A commitment to critical project execution that borders on the obsessive

At AltairStrickland, obsessing over the smallest details is an enormous part of who we are—and a huge benefit for our clients. Ours is a culture of innovation.We are not content to do things the same way they have always been done. AltairStrickland has been executing turnarounds, revamps and upgrades for the refining, petrochemical, chemical, ammonia and power industries since 1976. As mechanical engineering specialists, our core business is focused on Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units (FCCUs), Delayed Coking Units (DCUs), and Ammonia Units.

Process-driven with a Focus on Painstaking Pre-planning
Our fanatical focus on pre-planning helps ensure a safer, more cost-effective turnaround every time. When a million pounds of steel is being hoisted from a million-dollar crane, that’s no time for costly surprises. We use AutoCAD,® 3D surveys, even plywood to build full-scale models to explore virtually every conceivable what-if scenario to assess potential constructability issues before they become issues.

Champions of Innovation
For 30+ years, we’ve spearheaded sensible, efficient solutions for virtually every type of turnaround challenge imaginable. From pre-planning problem solving to on-the-job, real-time innovations, it’s hard to imagine a situation we can’t handle. We welcome your challenge.

On-time, On-budget
Being on-time, on-budget and ultra-efficient in the work we perform are paramount to every job we take on. Our pre-planning services are targeted to encompass every facet of the project, and the AltairStrickland engineering team has the experience, resources and expertise to manage complex projects—from concept to completion.

Not just What we do,but How we do it
The AltairStrickland approach is comprehensive. We perform project studies and analyses along with lift engineering and rigging studies that provide a precise roadmap—from engineering drawings on to fabrication, field assembly and start-up. As always, these services help eliminate serious problems, delays and budget overruns.
