Electrical, Instrumentation & Controls (EI&C)

An Integrated EI&C Team is Critical to Project Success

Do you have a need for an integrated system of automation and controls to efficiently operate your plant?

The Journey Approach


An integrated and cohesive team approach ensures consistent execution amongst all disciplines.


Our design group is the best in the field, both in terms of complex technical understanding as well as construction and commissioning support.


Fit-for-purpose designs with a focus on constructibility and operability.

We can support you in:

A key part of our multi-disciplined engineering services, our EI&C team is experienced in developing and designing electrical and control systems with full support from other disciplines to provide a fully integrated service offering.

The EI&C team participates in front-end engineering studies through to detailed engineering, construction, start-up and commissioning, and turnover to operations. Our team is practiced in the areas of electrical design, instrumentation and controls, and automation to ensure assets are designed to provide the required operator monitoring and control of the facility as well as allowing for future expansions as required.

The electrical scope typically could take up 30% of a project’s budget but accounts for up to 80% of cost increases; our team believes in the mantras of fit-for-purpose designs and avoiding the traps of over-engineering designs or cost overruns without compromising safety, constructability, and operability.

Our expert team with multi-year experience has designed and built assets for both the upstream and midstream sectors and in pilot plants, greenfield processing, brownfield projects, and the evaluation of new technologies.
