Using different forms of engineering such as mechanical and piping, civil and structural, electrical and controls, we help increase productivity on your industrial manufacturing line, ensure quality products, and drive success.
Remediation & Assessment
Understanding the extent and condition of any structural defect is critical to the process of rectification. A correct diagnosis requires expert investigation.
Utilizing all the best tactics project coordination has to offer, we will keep your industrial projects on time and on budget.
We are a multi-disciplinary engineering firm offering comprehensive design solutions. Our commitment is for excellence in design, attention to detail and value for money. Customer satisfaction is a priority and we will work with your business to ensure project delivery is on time and on budget.
Design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, and railways.
The discipline that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.
The discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.
Utilities engineers work in the energy industry, including electricity, gas, and water. These professionals help energy producers to monitor and create more efficient forms of energy.
Part of civil engineering in which structural engineers are educated to create the 'bones and muscles' that create the form and shape of man made structures.
A sub-discipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer.
Process Piping Engineering
Piping design, the detailed specification of the physical piping layout within a process plant or commercial building.
The optimization of complex processes, systems, or organizations. Industrial engineers work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, person-hours, machine time, energy and other resources that do not generate value.
Remediation and Assessment Services
Understanding the extent and condition of any structural defect is critical to the process of rectification. A correct diagnosis requires expert investigation. We have expertise is assessment and remediation of concrete repair, structural strengthening, facade restoration, structural crack repair, and cathodic protection. Cooper & Associates can provide the necessary experience and knowledge to ensure the best solutions are developed.
With robust capabilities in process and industrial engineering, capital planning, engineering documentation, industrial construction, automated system design, component installation, maintenance and fabrication, we are an all-inclusive process systems service provider. Every project begins with an on-site evaluation of your system and manufacturing requirements and we follow through with good project management and open communication to provide the ideal combination of our design-build expertise and your specific industry knowledge.
We offer upfront documentation of project budgeting and schedules, equipment recommendations and pricing, computer flow modeling, and 3D assembly drawings to reach the most exacting specifications and anticipate problems before production begins. We also provide onsite management of construction, fabrication, installation, and extensive system performance tests. Our experience ranges in everything from alcoholic beverages and large-scale bakeries to hazardous materials and bulk solid processing; you name it, we can do it.
