Achieve operational readiness with fully integrated control systems.

Integrated teams, integrated controls systems.

Don’t leave consideration for the technical integration of your process systems and equipment until later in your project. This increases the risk of schedule delays and costly workarounds. Instead, working with control systems integration experts who are plugged into your project’s design and construction teams from the start ensures you’re making optimal equipment and systems selections, addressing gaps before they happen, circumventing long-lead times or supply chain issues, and setting your process and facility up for operational readiness on time. This is our end-to-end support of your project.

How can CRB help you? 

Leverage the expertise, experience, and deep industry relationships of our Control Systems Integration consultants on your project to give you deeper insight, more advanced automation capabilities, and opportunities for better process and facilities management. We guide you through all phases of integration:

  • Making initial decisions about what technology and equipment your facility needs, who can best deliver those solutions, and how those systems work together
  • Anticipating and solving challenges with innovative solutions before equipment is even manufactured
  • Collaborating across teams, including with trade partners, to identify all problems and possibilities with your project plans to pave the way for smoother execution
  • Ensuring that systems and equipment are in place, fully functional and commissioned on schedule.


Meet the Team

Our automation team at CRB has the consulting expertise and experience to understand how decisions during conception and design can impact a facility throughout the years.

Jim Vortherms, Senior Director of Automation Delivery, helps clients use and manage data to make smarter manufacturing and equipment decisions. Frequently involved in a project from start to finish, he plays a major role in the scope of work development, scheduling, resource allocation, budget management, and business development support.

Technology and automation should help your facility run more efficiently. Putting those pieces in place shouldn’t slow you down. Our Control Systems Integration services make it easier.

Let’s transform the way your facility performs.

From the development of system architecture and hardware selection to the installation and programming for control systems and operator interfaces, our engineers bring the latest technologies and applications to the best approach for you.

Your facility is more than walls and a roof.

Intelligent, innovative facility design enables an efficient process and inspires talent. The right facility engineering solution relies on an understanding of your unique requirements and a breadth of experience to design for your goals. From highly regulated aseptic processing areas to functional, collaborative instructional and research spaces, we engineer your facility around your process, your product and your people.

Central utilities are critical to maintaining a functional, comfortable and, most importantly, safe environment.

If you’re housing a highly-regulated aseptic process, producing a perishable food product, or working with potent or toxic materials, the proper MEP solutions are necessary to maintain the quality of your product and keep your people and end-users safe. Even in laboratory, office and academic spaces, the right MEP is important to promote productivity and wellbeing. You need more than just MEP engineers; you need experts in the requirements of these unique spaces. Our multidisciplinary teams collaborate throughout your project to design MEP solutions that complement your process and support your goals.

Increase speed to market, return on investment, quality and safety with a perfected process.

Whether you’re creating a new process, scaling up or identifying improvements, turn to the firm that has the process engineering capabilities to design solutions. Our broad range of process engineering expertise combines with the application of dynamic simulation techniques, to provide you a practical process that operates efficiently and economically. Focused on output, energy and safety, we are committed to helping you increase your return on investment, improve production yields and enhance capabilities.

The structural integrity of your building shouldn’t be an afterthought.

Maximize your project’s efficiency, constructability and value with structural design integrated into your engineering solution. You ensure that the framework of your facility supports its design and capabilities when our in-house structural engineers collaborate on your project from the start. Your project comes together seamlessly with one engineering solution in one place, enhancing your building and your bottom line.
