Considerations for modular fabrication and rigging involve comprehensive review of construction sequencing, including:
- Electrical & Instrumentation
- Equipment erection
- Load out Activities/ Shipping
- Location of fabrication yard
- Painting & Insulation
- Pre-Commissioning/ Validation
- Quality surveillance
- Structural steel
- Weight, Dimensional Control & Centre of Gravity (COG)
Fluor retains highly experienced rigging specialists who assist with rigging plans, studies, detailed design of rigging attachments, consultation, technical subcontractor selection and management. Rigging plans and analysis for a project usually result in significant savings through efficiencies, construction equipment savings and avoidance of costly problems and accidents.
Traditionally, rigging design and engineering have been a process of estimating weights and dimensions and reviewing crane/load relationships by using 2D paper cutouts or clear template overlays to plot plans and elevations. Fluor, an industry leader in 3D design, uses a software program we developed to enhance the constructability interface between the engineering and construction disciplines.
Fluor can evaluate your project to see if modular construction is the right approach.
