At Guardian Manufacturing, we pride ourselves on the ability to meet all the needs of your unique project. Ensuring our customers reach their project goals in a safe and timely matter is our top priority. We listen to your goals and issues you may have and help decide on a course of action to maximize productivity, improve assets, and lower risk.

Our field-tested management team employs Lean Construction Management Techniques for our control system installations. Lean Design and Construction is a better way to design and build. Lean Design and Construction is a system of processes and culture built on a commitment to collaboration and knowledge-sharing. This system helps in:

  • Understanding value from the customer’s point of view.
  • Determining the required activities to deliver the customer’s expectations of value.
  • Eliminating wasteful activities.
  • Team collaboration development of workflow that is reliable and predictable.
  • Development of project schedule from the identified activities and workflow.
  • Performing pull plan and scheduling with all stakeholders and foremen to ensure everyone has proper communication of all planned tasks and assignments.

Our team from owners to electricians participate in these techniques to ensure visibility of what the customer values and how we execute to reach their goal.

Cost Estimating is a valuable tool for determining the scope of work for a project. Guardian’s construction knowledge and technological capabilities allow us to accurately and efficiently produce cost estimates to determine a project’s financial feasibility. We will write specifications for the project and provide an accurate estimate.

Guardian can help to identify and assess risks to an organization. We have an on-staff TUV Rheinland Functional Safety Engineer, ISO 13849. Risk Assessments are performed in the automotive, entertainment, manufacturing, and aerospace industries. Assessments include:

  • Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA)-evaluating a process to identify where it might fail to assess impact.
  • Hazardous Risk Assessments (HRA)-identifying hazards and risks that may cause harm.
  • Implementing the Risk Reduction in your Control System.
  • Streamlining the development process and maximizing the ROI.
  • Ensuring your control system meets the required safety standards.

A significant change in the construction sector is the development of Building Information Modeling (BIM).  At Guardian, our model-based working method makes a substantial impact on the collaboration of the project participants.  Our software:

  • Uses 3D visualization models to see a building before it’s built
  • Automatically updates floor plans, elevations, and sections when there’s a change
  • Produces consistent, coordinated, and complete building designs and documentation
