We offer our clients practical construction expertise for offshore projects, delivered by people with a pragmatic and realistic approach to problem solving and value creation.
We use a proven delivery model for planning the execution of an offshore construction project. We know that extensive onshore scoping and engineering prior to committing resources to offshore works results in better quality results, on time delivery and safe and effective offshore campaign. We proactively focus on the schedule, risks and quality of delivery, enable the project team to manage the works efficiently and effectively.
We ensure technical and commercial aims are fully documented and remain in focus throughout the tender, negotiation and post contract award. We can prepare scopes of work, assess if suitable levels of technical detail are provided in the documents, build a robust technical evaluation process and advise on the likely market approach from suppliers. Our support will add value and ensure that commercial negotiations do not unknowingly add risk to the quality of the services.
We understand the transport and installation processes for offshore structures, and can provide a detailed review of procedures. We can provide internal assurance of the quality of the processes, review the detailed design calculations, or assess overall procedural completeness and the robustness of the schedule. We have experience of engineering for all major offshore construction works, including: load out, seagoing transportation, pile installation and offshore welding processes.
We have extensive experience of managing the interface to Marine Warranty Surveyor and working with insurance companies, loss adjusters and the insured parties. Using our experience of work within MWS organisations, we can assist with procuring MWS services from the market, and ensuring the Client and Insurer objectives are fulfilled appropriately without delay to project progress.
Working client side, or as part of the EPC Contractor, we can lead or support the installation works. Typically we provide the service throughout the project process, leading planning, procurement, engineering and execution, including management of offshore works and supervision.
Our team have all worked offshore, working in supervisory role for Clients, or delivering the work directly. We know the importance of monitoring and recording the quality of the works and providing a continuous audit of safety and progress, and combine this with successfully managing the day to day interfaces with the Contractors, vessel crews and other marine operations.
