GAIN A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF SCHEDULING, COSTS AND QUALITY BEFORE BREAKING GROUND
Last Energy streamlines the pre-construction process by offering an array of planning services. We work in collaboration with project teams to provide insight on construction methods and materials to help stakeholders make well-informed decisions around scheduling, cost and quality.
Our team of experts will start with a detailed plan and specification review and provide engineering recommendations. We'll analyze pre-construction schedules and provide guidance on logistics and sequencing to minimize delays and ensure key deadlines are met. Our team will also set up holistic quality control and quality assurance programs to ensure power plants are built to specification.
SERVICES / VENDOR MANAGEMENT
KEEP BUDGETS ON TARGET
Last Energy helps stakeholders implement a comprehensive cost management structure for new nuclear projects in order to keep budgets on target and reduce the likelihood of overruns. During the construction process, all expenses are recorded and monitored to make sure they stay in line with the cost management plan.
Our team carefully oversees project and performance status and evaluates construction milestones. We then manage payment schedules that incentivize contractors to maintain quality while still meeting deadlines. If rework or changes arise, our team will analyze the cost to complete new activities as well as investigate potential defective work claims.
ENSURE KEY MILESTONES ARE CONSISTENTLY MET
Last Energy helps remove complexity from the construction process by holding contractors accountable. Our team will provide oversight throughout the development process, monitoring construction progress along with equipment and material compliance to specifications. If problems arise, our team is there to check original contract documents, review events and provide recommendations so that all specifications are adhered to.
We also closely manage schedules to ensure key milestones are met with consistency. We'll document progress reports for stakeholders as well as establish a punch list of incomplete and/or deficient items to quickly identify potential delays and work on solutions to remediate issues.
IDENTIFY ENGINEERING ROADBLOCKS
BEFORE THEY HAPPEN
Last Energy provides projects with a qualified Owner's Engineer that will provide oversight on the construction process and verify that development is being completed as planned. As an onsite contact, they'll answer any structural or engineering-related questions as problems arise as well as ensure that components are being built to specifications.
Our engineers start by reviewing the project budget and scope along with assessing the feasibility and site selection studies. Engineers will then prepare early project schedules and design criteria allowing them to oversee the construction process and identify any emerging trends that could result in delays or budget overages.
ENSURE CONTRACTORS ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH LOCAL AND NATIONAL LABOR LAWS
Last Energy provides robust document control and other administrative methods to take the complexity out of contract compliance. We leverage our extensive knowledge of international contract laws and local employment laws to provide guidance on the documentation and files necessary to maintain compliance and prepare for an audit.
Our experts oversee the process and help project teams to collect, organize and prepare the documentation necessary to ensure all contractors are following all Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity laws along with WH laws to assure that local works are being paid a fair wage.
