The refining industry is challenged by ever-changing markets, demand fluctuations, restrictive regulations and fuel standards. You are focused on solutions that create opportunities — opportunities to make money, reduce project costs, achieve schedule advantages. 

Our project teams are client-focused, bringing our employee-ownership perspective to your projects, looking for process engineering and construction solutions that emphasize your priorities: uncompromising safety, cost-consciousness decision-making, predictable project execution.

Safety First in Refining Facilities

It’s our culture. Every project begins with a safety plan. We demand uncompromising the safety leadership for ourselves that you expect. That’s why we can achieve such safety milestones as performing more than 4 million work hours for a refinery client without a recordable incident. It’s the reason our clients come back again and again.

Process Design and EPC Solutions

Our high-performance refining teams don’t provide textbook solutions. They solve problems with creative ideas that save you money. Open-book, guaranteed maximum-price contracts, with cost underruns returned to you, are a part of our typical project execution.

Our disciplined front-end loading work is focused on your project’s success. Our multisubcontractor construction approach provides high productivity — leading to reduced labor costs and on-schedule completion. Our experienced estimators, engineers and construction managers are 100 percent committed to your success. They provide engineer-procure-construct (EPC) services that deliver predictable results.
