Software & References Used in E Services


Hanlon Engineering’s capabilities exceed most firms.  HE staff has expertise in all types of CAD capabilities, which include but are not limited to the use of the following software: AutoCAD, REVIT, ADOBE, OFFICE, RISA, RS LOGIX, INTOUCH, HYTRAN, PIPEFLO, and CEASER.

HE commissioning efforts, with QA/QC in place for all disciplines and consultant work, field verification protocols, digital automation practices within the firm, and other value added elements benefit a project that is on time and under budget.  HE prides itself in creating a collaborative environment where Client receives the project while HE maintains accountability throughout.  Beyond meeting the timeline and cost targets, HE designs each project to meet a greater durability, longer term lifecycle, and cost efficiency for reducing future facility expenditures.

Utilizing the In-House Proprietary Software (HIPS), this allows HE to share compatible data with Contractors and Vendors between Autodesk, RISA and other programs.  This gives HE the capacity to make changes three-dimensionally, in all formats simultaneously.  One of only a few firms that actually use Software Automation Capabilities effectively as a design tool to identify conflicts, and improve the overall quality of our work through conflict detection and resolution.


Hanlon Engineering stays on the leading edge of Code regulations and Professional accountability by supporting Projects utilizing the vast and up-to-date references listed below.  HE provides this as part of the QA/QC training/work resource for all employees.  The directive is to ensure that all design decisions can be source documented, Code relevant, quickly obtained, able to meet HE high standard of quality, and be used to assist in Client Education.
