Burns & McDonnell, a fully integrated engineering, architecture, construction, environmental and consulting firm with global headquarters in Kansas City, Mo., and more than 40 regional offices in North America and across the globe, has selected Intergraph® SmartPlant® Cloud to assist in supporting much of its power, process and water engineering systems infrastructure.

SmartPlant Cloud is Intergraph’s engineering ecosystem offering SmartPlant applications and third-party applications supported 24/7/365 by technical and business operations service. SmartPlant Cloud provides a single, unified and secure computer environment that can contain multiple projects and user communities.

Intergraph will host via SmartPlant Cloud, Burns & McDonnell’s SmartPlant tools, making them accessible from any of its global locations. Solutions include Intergraph Smart™ 3D, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Electrical, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant Review, SmartPlant Reference Data, SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant CloudWorx™ for Smart 3D, SmartPlant CloudWorx for SmartPlant Review, CAESAR II®, PV Elite® and SmartPlant Construction.

SmartPlant Cloud supports the customer’s objectives to optimise CAPEX/OPEX costs and shorten project schedules by enabling all parties involved – in either the design of a project or the operations and maintenance of a facility – to share a consistent, common view of all documents and data available.

Burns & McDonnell sought a cloud environment that provides closer collaboration for projects around the world, including an expansion of its office in India. It expects to see increased efficiency via collaboration among dispersed teams and savings from less travel and costs associated with managing its infrastructure internally, allowing the company to remain focused on its core business activities.

Burns & McDonnell Senior Vice President & Chief Technical Officer Gregory Gould says, “Our company first placed SmartPlant Reference Data in the cloud in July 2015, and that successful implementation gave us the confidence to transition most of our Intergraph tool set to SmartPlant Cloud. Burns & McDonnell values Intergraph as a partner and looks forward to SmartPlant Cloud making us more efficient and flexible while devoting our IT resources to higher-value activities.”

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, says, “A desire for improved global collaboration and efficiency in this current economic environment drove Burns & McDonnell to entrust Intergraph and its SmartPlant Cloud Service to manage a key part of its engineering systems infrastructure. The company wishes to maximise its financial investments and human capital within its core business, which is producing world-class power and process plants.”
