EPC INTERFACE MANAGEMENT
Interface management has emerged as an effective strategy to reduce interface-related issues and risks by facilitating communication and coordination among diverse parties, particularly for capital-intensive, large and complex projects.
Interface management is no longer an internal project delivery issue only. Interface management has become the combination of internal interfaces, external interfaces and the intersection of the two—to ensure predictable project success.
Rush Resources EPC Interface Management services monitors budgets and schedules, ensuring success by:
- Making sure communication across stake holders is accurate, open, transparent and trustworthy
- Identifying risks that may arise and making recommendation on mitigating risk back to an acceptable level
- Ensuring EPC partners provide the right resources at the right time, and in the right place, to perform to requirement and contract
- Minimizing rework, schedule slippage and cost overruns while growing overall project quality
- Mitigating interface-related risk by recording and tracking interfaces, dependencies, lines of communication, assignment of responsibility and expectations while monitoring progress and achievement of shared goals and objectives
- Increasing overall project performance by smoothing working, schedule and timeline relationships between internal and external parties
The result to our clients can be:
- Dispute avoidance based on scope, schedule and timeline
- Better rigor applied to contracts through full visibility of interface points, and award evaluations that find and minimize risk
- Higher contract incentive achievement for the owners or owner’s representative
- Superior governance, credibility and performance that controls project cost and risk
Key to risk mitigation, cost control and project success is ensuring that what you’re getting is what you thought you were getting. QA/QC is the combination of quality assurance, processes used to monitor, testing plans and quality control and the measurement of outcomes to requirements.
Rush Resources QA/QC Inspection services are centered around quality control and safety while reducing the cost of personnel, equipment and rework often associated with large, complex and capital-intensive construction projects.
Rush Resources is uniquely qualified to address your QA/QC inspection needs due to our detailed understanding and leadership of large projects and our deeply experienced and field-proven experts that have “been there and done that” numerous times. We look beyond the obvious to uncover hidden risks associated with poor construction, equipment, process and performance.
Rush Resources QA/QC Inspection Services keep your project safe, performing and meeting requirements through:
- On-site presence and inspections to ensure compliance and alignment with project specifications
- Confirming operational procedures, assisting with quality and safety work
- Coordinating and overseeing craft and coordinating inspection requirements
- Keeping ahead of safety, permits and worksite-related details
- Verifying industry standards, code requirements and company QA/QC requirements
- Identifying non-conforming work to reduce rework, keep schedules moving and lower costly overruns
- Ensuring fabrication and equipment meets required quality and performance standards
- Providing oversight in the Design, Construction and Pre-Commissioning phases to make sure you’re getting what you’re paying for
It is risky to rely on EPC firms to self-perform QA/QC as they have an incentive to cut corners or not tell it like it is. Rush Resources is a “cold eye review” for your quality assurance and quality control that connects contractor and equipment performance to requirements every time.
Tactical excellence that delivers the best project experiences and risk mitigation.
