The FOCUS process in an eight-step tool that provides the framework to build consensus in project development among all members of the team, particularly with the Client team, and to promote strong relationships. The driving philosophy behind the FOCUS process is first you build a consensus then you build a facility.
Through a series of intensely interactive workshops involving the Client and key members of the project team, Fluor's proprietary FOCUS Process build early consensus across multiple disciplines. In turn, this enables our design and engineering specialists to establish an early-phase basis of design with an uncommon level of certainty in terms of function, cost, and schedule.
The resulting Conceptual Design Report (CDR) is the codifying element for the project execution. This document empowers the Client to effectively budget and allocate capital resources while expediting the Client's projected revenue stream through minimized time-to-market.
