Drafting and As-built Services:

ONYX Drafting Services LLC's primary focus is drafting, from client supplied redlines to field as-builts to EHT Iso's and more using all of the latest design and drafting CAD 2D and 3D software. ONYX Drafting Services' field crew has as-built some of the largest oil & gas facilities in Alberta. Our qualified technicians will precisely document existing operations and comply with strict discipline-specific standards. Accurate, consistent and cost effective, our as-building teams know what it takes to produce a drawing package for effective HAZOP studies or an addition to any size facility. ONYX and our field crews are an excellent resource for auditing your facility design. By as-building without prejudice we allow you to critique the engineering and construction of your assets. Projects that have been as-built are simpler to complete and less costly. Without as-building, project conflicts do not become apparent until construction, with the inevitable result of costly changes and delays in the project. We have earned a reputation for delivering an excellent product on time and on budget. All of our field personnel hold certificates for H2S Alive, first aid, WHMIS, and are current with Industry Recommended Practices.
