Design and Construction of a Guar Processing Facility

Abstract:

This paper encompassed the preparation of most of the necessary front-end engineering design (FEED) elements for a design-build construction management (CM) contract for a 60 metric ton per day (48-million pounds per year) guar processing facility by Kirkuk Global LLC, an international project management consulting firm. The construction management contract will be performed as either a traditional owner’s representative for the project sponsor, or as an at-risk CM under a guaranteed maximum price (GMP). Five major tasks have been identified as part of this project design effort: prepare a plant conceptual site plan and equipment layout design; prepare an organizational chart, plant payroll and construction budget; prepare a baseline project construction schedule; develop a quality assurance and a quality control manual; and prepare overall project pro forma financial statements.
