From Energy Services
MPR's Project Services includes owner's engineering services, project management, and construction management services focused on identifying and mitigating our clients' risks in large capital or major maintenance projects. Projects are completed on time and on budget because we combine our technical, commercial, and project management skills from the inception through to completion. MPR also develops damage mitigation strategies for projects that are off track, thereby ensuring that our clients' interests are protected.
Our specific services include the following:
- Conceptual design
- Technology selection
- Specification development
- Contractor selection and commercial contracting support
- Design review
- Construction and field services monitoring
- Project cost estimating
- Schedule development and review
- Commissioning, startup, and testing support
- Project claims and expert witness consulting
We perform focused, intensive reviews of project schedules and cost estimates, recommending and applying earned-value project management methodologies early so that they can be instilled throughout the life of the project to maximize impact.
MPR's niche in this market is unique. We focus on key risk areas, such as critical equipment, systems, external technical and commercial interfaces, and long-term operability. Because we do not repeat the work of our clients' contractors and do not pursue EPC work or major O&M contracts, we can collaborate with contractors on our clients' behalf, while challenging their approach and methods without perceived bias or conflicting commercial interests.
