Fluor applies value engineering to projects at all levels of project execution. Value engineering reviews employ proven techniques at multiple design phases, with the primary objective of reducing cost without compromising project quality.
Model reviews, conducted with the client, verify the design accurately reflects the detailed definition of the project scope of work and design input requirements. They are held at approximately 30, 60 and 90 percent of design completion.
These reviews ensure engineering and design are completed in accordance with the project baseline and estimate. The reviews are conducted throughout the design process, at approximately 25, 50 and 75 percent of design completion.
Plant Operations Safety Reviews (HAZOP Reviews)
HAZOP reviews ensure critical safety and operating characteristics are addressed for safe and proper functioning of the completed facility.
Inter-discipline Reviews (Squad Checks)
Internal reviews confirm necessary interfaces occur between the various engineering disciplines assigned to the project.
Technical / Peer Reviews
Technical / peer reviews may be conducted on critical items, or when the design is based on new technologies or products that have not been previously demonstrated as effective. The reviews are performed by individuals with knowledge of the area under review or by a qualified, independent organization.
