Fluor provided engineering, procurement and construction services for the new facilities and utilized a direct-hire craft staffing strategy for construction. Fluor executed the expansion by leveraging established processes in staff and craft recruiting strategies while staying ahead of craft availability challenges as the U.S. Gulf Coast region expands. As part of an integrated approach, a Fluor subsidiary provided construction equipment and tools.
In addition to this strategy, Fluor's office in the Philippines also provided engineering support for the project and trained personnel to execute the design of the project around the clock. Nearly 4,000 home office, construction management and craft personnel were involved on the project at its peak. The project was awarded the 2017 Hugh K. Coble Award for excellence in project execution.
