Expertise
Engineering and construction

Plan it, design it, deliver it

Project costs and risks need to be controlled through disciplined engineering and construction management. We stay focused on your priorities to deliver innovative and cost-effective methods to plan, engineer, design and construct assets - adding value and assurance every step of the way.

Combining style and substance

Customers rely on Wood to deliver improved water and wastewater treatment systems, resilient transportation solutions, complex pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and effective remediation projects.

Few firms effectively transition projects from the concept and consulting phase to detailed engineering and construction because they lack engineering rigour and technical breadth, and they fail to integrate the required engineering and construction disciplines on your project.

At Wood, we integrate our in-house civil, environmental, process, mechanical, electrical and structural engineering expertise to execute both small and large-scale projects, on schedule and within budget. Our facility and infrastructure engineering design capabilities are fully supported by expertise in geotechnical, environmental, materials, water resources engineering and a wide range of environmental sciences.

We take the time to understand where a simple design may be the best solution to the project because it accelerates the design phase and allows innovative solutions. Depending on the execution strategy and customer-specific requirements, preliminary engineering can be followed by a detailed design phase, a progressive design and construction approach, a design-build approach, or an alternate project delivery strategy. As a flexible, full-service provider, we customise our approach to meet your project delivery preferences.

One size fits none

We assemble multidisciplinary project teams to meet the size, complexity and geographic needs of your project. We apply ingenuity as a standard to ensure your project’s success from initial concept through final design, construction, commissioning, and operations and maintenance (O&M) of the asset.

Many customers rely on our skills for independent construction oversight and inspection or to take a more substantive role in overall construction management and quality assurance. For some projects, our ability to deliver a full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solution provides the best value. For each of these roles, our project control discipline and experienced construction management teams work closely with our customers. At a time when so many projects are experiencing dramatic cost and schedule over-runs, our project managers are trained and certified to successfully deliver the basics:  meet the customer’s scope, safety, quality, schedule and budget targets.

Absolute assurance

A successful construction project depends on safe work performance, disciplined construction planning, thorough project control during execution, adherence to sound construction practices and quality control in the construction process. Whether performing construction management as the owner’s agent, providing programme management expertise, or design/build services, we perform each job with diligence and dedication. Quality control and quality assurance standards during construction help to ensure the facility, road or treatment system is constructed to plan and functions as designed. If the scope involves commissioning, start-up and operations, we bring forward the same attention to quality.
