Fluor Corporation has announced that Fiatech has named Fluor a Celebration of Engineering and Technology Innovation (CETI) Award winner for the company’s innovative integrated scaffolding solution on the North West Redwater Partnership Sturgeon Refinery Project in Alberta, Canada. Fluor received the award in the scenario-based project planning category.
Fluor’s turnkey solution incorporates scaffolding into a project’s detailed design and encompasses 3D design, logistics and field execution expertise. With a focus on efficient assembly sequencing, this approach optimises scaffolding quantities and onsite productivity, thereby reducing costs. Additional benefits include schedule predictability and reduced site hours and congestion. The programme is a partnership between Fluor and AMECO, Fluor’s equipment unit, as well as scaffolding manufacturer PERI.
“Fluor is honoured to be recognised by the capital projects community for our innovative execution methods that reduce costs and improve schedule certainty for our clients,” said Jack Penley, Fluor’s President of Construction and Fabrication. “Fluor’s integrated scaffolding solution drives a step change in efficient scaffolding execution compared to traditional approaches. It is just one example of how our integrated solutions approach delivers project execution advantages.”
