In today’s economy, cost-effective maritime construction has never been more important. With the use of sophisticated design software shipbuilders have learned to maximize the maritime construction process of large vessels and provide the customer with quality service. One of these companies is Leevac Industries.
 

Leevac provides a fully staffed engineering department that offers comprehensive stem to stern design – utilizing the most advanced engineering software – for all manner of vessels and barges.
 

Their vessel engineers possess the experience and technical expertise to design vessels to their customers' exact specifications – as well as providing assistance with concept development. The fact is that their customers can simply provide their ideas on paper and Leevac’s maritime construction engineers will produce the project from beginning to end.
 

Their experienced and talented team of engineers includes pipe designers, structural steel designers, electrical engineers and HVAC specialists, as well as a naval architect on staff. They offer turnkey engineering and design services, which includes marine engineers who provide project engineering and management from start to finish. They can also provide anything from a total turnkey "design and build" project, to the design of specific singular components that a customer may require. In addition, their maritime construction engineers maintain continual communication with owners and operators to ensure they know precisely what is expected and keep each project on time and to exact specifications. Their engineers also maintain frequent communications with Louisiana shipyard production and repair facilities to ensure the quality of work and adherence to specifications and regulations.
 

Their engineering department also has a great deal of experience in taking a customer's vessel designs and making them construction friendly and cost effective. They also place great emphasis on meeting or exceeding all regulatory and safety classifications and requirements. Their vessels are engineered to meet the requirements and guidelines of organizations including the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), United States Coast Guard (USCG), International Maritime Organization (IMO), Bureau Veritas (BV), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), firefighting (FIFI) organizations and the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).
 

In addition, Leevac is involved in the Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA) and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) for the betterment of their company, their industry and service to their customers.
 

At Leevac, they are dedicated to utilizing the latest and greatest engineering software. Their engineers provide in-house lofting utilizing ShipConstructor and Rhinoceros (Rhino) software – two of the most advanced lofting applications in the maritime industry. In addition, their engineers provide everything from 2D drawings in CAD for submitting to regulatory bodies, to comprehensive 3D final designs.
 

Leevac has maintained its position as one of the most productive and profitable maritime construction shipyards of its size in the United States due to their ability to deliver quality work on time and on budget. Leevac successfully survived the decline of the oilfield service industry in the 1980's by diversifying their capabilities into other industries – and are well positioned to provide strong operating results well into the 21st century.
