Since Caprock's founding in 2015, the energy sector in western Canada has been enduring a downturn. In return, Caprock has identified one value add to our clients - being Flexible. Flexible to change in schedules, resources, scope, material and processes. At Caprock, we do whatever it takes to achieve success in the new economical environment, both for our clients and their projects.
Our team has the experience to Challenging Industry Norms by pursuing options that are more efficient, cost effective, and by continuously striving for better solutions. By challenging industry norms, we will make every action deliberate and every deliverable highly effective, with the focus on reducing labour, materials and their associated costs.
Good engineering and design should be replicated, not recreated every time. Executing projects is at the centre of Caprock’s competence. We will work with our clients to reuse engineering and design to construct repeatable projects. We understand the value in our ability to execute templated projects with Zero Engineering Design.
Our Canadian environment can be harsh and our site conditions are remote. We continue to be Innovative to minimize materials and labour required at site and allocate as much work in a controlled environment as possible through design, execution and modularization.
