Shop drawings are generated for the  proposed helideck at our plant in  Spartanburg. Fabrication is carried out at our plants in  South Carolina based on fabrication  documents and our fabrication Standards  and Rules.  Trial fitting of the framing is conducted prior  to testing to ensure fitting and compliance  with the design drawings. NDT and FAT testings are then conducted  as per project specs and standard industry  practices and in the presence of Class  surveyors.  The helideck is then prepared for shipping  either in containers or flat bed trucks.    Erection drawings are prepared for the  assembly and installation of the helideck.
