Waller Heads N e w Firm Based In San Diego To Provide Contract Management

A new San Diego-based company is launching a new approach for the repair and modernization of military and commercial vessels. The firm, Engineering Visions, Inc. (Envisions), is focusing on providing integrated contract management for planning, engineering, and production for the overhaul of ships and subsystems—a concept common in land-based construction but so far not employed widely in the marine engineering field.

"Contract management for any given project is presently spread among several Naval activities with limited overall responsibility," says Robert A. Waller, Envisions president. "We feel our total contract management approach will achieve better integration and on-time delivery at lower cost for all phases of maintenance, repair, alteration, and modernization." Envisions was formed when employees of two divisions of Planning Research Corporation— 23-year-old PRC Marine Services and eightyear- old PRC Guralnick, Inc. (a joint venture with Morris Guralnick, Inc.)—purchased the operations and merged them this past summer.

"As a single company we can operate more efficiently than we could as two separate organizations," says Jack Bertram, director of business development.

Other Envisions senior managers include: Charles E. Warner, director of ship design; Charles R. Barney, director of planning and logistics; John F. Hamma, director of engineering; and Mark P. Tanner, manager of finance and administration.
