Building Complex Projects Globally
Fluor’s experience in construction spans more than 100 years. We have global construction resources ready for deployment anywhere in the world. Fluor teams have built mines in South America, offshore facilities in the Philippines, refineries in South Africa, petrochemical plants in Europe and the United States and oil sands projects in Canada. Regardless of industry, location or complexity, Fluor is ready to build your projects.
Fluor uses advanced construction methodologies on its projects and has extensive knowledge of country requirements and culturally diverse workforces.
As the construction manager on a project, Fluor secures labor through carefully selected subcontractors with a proven history of safety performance, execution excellence and commercial success.
Our experts in field construction focus on constructability, performance engineering, rigging, welding, software systems and modularization.
Craft Staffing and Training
Fluor maintains a database of craft personnel with both domestic and international project experience. Fluor assigns craft personnel to construction projects based on qualifications and availability.
The company supports the needs of construction projects for entry-level and upgrade craft training; welder training; craft certification; and supervisory training. Fluor uses training materials developed specifically for the construction industry.
Onsite craft training focuses on two major areas: assisting new workers in developing their skills to progress from entry-level helpers to journey-level status; and providing resources for skill and knowledge development/upgrade to journey-level workers.
Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Programs
Fluor’s construction organization has a deep commitment to the health and safety of employees in the field and to safeguard the environment. Fluor’s construction expertise is evident in its exemplary safety record. Learn more about HSE at Fluor.
Open and Union Labor Postures
Fluor is one of a few EPC contractors with the ability to successfully execute domestic and international projects under multiple labor postures including open shop/direct hire, union under either a direct hire or construction management basis or construction management/merit shop. Fluor has a 50-plus year history of performing work in each labor posture approach.
Fluor has a quality program that has been ISO 9001 certified. The program applies to both self-perform and project management construction work. Our Quality Control Manual is used at all jobsites and details the quality activities of Fluor personnel for both self-perform and contract management projects. A quality manager is assigned to each project and is responsible for the implementation and coordination of the quality program.
Self-perform is Fluor’s baseline construction execution platform, engaging local resources directly employed by Fluor. When self-performing construction, Fluor manages resources on the company’s payroll. This approach enables maximum control of critical-path and fast-track construction while also providing cost and performance benefits.
Sustainability and Construction
We work closely with Clients to develop a systematic approach to sustainability on your projects. Fluor's sustainability mission envisions meeting the needs of Fluor's Clients while conducting business in a socially, economically and environmentally responsible manner.
