Kleinfelder is currently providing Engineering and Construction Management services to a petrochemical client to support the operation of the Ethelyne Vinyl Acetate (EVA) Performance Polymers Facility in Edmonton, Alberta. Kleinfelder has seconded a team of personnel to the client's facility operating team to assist in satisfying its project management and technical requirements. In conjunction with the onsite personnel, Kleinfelder also provides full discipline engineering and design support out of our Edmonton office.
Kleinfelder uses a Portfolio Management model to monitor multiple projects for the client within the Edmonton office. A dedicated project manager coordinates all work coming in from both the client's and our Kleinfelder on-site staff. This single point of contact streamlines the work assignments to the home office engineering team and controls the prioritization of work and resources according to client's overall schedule and budget targets. This partnership has also allowed Kleinfelder to leverage our size and expertise to reduce costs and improve the work quality across a range of ongoing projects for the client.
