10 reasons why Rush is the right project partner.
Rush Resources solves the largest problems found in large, complex construction projects. Rush brings project transformation to an industry stuck in the “status quo.”
Rush restores capital performance and success by delivering the best project experiences and business relationships.
1. INDUSTRY PROBLEM: CHRONIC CAPITAL UNDERPERFORMANCE
THE PROBLEMS WE SOLVE
Capital projects, shutdown and turnarounds, and similar projects are plagued by predictable problems. Problems that lead to blown schedules, large cost overruns and higher capital risk.
Statistics that relate specifically to capital and project risks are:
- 78% of owners and construction companies believe that project risks are increasing [KPMG study]
- $33 million, over 17 months, was the global average size and length of construction disputes [Arcadis study]
And, rework is killing project performance leading to additional and unnecessary capital risk:
- 30% of work performed by construction companies is actually rework [MCSER study]
- 9% of total project cost is due to rework—including direct and indirect costs [Navigant study]
Finally, productivity doesn’t seem to be getting better, further adding to capital risk, globally, to the tune of $1.62 trillion annually (Dodge study).
Statistics bear out that the probability of a successful construction project (one that is on-time, on-budget and meeting all required objectives) is at an all time low. Therefore, the capital you invest in projects has a high probability of under performance.
It’s time to transform the way projects are started and completed so you restore and increase your capital performance—getting the most out of your capital investments.
We Lower These Stats:
- Mega project delay or over budget (%) 98% 98%
- Cost overrun for all construction projects (%) 85% 85%
- Owners say that they need more collaboration (%) 82% 82%
- Poor contractor performance is #1 problem (%) 69% 69%
- Underperforming projects, last 12 months (%) 50% 50%
- Average cost overrun (% of total project dollars) 28% 28%
- Projects completed within 10% of original budget (%) 25% 25%

2. INDUSTRY NEED: PROJECT TRANSFORMATION
WHAT WE BRING TO EVERY PROJECT
It’s been proven over the past 70 years that the status quo isn’t good enough. By this, that if the same approaches, processes, relationships and methodologies are continue things will only get worse.
Capital, shutdown and turnaround projects for energy, oil and gas, manufacturing and distribution companies must be transformed. Otherwise future projects will continue to achieve the statistics mentioned above.
Project transformation is required if businesses are to decrease capital risk. Industry statistics indicate the largest areas of transformation that deliver the greatest benefit are:
- Leadership: broad, diverse and high-performance leaders that can lead people, budgets, contractors, material, equipment and project goals to a common set of performance-driven and predictable results
- Management: deeply skilled and experienced project management that knows where the challenges are, ahead of the problem
- Culture: creating a culture of high-performance, teamwork and shared accountability for success
- Skilled Resources: the right experience and skill for the activity or task that predictably meets expectations, sufficient to keep budgets and schedules
- Transparency: open, collaborative and high-trust relationships, communication and problem solving
- Improved contractor performance: better schedule, communication and planning with external contractors
- Better craft productivity: putting the right skill, in the right place, at the right time, every time
- Reducing rework: getting the project, activity or task done right the first time, every time
While, on the surface, these high-impact transformation areas may seem obvious, solving them has proven elusive.
Don’t be the next poor statistic. Do something different. Choose to transform your project and get the most out of your capital investment.

8. COMPREHENSIVE SAFETY
Decades of field project experience has taught us that safety goes beyond traditional HSE. Way beyond.
Safety encompasses people, places, assets, project phases, individual tasks and capital. By this, safety must take into account:
- Safe people: proper skills, certifications, licenses, training and experience, supported by proper process, accountability and reporting
- Safe places: offices, facilities and work sites where the work gets done by having the right oversight, governance, monitoring and process controls that keep workplaces productive and high-performing to enable greater safety for people
- Safe assets: keeping equipment and tools available, capable, certified, licensed and safe when on the worksite or being used by contractors or your personnel
- Safe project phases: ensuring that poor safety performance or compromise in equipment, machinery or task completion doesn’t impact the next project phase
- Safe activities and tasks: having the proper readiness, monitoring, incident response and notification that keeps specific activities performing at their best, all the time
- Safe capital: capital safety is making sure that the money you’ve allocated and spent returns the greatest value and benefit within the entire project, phase or specific activity; keeping an eye on attitudes, behaviors, communication and actions that lead to “unsafe spending”
Rush Resources brings a comprehensive, holistic view to project safety that improves your safety culture and environment leading to better project experiences and more successful outcomes.
