Case Study

Highlights of $ 2 billion pipeline construction/compressor stations project:


  • Conducted a gap analysis of CMFs QMS/EMS against ISO 9001 and ISO 14001/OHSAS 18001 Standards.
  • Established quality management and environmental management system expectations from CMFs. The expectations included plans, procedures, checklists, forms and records. Specifically plans included environmental plan, quality plan, material handling/control plan, safety plan, construction management plan.
  • Guided CMFs in developing/revising/reviewing their management systems (ISO 9001 or equivalent) documentations to meet specific Trans Canada expectations.
  • Verified the implementation of CMFs management systems by auditing them at 33%, 66% and 100% construction completion stages by using pre-developed project specific checklists.
  • Assisted Trans-Canada Procurement department in evaluating quotations on compressor station packages from quality criteria standpoint. Verified quality of engineering discipline drawings and vendor drawings issued for pipeline construction.
  • Monitored, audited and evaluated the quality/environmental/OHS practices of prime contractors and sub-contractors.
  • Reviewed Trans Canada/Nova pipeline engineering quality management practices to consolidate into one package.
  • Led and managed the nonconformance reporting/resolution process for pipeline engineering and construction.
  • At the conclusion of the project, proposed a working model for pipeline engineering/construction for ISO 9001/14001/OHSMS management system.
