Davit Program

SPEC provided Engineering Design Services as well as fabrication, installation and construction oversight of vessel entry and retrieval platform davit hoist systems for ten existing vessels within a pharmaceutical process area. SPEC’s civil and structural engineers designed and prepared construction drawings for the prefabricated davit arm connection and anchorage to the supporting platform steel considering OSHA’s regulations for fall protection and fall arrest load ratings. SPEC secured and awarded the fabrication and installation of the davit anchorage and structural platform modifications to a local contractor, and SPEC provided oversight for the field construction services associated with the installation. SPEC personnel completed site specific safety orientation to gain badge access to restricted clean rooms to complete the work scope. Final walk-downs with the client of the installed platform davit systems were conducted to obtain acceptance of the finished product prior to releasing the construction contractor from service.  SPEC maintained and provided record drawings for the work.
