LSI has always been and continues to be a relationship based company, who believes it is our role to provide maximum value to our clients.
We now offer Design-Build or EPC project delivery methodology, on a project by project basis to some of our most trusted clients.
The Engineer-Procure-Construct (EPC) model helps align team members for optimal project performance.
This often results in a collaborative, value-based construction process and is typically used for process- or equipment-driven projects. The EPC model reduces project risks for the owner, delivers predictable results, and maximizes the effectiveness of capital planning.
EPC project delivery has emerged as a preferred choice for many industries and is starting to gain favor in the manufacturing industry.
Our process starts with a pre-construction effort that involves some preliminary planning and engineering to define the scope, schedule, and costs of the project.
This pre-construction effort can be completed for approximately 1 to 3 percent of the TIC. Validation is generally managed directly by the client or through a separate validation firm to ensure this critical activity is successfully delivered.
LSI works with owners to develop a validation plan at the onset of the project and incorporates the plan into the project estimate, schedule, and quality control plan. LSI also develops project scope and estimates. The project schedule and project budget are known before the project enters detail design or construction phases.
We assume complete responsibility for the project from start to finish.
EPC project delivery offers the tightest integration of activities during the construction process through our structured and disciplined approach. In addition, communication among the design, procurement, and construction teams begins immediately.
This project delivery model is not for every client or every project but, utilized properly, it has proven to be a very effective means of project delivery for some clients.
