The construction phase is often seen as the focus of projects, but in fact it is just one important stage in the journey to a successfully operating wind farm or renewable technology project.
It is key that the construction phase is managed to ensure the safe, timely and most cost effective delivery of a working asset into handover to the operations phase.
To achieve this, Wood Group’s implementation team can carry out many of the roles below, working with all the stakeholders to predict, prevent and, where necessary, resolve challenges that arise.
If work is planned, monitored and managed effectively, the lower the chance of delays, unexpected costs and downtime during operations.
Utilising the planning and documentation developed in the pre-construction phase our implementation team will carry out:
- Reporting to relevant parties (client, statutory bodies, lenders etc.)
- Continued risk analysis and management
- Interface and stakeholder management
- Contract administration and enforcement of contract compliance
- Continued design review – all contracts and disciplines
