SRS Industrial was formed in 2002 to gain entrance into the market for
industrial construction services. From humble beginnings, core services
were centered around Specialty Rigging, Guyline Tensioning, Demolition,
and Heavy-lift Transportation. SRS has since grown to accommodate mar-
ket demand, offering a full range of services in Construction Management,
Plant Maintenance, Module Assembly, and Shop Fabrication.
SRS is managed by a team of experienced employees that have worked
together on some of the industry’s largest and most complex projects,
with an average industry experience level of 30+ years. With a common
drive to achieve, conservative ﬁnancial practices, and a history of success,
SRS is poised to emerge as a major industry player. With strong industry
partnerships in key sectors, we have the ability to execute a wide array of
technically complex projects.
“Our modern approach to construction helps forge long-term relationships
with our valued clients” - Stan Siewiertoka, President & Founder
Our mission is to become an innovative industry player in the industrial
construction market, while retaining the creativity and integrity that made
us who we are today.
SRS was founded with that mission and the mentality that teamwork is
the catalyst for company success. Our most important resource is our
employees and the knowledge and experience that they bring to the table.
With continued training and education, SRS promotes a management cul-
ture that can adapt to change in the face of growing market adversity.
Communication is a cornerstone to success. Employees are encouraged
to be creative with their ideas, as vision and innovation are essential in
proactively meeting the challenges of today’s environment.
SRS Jobsite Employee Appreciation Days
Ethics also form part of the core values which embody SRS culture. We
conduct business in a manner that earns the respect and admiration of
those around us through fairness and ethical dealings in all matters. Many
company policies are designed to guide employees towards acceptable
Proﬁtability is common culture among many organizations. At SRS, we
train employees in recognizing how teamwork, communication, ethical
practices, safety, and quality can lend themselves to creating a proﬁtable
venture for all parties involved in a project.
Health, Safety, and Environment are of paramount importance to SRS.
We have a detailed Risk Management System that outlines safe work
practices and procedures, and all employees and subcontractors are
thoroughly trained in our safety policies and codes of practice.
Various meetings and audits are held on a daily, weekly, and monthly
basis to assure conformance to our policies, and participation of our
subcontractors in these meetings and audits is mandatory.
As seen in the graph below, our commitment to safety has led us to
consistently outperform the industry average for safety performance.
A declining trend in TRI frequency is evident as our program matured,
despite an increased number of exposure hours in recent years.
SRS vs. Industry - OSHA Recordable Incident Rate (TRI)
Apart from safety, quality is the most important factor when building work
packages. A detailed Quality Assurance, Quality Control program has been
implemented, ensuring that all applicable codes, standards, and speciﬁc
client requirements are met or exceeded throughout the progression of
the construction process. All subcontractors and vendors of SRS are held
to the same standard of QA/QC performance.
With ABSA-certiﬁed procedures that address ASME B31.1 Boiler External
Piping, ASME B31.3 Process Piping, and CSA B51 Pressure Piping, SRS is
well equipped to manage all types of industry standard work. SRS is also
CWB-certiﬁed in CSA W47.1 division 3.
The emphasis on quality is reinforced at the ﬁeld-level through programs
that ensure quality is in the mind of the worker, and periodic monitoring
by supervision. At SRS, we aim to build work once and build work right.
“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail” - an adage that is as
true today as it ever has been. The basis for any project is the quantity,
productivity, and time constraints which are inherent in executing work.
These constraints allow the quantity take-off and estimate to be developed
that form the basis for the scope of work. From here, all job planning and
scheduling is completed with Primavera P3/P5. This software is the indus-
try standard for project management and project scheduling. Combined
with our ﬁeld engineering expertise, our planners and schedulers can:
- Create realistic project execution plans
- Develop resource-loaded schedules for each craft/equipment type
- Update plans with realtime progress data collected from the ﬁeld
- Report on workforce efﬁciency by comparing planned vs. actual
- Identify critical path activities before production is impacted
- Develop recovery plans to realign the schedule as necessary
The client is given the most accurate project management information.
Tracking both costs and quantities is necessary to evaluate progress. SRS
uses Digital Time Capture (DTC), a customized software package designed
to track all costs and quantities on a job.
Accurately tracking cost on a daily basis is important for both the client
and ourselves. All daily labor, equipment, and material is entered into DTC
and daily work tickets are automatically generated for approval and billing.
The basis for quantity tracking is the control budget, which is established
from the estimate and used by DTC as the baseline to determine the bid
quantities and manhours to measure progress against. As quantities are
installed in the ﬁeld they are tracked by ﬁeld engineers and input into DTC.
A measure of productivity is then obtained by comparing the actual versus
With the capability of DTC and the experience of our staff, SRS has the
ability to track and report progress accurately on a daily basis.
Controls are necessary to ensure that a project is being executed properly.
Purchasing on all job sites is regulated by an internal and client approval
matrix to ensure that the proper channels are followed when additional
material or equipment is requested for a job.
All data entry in DTC is veriﬁed by the project cost engineer on a regular
basis to ensure billable entries are as per contractual terms. Accounting at
head ofﬁce is controlled with SAP enterprise software and the output from
DTC is reconciled against SAP to ensure accuracy of our billings.
All management personnel are trained in recognizing what controls are
necessary to ensure that job costs and quantities are reported correctly.
