SNC-Lavalin Expands Use of Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise Software

SNC-Lavalin Group, an engineering and construction company, has expanded the use of Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise engineering design and data management software to streamline operations, optimize work processes and increase productivity and profitability.

After a successful SmartPlant Enterprise implementation in its nuclear division and months of intense evaluation, SNC-Lavalin enhanced its existing 3D CAD technology in its light industry and mining and metallurgy divisions, enabling true work sharing between regional offices and consortium partners and adding repeatable design flexibility to its projects. Standardizing on the Intergraph platform in the three divisions also will allow SNC-Lavalin to optimize resources, work processes and efficiencies due to the technology SmartPlant Enterprise provides, said Intergraph.

Derek Pinder, manager of engineering at SNC-Lavalin, said: "Intergraph's breadth of integrated solutions and the availability of highly skilled local support were pivotal in our decision to expand our use of SmartPlant Enterprise products to help us achieve increased profitability through greater engineering efficiency. This expansion will continue as SNC develops new projects."
