Hargrove can function as a Main Automation Contractor (MAC) performing large turnkey projects. Together with Hargrove Engineers + Constructors, a full-service Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) company, Hargrove can perform all phases of project execution from preliminary engineering through detailed design, procurement, construction, startup, and operations.
Our expertise is multi-discipline. Typical automation projects involve multiple areas of expertise such as integrating a PLC into a DCS system, incorporating process safety requirements and producing necessary documentation combined with processing unit upgrades, performing power and facility siting studies for new I/O panels, or performing a cybersecurity audit for a new or upgraded control system installation. We are experienced with each discipline individually, as well as managing full projects; our team is particularly adept at identifying scope gaps within a project when there are multiple vendors involved. Even when each piece of the project is executed flawlessly, a system only works well when all pieces run together. Our team has a clear understanding of the required coordination between automation disciplines, at what points in the project the coordination is needed, and how changes in one automation discipline affects other disciplines. Hargrove Teammates are experts at weaving together all disciplines seamlessly. Mitigating scope gap early on in a project saves major headaches and unnecessary cost.
Committed to seeking out and adopting the best practices of the industry, we are a Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) certified system integrator. The rigorous certification process takes place every three years, examining ten areas of business practices, project management, and quality system delivery. These ten areas of best practices have become the core of how we operate. This means you can be assured that you are hiring a well-managed integrator who will be around for the long-haul.
In addition, Hargrove was recognized as “Integrator of the Year” by CSIA for our innovation and significant contribution to the automation community.
With Hargrove, you get the right experience from the right people in system integration working alongside you to meet and exceed your expectations. Working together as one team – that’s Hargrove.
