Quality Blog Introduction
EPR’s project management, consulting, and restructuring experience is highly varied resulting in a unique view of the industry. A project managed poorly during construction may have many problems, like safety, schedule, over-runs, etc... However, plant quality is the most significant determinant of the forward value of the asset (plant).
This blog is not presented as deep technical reference but a strategy-level view. It's assumed the more techincal members of our audience understand the basis for these observations. However, our intention is to bring a discussion level perspective of how construction quality impacts an owner, with enough technical content provided context. If the reader wants to know more about a technical subject (i.e. PWHT of P91) please refer to the reference codes, standards, and specifications for your project (i.e. ASME).
EPR believes all the problems identified could have easily been solved with proactive oversight. If your project has finished and exhibits some of these concerns, or you are early in construction and desire to avoid these concerning problems, and the more dibilatating latent issues, please call EPR.
