From Amsterdam to Hyderabad to Florida, companies around the world are leveraging AWP to deliver on-time and on-budget
Advanced Work Packaging has swept through the capital project sector with extraordinary speed over the past decade, adopted by companies big and small who are committed to delivering predictable projects on-time and on-budget. Construction-driven project execution is now considered best practice by many capital project construction leaders, and AWP has been implemented in areas ranging from residential real estate to spaceship construction. Take a look at these six newsmakers who are committed to AWP!
$436M Motorway Project in Hooipolder, Netherlands
Early in 2023, Fluor and Ballast Nedam (ALSÉÉN) announced a joint venture to widen the A27 motorway from Everdingen to Hooipolder, highlighting the use of Advanced Work Packaging in the press release. Working for the Ministry of Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) to perform design, construction and maintenance services, the companies will widen nearly 25 miles of the existing motorway, repair the junction, replace two bridges and connect the roadway to a future business park. The press release says the design will be finalized during the first phase of the project, “allowing for full site investigations, complete design packages, advanced work packaging,” and more.
$1 Billion Kasawari Carbon Capture and Sequestration Project
Billed as the world’s largest offshore carbon capture and sequestration project, Petronas’s RN4.5 Billion ($1B USD) installation will see contractors using AWP to deliver on-time and on-budget. In a press release, Ranhill Utilities Bhd announced that subsidiary Ranhill Worley Sdn Bhd (RWSB) would perform front end engineering design (FEED) on the project. The scope will include the carbon dioxide technology specification, evaluation and selection, along with design and engineering development for the platform, jacket, bridge and pipeline. “The team’s focus is on development of a well thought-out design solution that meets safety, operability and maintainability requirements while driving for reduced Total Installed Cost,” the company said. “The design will be enhanced through use of digital driven systems and tools including use of Advanced Work Packaging to provide optimal benefit.”
$10 billion Golden Pass LNG
The Journal of Petroleum Technology recently reported that Zachry Industrial used AWP to plan construction of the Golden Pass LNG Export project, a $10 billion facility upgrade of the existing liquified natural gas terminal in Sabine Pass, Texas. The project involved thousands of people installing millions of pieces sourced from around the world, including 1.9 million feet of pipe. “Zachry leveraged Advanced Work Packaging to improve visibility on project performance throughout the entire project life cycle, removing the need for slow and error-prone manual methods,” the article says, with estimated savings of over 29,000 resource hours for scheduling and 120,000 resource hours on work package development.
10 Million Sq. Ft. of Residential Real Estate Across Hyderabad
Billing itself as a forward-thinking “new age” real estate company, Ashoka Builders India Pvt Ltd has delivered more than 10 million square feet of residential real estate on-time and on-budget using Advanced Work Packaging. Founder and CEO Ajitesh Korupolu says the company aspires to be the top real estate developer in Hyderabad, delivering high-quality homes in a timely fashion. “ASBL aims to provide its customers the comforts of a five-star hotel and the warmth of a home,” he told Hans India last month. “Moreover, we ensure timely and high-quality delivery of our projects through new-age construction technology,” he said, adding the company uses Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) to facilitate efficient, effective construction-driven engineering and planning.

Grand Isle Shipyard: Adopting AWP After 75 Years in Business
Established in 1948 in Grand Isle, Louisiana, Grand Isle Shipyard started as a modest company serving the commercial fishing industry and quickly evolved to serve the oil and gas sector in the Gulf of Mexico. Founded and led by four generations of the Pregeant family, the company has expanded into “a formidable one-stop-shop service provider for the energy and infrastructure sectors,” according to Boss Magazine. For more than a decade, GIS has partnered with Aberdeen, Scotland-based MODS to digitize project management. “The seamless project management system provides advanced work packaging, progress tracking, fabrication tracking, materials management, completions, and joint integrity modules,” Boss Magazine writes, adding that “the move enables GIS to gain efficiency, provide more enhanced quality checks, reduce costs, flawlessly manage over 100,000 pieces of material, helping to deliver projects faster and below budget.”

NASA’s Artemis Program
The Artemis missions are extraordinarily ambitious, landing the first woman and first person of color on the moon, exploring the lunar surface, working to establish a long-term presence on the moon and then aiming for Mars. An article in the Engineering News-Record revealed that the construction of $402 million Mobile launcher 2 (ML2) will build on lessons learned from the construction of its predecessor, ML1. “After going through over 10 years of building ML1, and all of the lessons learned that came from that, we spent quite a bit of time with NASA optimizing the design on ML2,” says Bechtel’s Costas, adding that “modularization techniques and advanced work packaging adopted from the oil and gas sector are cutting design and construction time.
