Don’t let the stress of certifications and procedures hold you back. Let Steel Dimensions handle the details so that you can focus on what you do best – delivering quality steel fabrication and erection services. Steel Dimensions facilitates the process of erector and steel fabricator certification, and provides CWB retained engineer services for CSA standard W47.1 division 2 companies.
Our Welding Engineering Services
In Canada, companies that manufacture welded steel structures are required to hold CWB certification. While mandatory for projects within Canadian borders, the certification is also recognized throughout the rest of North America. Steel fabricators and erectors that deal with steel structures must possess CWB certification in order to participate in projects or export their products to Canada.
Steel Dimensions turns obtaining certifications for your steel fabrication and erection projects into a breeze. Our team of engineers will prepare welding procedure specifications (WPS) and data sheets (WPDS), needed for your certifications. For welding processes and joints that are not pre-approved, we offer services in preparing and supervising procedure qualification reports (PQR). And for CSA standard W47.1 division 2 companies, we offer retained engineer services.
Retained Engineer Services
It is a legal requirement for all steel structures in Canada to be fabricated and erected by companies that hold CWB (Canadian Welding Bureau) certification. To become certified as Division I, a company must employ a CWB-certified welding engineer. To be certified as Division II, a company must retain a CWB-certified welding engineer.
If you are a steel fabricator or an erector, it may not be cost-effective to employ a full-time CWB Certified Engineer. By using Steel Dimensions’ Retained Engineering services, you can eliminate the expense of hiring a full-time CWB Certified Engineer, yet maintain full legal compliance under Division II.
