Main contents of EPC project
1. Planning and design
All work related to project design and planning, including solution design, equipment selection, construction drawing, comprehensive layout drawing, construction and procurement planning.
1) Solution design mainly studies engineering solution and determines technical principle, including the preparation of process flow diagram, general layout drawing, process design and system technical regulations. Specifically, project feasibility analysis, field survey, equipment room layout, preparation of process flow chart, process design, equipment layout design,equipment parameter design, auxiliary configuration.
2) Detailed design is mainly the design of the construction drawing and comprehensive layout drawing, equipment technical regulations and construction technical regulations. Engineering design issues involved in equipment ordering, engineering subcontracting and construction acceptance, as well as design modification during construction.
3) Construction and procurement planning mainly includes determining the construction plan, estimating the project cost, preparing the schedule plan and procurement plan, establishing the construction management organization system and obtaining the construction permit.
Procurement includes equipment procurement, design subcontracting and construction subcontracting.
In addition to the overall project progress, quality assurance and safety control, establish and maintain the entire project service system (such as temporary electricity, water, site management, environmental protection measures, security, etc.).
To sum up, the essence of EPC is to give full play to the advantages of integrated management, transform the idea of “appreciate technology and neglect management” rather than the construction technology advantage. The effective implementation of EPC requires that the general contractor shall have strong financing capacity and financial strength, deep design capability, strong procurement network, and resource support and effective monitoring from professional subcontractors with excellent construction techniques. The general contractor takes the overall interests of the project as the starting point, and through the integrated management of design, procurement and construction, the optimal allocation of shared resources, and the control of various risks to add value to the project, thereby obtaining more lucrative profits. In the actual operation process, CUC has strictly followed the EPC mode and achieved remarkable effect.
The implementation of specialized and standardized of constructing management is an international practice, but also the requirement of strengthening investment management, improving investment returns, developing the industrial division and improving international competitiveness as the rapid development of Chinese socialist market economy.
As being a large-scale comprehensive designing institute, CUC studied the rules of market development seriously, explored the road of sustainable development actively; expended the business of general contracting, project management, units of equipments and construction supervision bravely. We have awarded the Grade A qualification of general contracting, cost consulting and construction supervision. We also gained the right to operate abroad directly, and gradually established the developing direction of the corporation.
In 2001, according to the reorganization of many national Survey and Design Institute, China United Engineering Co.,Ltd formally established. We further established the development strategy on international engineering, and reform the organization and system of the enterprise. At the same time, we studied the advanced theory of domestic and abroad counterparts, innovated the systems of management and business operation, developed the market of general contracting, project management and practicing government assigned agent. As completed lots of projects in civilian architecture engineering, industrial engineering, electric power, industrial equipment, urban planning and municipal engineering, we gained lots of experience, strengthened our working team, improved the returns and we are trying to enter the international market.
Among the projects we had done in recent years, we gained lots of national awards, including “Lu Ban Award”, “Zhan Tianyou Chinese Civil Engineering Award”, “Ten Construction Application of New Technology Demonstration Project”,” “Bronze Key Award for General Contract” and “Project Management Silver Award”. Our corporation gained the Honor of "Excellent General Contracting Enterprise”, which was handed by China Survey and Design Association at Chinese sixtieth anniversary of founding.
