Quality Blog Introduction
EPR’s project management, restructuring, and consulting experience is highly varied resulting in a unique industry perspective. Poorly managed construction may have many problems such as safety, schedule, escalated cost, etc... However, plant quality is the most significant determinant of the forward asset (plant) value.
This blog is not presented as deep technical reference but a discussion-level view. It is assumed the more technical reader will understand the basis for these observations. However, our intention is to bring a real-world perspective of how construction quality impacts an owner, with enough technical content to provide 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).
All the problems identified in this Blog could have easily been avoided with skilled proactive oversight and usually minimal or no incremental cost. If your project is near COD or early in construction and exhibiting some of these concerns or entering commissioning with a need to avoid enduring latent commissioning defects, EPR can help.
