Regulatory Project Recovery

PFES helps electric and gas utility recover its critical regulatory project by overcoming a formidable set of challenges and an imposing deadline to complete the project on time and on budget.

 

Critical regulatory project recovery

Our client, a utility with a service territory across three states, was designing an equipment storage facility that complied with standards established by the Nuclear Energy Institute following the Fukushima disaster. [ 1 NEI 12-06 Diverse and Flexible Coping Strategies (FLEX) Implementation Guide Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Order EA-12-049].

Challenge

External pressures and internal deficiencies

After the client’s engineer of choice failed to meet the design deadline, the utility was faced with overcoming an imposing deadline with unpredictable inclement weather and geotechnical conditions, first of its kind engineering and procurement, and lack of construction quality assurance and personnel.

 

Solution

Provide engineering, procurement and construction management services

PFES was engaged to assume control of the project and deployed its seasoned team of experts. Our team had nine months to revise the design, procure materials, and construct the building and meet the rate recovery deadline. We mobilized a team of industry veterans to design, fabricate, and install the FLEX building in compliance with the NRC Order, NEI Guidelines, and the site’s design-basis for missile protection and seismic response.

Outcome

Successful inspection and industry-leading discoveries.

Despite a formidable set of challenges and an imposing deadline, the PFES team completed the project on time and on budget. Most importantly, the FLEX building successfully passed the NRC inspection.
During the engagement, the PFES engineering team identified multiple opportunities to modify the original design created by the former engineer of choice, relieving the construction schedule and delivering significant cost savings back to the client. Many of these design changes and modifications became industry standards and best practices.

Scope Expansion

While engaged on the project, PFES was asked to include water and utility tie-in, as well as access road creation. Our team accepted the challenge, reworked schedules and refined processes to satisfy the expanded needs.
