Fluor Provides Global Construction Services to Support Clients' Capital Projects.
Fluor experts bring a wealth of experience to field construction execution, including constructability, craft certification, industrial relations, modularization, rigging and welding services. Our construction teams provide input into the construction scope, optimizing construction activities and offering cost saving suggestions during all project phases. We are often called to the field to facilitate problem resolution.
Fluor’s constructability program integrates comprehensive construction competence into each phase of a project, from early project planning, through engineering and procurement, to construction and start-up. When implemented at the front end of a project, this expertise enhances performance throughout all project execution phases. Experienced planning and execution supports the efficient use of minimum/just-in-time inventory and can accelerate the project schedule.
Fluor’s proficiency in creating “virtual facilities” using interactive, 3D modeling tools provides Clients with a real-time, walk-through simulation that facilitates the ability to jointly review and address potential issues of constructability, operability and maintenance at the early stages of the project.
Fluor invests in developing highly integrated construction automation tools to enhance work planning and efficiency in the field. From real-time visualization software and weld tracking tools, to work packaging programs and Fluor Site ConnectSM, enabling automation of work flows associated with data or information via mobile devices to support construction work processes in the field.
Craft Certification, Licenses and Permits
Craft Certification - Fluor’s Craft Certification program provides a means of identifying qualified journey-level craft workers, foremen and general foremen. The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) assessments are used to evaluate the knowledge of an individual in a specific craft.
NCCER’s performance verification and test instruments are designed as tools to assess the skill level of a journey-level worker. Individuals who successfully complete the NCCER written certification assessment and the performance verification will receive the Certified Plus certification through the National Craft Assessment and Certification Program (NCACP).
Licenses and Permits – Fluor’s provides the necessary licenses to execute projects in diverse locations. Each project and location may have different permitting requirements and Fluor can assist Clients to obtain necessary permits in the specific country in which the project is delivered.
Fluor’s Industrial Relations team evaluates and mitigates domestic and international labor or employment issues to promote and maintain labor harmony. Through regional analysis, the group determines various labor posture approaches and makes sure working conditions comply with applicable laws and regulations, including those applying to craft compensation, employee relations, collective bargaining agreements and community relations.
For more than 40 years, Fluor has been an industry leader in the use of modular construction. Modular execution begins during a project’s conceptual design phase as a coordinated effort that encompasses all EPC project functions. Fluor provides modular construction and construction management services from design, through module assembly and transportation, to erection and final turnover. Following the conceptual design and detailed design phases, Fluor’s modular teams manage and coordinate the various suppliers, subcontractors and assembly yards needed to construct and test the modules. Fluor arranges for loading, transport and unloading of the assembled modules including barge, ship, rail or over-the-road transport.
Fluor retains highly experienced rigging specialists who assist projects with rigging plans, studies, detailed design of rigging attachments, consultation, technical subcontract selection and management. Rigging plans and analysis for a project usually result in significant savings through efficiencies, construction equipment savings and avoidance of costly problems and accidents.
Welding Certification and Services
All welders performing ASME/NBIC code work are required to be qualified and certified in accordance with the original code of construction and ASME Section IX. Welder qualification test records are available at the site of the welding. The project quality representative assures only qualified welders perform code work. The quality representative also assures all welders performing code work have reviewed the applicable weld procedure specifications (WPSs).
The test WPS used for the qualification of welders is selected based on the anticipated WPSs to be used in production, including welding processes, joint thicknesses and diameters to be welded. To requalify, due to expired Fluor certification(s), testing may be reduced, provided a record of the previous qualification is available.
Fluor Constructors International, Inc. is the union craft arm of Fluor Corporation, providing construction management and direct-hire construction expertise.
