Quality Blog Introduction
EPR’s project management, consulting, and restructuring experience is highly varied. 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 reference material with deep technical precision, it's assumed the audience understands the technical basis for the observations. However, our intention is to bring a discussion level perspective of how construction quality impacts an owner, with enough technical content provided for 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 a serious discussion is needed in our industry about project construction quality. Hopefully, this is a positive addition to that dialogue…
