Commissioning & Qualification

We set the industry standard when it comes to commissioning and qualification project delivery.  Our unique qualifications include:

  • Knowledge Solutions
    CAI sets the pace for industry leadership, innovative approaches, and real-word application of modern C&Q approaches. We helped “write the book” on ASTM E2500 in more ways than one.  Our experts drove content and creation of this standard, led development of industry guidance documents and training, and are now leading field implementation of these principles.  We have authored and implemented corporate programs on risk based C&Q for several multi-national biopharmaceutical companies.
  • Project Solutions
    Our employee-owners are trained and qualified to deliver to exacting quality standards while managing cost, schedule, and scope. Project managers are formally trained and assessed on their knowledge of our quality standards – an assessment they must pass to manage projects. The result?  High performance and well-trained teams that can hit the ground running, greatly reducing ramp up time and improving quality for your projects. Our team is your fire and forget solution.
