Dialog Between Engineers: Designers, Contractors, Manufacturers

Serial Information: Civil Engineering—ASCE, 1975, Vol. 45, Issue 12, Pg. 65-66

Document Type: Feature article


A case history showing the untypical situation where engineers from all segments of the construction industry worked together to design and build a power plant. Site conditions were such that large components had to be fabricated on-location. They could not be shipped in. That meant specialized equipment. The owner, prime contractor, and equipment manufacturer worked together for almost three years in designing the project. Turnkey outfits are not the only ones who can use the cooperative approach. Temporary joint ventures combining design firms with construction firms would solve many of the owners problems as well as the construction industries.
