The entire property is securely fenced and well lit to ensure security of Radium and client assets. Our 8,000 sq. ft. cold storage tent combined with our 22,000 sq. ft. fabrication shop can serve our customers needs year round. A fleet of support construction equipment, hydro-testing lay down and dedicated NDE safe exclusion area are all strategically located within the mod yard for cost efficient safe work execution.
3D LASER SCANNING
Radium utilizes 3D technology to provide our customers 360 degrees of visual aid complete with dimensional measurements with an accuracy tolerances within 2 millimeters.
Radium has the ability to produce a 4D schedule to highlight some of the issues that a project might face. This schedule gives a visual reference to how different pieces of the project will be impacted based on their arrival on site or on which piece is being constructed. One of the simpler 4D schedules that can be shown, is the equipment schedule. The slideshow to the left illustrates the latter, where different pieces of equipment/piperacks arrived on site. By examining the 4D schedule, it was determined that certain pieces of equipment would no be able to be placed efficiently by the dates that they were arriving.

Our quality plan (QP) is a working document design to hold accountability for processes of fabrication, construction installation and maintenance turnarounds against code, special requirements and customer expectations. This will also describe the quality standards, both internally and externally to which the project will be accountable while compiling with all codes, regulations and standards locally, provincially and federally. At Radium we are committed to excellence to the highest level of our QP to our customers for products, services, suppliers and any subcontractors.
