Design Reviews Focus on Client Project Requirements

Our Clients depend on Fluor for accurate and timely design reviews. We conduct design reviews at key project stages to ensure consistent, efficient focus on the Clients' deliverables throughout the design process.

Design reviews for projects include:

Constructability, Maintainability and Operability (CMO) Reviews

CMO Reviews highlight, address and resolve issues early in the design process for an efficient design and construction process, minimizing overall project cost. Reviews focus on:

  • Constructability
    The reviews for constructability highlight any construction approach issues in the design to optimize the project's quality, safety, capital cost and construction schedule. Maintainability and operability input is provided by the Client. Client expectations and requirements are established during the Client Alignment session.
  • Maintainability
    The review for maintainability addresses issues during a project's design phase associated with completing expected maintenance tasks, including factoring reliability and maintenance considerations into the design basis, establishing processes ensuring minimal impacts associated with maintenance and prestart-up maintenance planning.
  • Operability
    This review, similar to maintainability, focuses on minimizing post-startup life-cycle costs of a plant and addresses plant operation, logistics and support issues during a project's design phases.

Other design reviews for projects include:

Value Engineering Reviews

Fluor applies value engineering to projects at all levels of project execution. Value engineering reviews employ proven techniques at multiple design phases, with the primary objective of reducing cost without compromising project quality.

Plant Operations Safety Reviews (HAZOP Reviews)

HAZOP reviews ensure critical safety and operating characteristics are addressed for safe and proper functioning of the completed facility.

Inter-discipline Reviews (Squad Checks)

Internal reviews confirm necessary interfaces occur between the various engineering disciplines assigned to the project.

Model Reviews

Model reviews, conducted with the Client, verify the design accurately reflects the detailed definition of the project scope of work and design input requirements. They are held at approximately 30, 60 and 90 percent of design completion.

Baseline CentricSM Reviews

These reviews ensure engineering and design are completed in accordance with the project baseline and estimate. The reviews are conducted throughout the design process, at approximately 25, 50 and 75 percent of design completion.

Technical / Peer Reviews

Technical / peer reviews may be conducted on critical items, or when the design is based on new technologies or products that have not been previously demonstrated as effective. The reviews are performed by individuals with knowledge of the area under review or by a qualified, independent organization.
