What do you need? We can help.

Behrent Engineering’s staff of talented engineers and designers from all disciplines is the best source for assistance with plant layout. Whether you need engineering support for laying out a new plant, reorganizing, renovating or remodeling an existing plant, or schematic representation for a new project proposal, we can help.


Project Management

Rely on us to protect your interests.

Behrent’s Project Managers want to learn about your production facilities; their capacities, their risks, their people, their limitations. This supports their leading the engineering and design efforts so the resulting upgrades or new processes merge seamlessly with existing systems.

Scope, Schedule, Quality, Budget; regardless of your priorities, every project must satisfy these four goals. Miss any one, you’re not satisfied, and neither is Behrent.

Behrent’s experienced Project Managers take a hands-on approach to managing your project to a successful conclusion. Utilizing the Best Practices of the Project Management Institute (PMI), our Project Managers clearly define and actively manage project scope, schedule, budget and quality on every project. Smaller projects are managed using the same process as the larger ones. To maximize value and efficiency, Behrent Project Managers will work with you to ensure that you get exactly what you need, nothing more, nothing less.

3D Laser Scanning

Eliminate the costly errors and guesswork… As-built drawings and 3D models with pinpoint accuracy.

Behrent Engineering provides cost effective facility documentation and modeling. Create accurate, full scale, 3D Point Cloud Models of existing plant processes and conditions.

Facilities and processes change over the years, often without the original drawings and models being updated. In older facilities, if the blueprints are still available, they are frequently illegible and misleading. The cost to do manual field measurements to update those old drawings can be cost prohibitive when added to the total cost of the project.

Eliminate errors from manual measurements, and reduce time in the field, documenting existing conditions with Behrent Engineerings 3D Laser Scanning services.

Key areas of expertise:
  • 3D Integrated Modeling
  • 3D Laser Scanning
  • Point Cloud Post Processing
  • Structural Steel and Component Sizing
  • Pipe & Conduit Sizing
  • Field Dimensions & CAD Drawings
  • As-Built Modeling & Documentation
  • Complete Design-to-Build Packages
  • Equipment Footprint and Placement
  • Asset and Facility Management
  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Insurance Documentation

EPC & EPCM Services

Think “design-build”.

Accinge Industrial LLC was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Behrent Engineering, acting as an EPC and EPCM contractor. Behrent handles the engineering and Accinge takes care of the construction.

Sometimes referred to as “turn-key”, EPC refers to Engineering, Procurement, and Construction. The EPC contractor is responsible for detailed engineering, procurement of equipment and materials, and construction of the project through a contract directly with the owner.

EPCM refers to Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management. As an EPCM contractor the owner contracts directly with subcontractors for construction services and to the EPCM contractor for construction management on behalf of the owner.

Key areas of expertise:
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Scope of Work Documents
  • Cost Estimating & Budgeting
  • Scheduling
  • Detailed Engineering Design
  • Bid Support
  • Contract Administration
