Who We Are
How We Meet A Higher Standard
Fundamentally we exist for one reason: To accelerate our clients’ path to success. Our approach is simple; we put the client’s interests first. We don’t stop until it’s right. And we’ll do whatever it takes to get there.
We bring top-tier expertise to every stage of a project, from creating comprehensive, detailed project plans to achieving full-scale production operations, into rigorous asset management, reliability, and sustainability activities. We are your choice.
- When your project requires planned, managed, and documented high quality to exacting global standards
- When you need high-performance teams on mission-critical projects
- When your project is complex, high-visibility, and carries significant risk
Philosophically and practically, we believe that quality, cost and schedule can be mutually reinforcing – trade-offs are not necessary. Short-changing the focus on quality usually means problems down the road – problems that can cost money and delay the schedule. But if quality is built in from the start, then both the project delivery and the operational efficiency objectives can be achieved with a much higher degree of assurance.
We believe that world class operations successfully plan and integrate three areas: product/process/end-user requirements; people; and equipment/automation/facility technology. All of our services focus on integrating these areas necessary for successful operations, as applied to regulated manufacturing, mission critical facilities, energy-efficient buildings, patient-critical facilities, and complex operations.
Since our founding in 1996, we have shepherded strategic projects for some of the highest profile companies in numerous regulated industries. Look at our portfolio to see the scope, range, and complexity of projects we have brought to successful conclusions. We have now delivered over half a billion dollars in services for hundreds of clients across thousands of projects, ranging from under $1,000 to over $30 million.
Our very first project involved a critical shutdown/ facility upgrade across three buildings, executed against a critical schedule so life-saving product inventory was maintained. This type of engagement and result have been repeated numerous times, and as a result we have established an enviable reputation for meeting aggressive schedules. We are engaged to help deliver the largest projects – from billion dollar biotech facilities to the world’s largest data centers.
Our industry leadership has been recognized – both in the form of awards by global professional societies and in customer awards. Most of our current clients have been clients for many years, including our very first client, now celebrating 20+ years of service.
We are your global partner in providing professional services to enhance operational performance and reliability.
When you look at our services it’s clear that we bring extensive experience, detailed knowledge, and an extreme can-do attitude to everything we do, from the earliest stages of projects to the decommissioning of a facility.
Our clients demand technical and project management expertise, attention to detail, tenacity, innovation, and responsiveness to meet a wide range of requirements and overcome a broad range of contingencies.
And we deliver. Consistently. Expertly. Completely.
Diverse teams perform better. Diversity is a strength for our company. We pledge that CAI will be operated in a way that is fair and equitable to all – our employees, our customers, and the broader society.
It is our responsibility to listen, take action, fail forward, and repeat. We’re reminded that when we see injustice, it’s up to us to step in and make a difference. In other words, we must ACTIVELY work for equality and justice.
At CAI, we are committed to living our Foundational Principles, both professionally and personally:
- We act with integrity
- We serve each other
- We serve society
- We work for our future
We are all dedicated to creating a future where diversity is celebrated, equality and justice are the reality for all of society, and everyone is treated with mutual respect.
