting-edge ERP system is leading the industry in innovative document control systems and modular customization, enabling our teams to design and deliver your solutions onsite faster and at lower costs.”
“With our advanced systems and technologies, we are able to provide more accurate monitoring and reporting of your existing project resources to share timely insights with your team,” says Walsh. “Let Phoenix help you make better business decisions with real-time data to ensure the success of your project.”
Phoenix specializes in a particularly progressive approach to project work known as workface planning, which provides clear, concise, up-to-date analytics to ensure greater accuracy in project planning from the get-go.
“Workface planning is the holistic approach that focuses on getting the right things—funds, tools, resources, or information—to the right people at the right time,” says Walsh. “With proper planning and project scoping, Phoenix has helped many clients save money and improve productivity for large-scale construction projects. Our team is at the forefront of this progressive practice. We collaborate across teams and divisions to communicate progress, control costs, and ensure that multiple projects are operating efficiently while maintaining absolute visibility with our clients.”
“Our primary goal with workface planning is to prepare onsite teams to avoid cost overruns from any inefficiencies that might happen due to errors in front-end planning, procurement, design, organization, construction, and maintenance.”
The two biggest projects Phoenix is currently involved with is a Petrochemical Facility in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. This project included the fabrication and assembly of 96 full Alberta-sized modules and site mechanical scope and pre-commissioning. The company is also working on a large project in the Alberta Oil Sands completing mechanical, Structural and rotating equipment scope.
