We are currently training our teams in a few areas to increase effectiveness and lower project costs for our clients. These include:
- Lean 101 training and Continuous Improvement initiatives to minimize waste
- IPD training on new contracting strategies to encourage collaborative project delivery with Owners
- Use of Augmented Reality tools for more transparent project communications, especially when we are providing full EPC services
Each of these initiatives will be gradually introduced to our teams and how ONEC implements their projects and services.

Encouraging Education with ONEC

ONEC’s engineering team is thrilled to be participating in the DiscoverE training with the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta!

Capstone Project Mentoring
ONEC’s civil engineering team has been supporting a group of students from the University of Alberta’s Civil Engineering CivE 479 Capstone Mentoring Project.
They were assigned a full structural design of a building in Vancouver, BC from the substructure to the superstructure.
Our civil engineering team met with them regularly to provide design guidance and answer any questions they presented during the meetings. They were eager, worked hard, and received an Award of Merit for their final presentation!
This definitely acted as a learning experience for all while giving back to the University of Alberta!

ONEC and Trimble SiteVision – Transforming Your Industrial Projects
How would like to see your project before a shovel hits the ground?
What would happen if Design and Construction could see and agree on the project before the final schedule and budget is approved?
ONEC offers its clients breakthrough technologies to make the complex simple – by starting with the end in mind.
Our partnership with Trimble Site Vision and Team Vision allows you to see things that you can’t see – and view your future project in true life scale – in the existing surroundings. Move beyond traditional design and construction techniques and embrace an augmented reality communication platform.
- Real-time collaboration between owners, designers, construction, operators, and maintenance staff in a 3D environment
- Remotely manage projects with Site Vision being your eyes in the field
- Drastically reduce the need for scope change orders and Requests for Information through improved communication between all project stakeholders
- With GPS accuracy less than 1cm, Site Vision will improve safety and meet government regulations for excavations and inspections
ONEC’s team will help you manage a real-time as-built model of your facility, and, let you see it’s future – in the palm of your hand.
