SCDOT Construction and Resource Management Highway Program

Fluor was one of two firms partnering with the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) to implement the Construction and Resource Management (CRM) Program.

This statewide program was established to speed the implementation of 200 projects from 27 to 7 years.

Projects included interstate widening and interchange improvements.


Client's Challenge

To implement this massive program, SCDOT divided the projects into western and eastern regions, selecting Fluor to manage projects in the western region.

The program contract enabled Fluor to provide personnel to complete the projects, rather than the state hiring additional workers.


Fluor's Solution

Fluor provided engineering services, right-of-way acquisition, utility coordination, procurement, program and construction management, quality services, and financial management services for the project.

Working closely with SCDOT program managers, Fluor assisted with coordinating design and construction activities and with strategic planning and project financial management.

In support of financial management, Fluor developed a state-of-the-art enterprise system that allowed SCDOT to:

  • Forecast and control cash flows and federal obligations
  • Forecast bond use based on program needs while meeting the bond constraints
  • Report project and program status


Conclusion

The CRM contract included road and bridge widening, as well as new alignment projects. Fluor managed 47 projects with a total value of $870.5 million.

Under Fluor supervision, construction contractors worked more than 1.3 million safe labor hours with zero incidents, earning safety commendations for Fluor from several organizations.
