The Concord® Fundamentals series is designed to empower capital project professionals by making the Advanced Work Packaging process easy to understand.
Concord® exists to empower capital project professionals. Part of the way we achieve this mission is by providing high-quality educational content free to anyone who wants to learn. The articles we’ve collected below are part of our year-long effort to document the foundations of Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) using straight-forward, accessible language. Our goal with these pieces is to de-mystify the AWP methodology, making it accessible to anyone who is interested in learning more. For those who are working in the field and want to go deeper, Concord® also offers in-depth certification courses through the Concord® Academy.

Engineering Work Packages
An Engineering Work Package (EWP) is a diverse set of engineering deliverables that are assembled to support a specified scope of construction work. They typically form the basis of Construction and Installation Work Packages, and so they’re a foundational component of the AWP process. Here’s how to do it right.
Workface Planning is the organization of field execution around the creation of fully resourced packages of work that can be executed by a single construction crew in a discrete period of time, typically five to 10 day or around 1,000 hours. These blocks of work are called Installation Work Packages (IWPs). Here’s an introductory guide to how and when to implement them.
