COADE CADWorx fieldPipe Used on Large Image CES Project for CenterPoint Energy Featured in World Pipelines Article

HOUSTON—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 1, 2009— COADE, Inc. announced today the publication of a World Pipelines magazine article about IMAGE Custom Engineering Solutions, Field Services division (IMAGE Field Services), using CADWorx fieldPipe to successfully complete the “as-built” computer modeling of over 70 gas compression stations owned by CenterPoint Energy Field Services as part of the company’s project to re-document all of its electric distribution facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.

The program combines the precise laser technology of Leica Geosystems for accuracy and, in real-time, ties into the CADWorx intelligent plant design systems to produce deliverables in the field, allowing modeling of the as-built installations to be easily completed onsite with less manpower and with full accuracy. The article was based on interviews with Greg Miller, operations manager for Image Field Services, and Don Nuckels, PE, the president of Image CES. By using CADWorx fieldPipe, the article describes how Image Field Services completed in six months what would have taken years to do using traditional manual methods. “To my knowledge, this is the largest project on which CADWorx fieldPipe has been used here, and it never missed a beat,” Nuckels explains in the article. Information about COADE products is at A reprint of the article is at, or it can be seen in the December edition of World Pipelines magazine.
