We deliver integrated projects through a single client focal point to reduce the number of interfaces for clients. This helps to ensure an orderly turnover, commissioning and start-up while minimizing the impact to ongoing operations.

Our UpFRONT® operational readiness tool promotes early implementation of operations and maintenance best practices during EPC project phases, which helps to reduce the total cost of ownership and maximizes project life-cycle value. Owners may use all of the modules or only a few, depending on the location, size, and complexity of their facility.
