Ongoing Capital Project Management Alliance

Objective: Hargrove provides front-end planning, engineering, procurement, construction management, controls and automation, commissioning and startup, and technical services for a major refinery since 2008.

Our Alliance Team meets monthly to maintain alignment of Program execution priorities and review lessons learned from recently completed projects seeking to find areas of efficiency improvement of the integrated Team. Monthly, we publish “Key Performance Indicators” for the ongoing program of projects including estimate performance, engineering as a percent of TIC, schedule performance, rework performance, and procurement performance.
