Quality is an important part of engineering, and at Bristol Harbor Group, Inc., our naval architects and marine engineers follow strict document checking procedures. All drawings and calculations that leave Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. are checked by a senior or principal naval architect and marine engineer prior to release. This checking process ensures that all documents have at least “two sets of eyes” on them, and fosters a team approach for almost all of our projects.
Further, regular design review meetings are held to ensure that our naval architects and marine engineers are not working in a vacuum. With a core purpose “To Create”, it is important to make sure that we are constantly innovating and pushing our work product to the limits. That said, our engineers also have much real world experience, enabling us to make sure that our designs are innovative, yet practical.
At Bristol Harbor Group, Inc., we endeavor to over deliver to our clients. This does not mean that we over think issues, but rather that we deliver drawings with more detail than the client might be expecting, and calculation packages with more depth than the client has seen in the past. We do this because we have discovered that this is our preferred work method, i.e., this is what “floats our boat”. We are not happy when drawings leave the shop with less detail than we think necessary. Therefore, we look for clients for whom this too is a priority, and those clients tend to make up our large repeat client base.
