During the bid phase Fluor provided the PPP/DBFM project experience which was needed to win the project. The Project was awarded with use of MEAT criteria (most economically advantageous tender). Therefore the Client did not only award the project based on pricing, but also on the quality of the bid. IXAS Zuid-Oost was rated best on both price and MEAT criteria.
IXAS has provided a solution with a short construction phase with minimal environmental nuisance, while maintaining optimal traffic flow.
Key roles in the SPC and the EPCM-Co are staffed by Fluor (e.g. the EPCM project director, the EPCM Business manager, the SPC contract manager and the SPC assurance manager). Much effort is put in maintaining good relations with the Client, stakeholders and local residents.
The IXAS management system is based on the ISO15288 and involves all primary and business processes needed to successfully manage a project of this magnitude (e.g. model based systems engineering, quality management, interface management, lifecycle asset management, stakeholder management, etc.). IXAS has obtained certificates for the ISO9001, VCA**, BTR, SPIC and its organizational maturity levels are externally audited with use of the ISO15504 standard. Fluor was also responsible for building the project's work roads, logistics center, and site offices.
