McGough’s industrial division, which is staffed by experts with more than a century of combined experience, assists owners by managing the entire construction process, from early planning through startup and commissioning. Early and continuous involvement on industrial construction projects is critical, enabling owners to optimize cost and schedule – while maintaining safety and quality standards – as circumstances evolve throughout construction.

McGough’s industrial project focus includes agriculture and bioproducts, manufacturing and high tech; and our project experience spans a multitude of construction settings, including greenfield development, existing plant expansions and shutdowns/turnarounds. Further, our value-added services ensure that project outcomes are optimized – not only throughout construction, but operation as well. Our industrial services include:

  • Front end engineering design (FEED) budget and schedule development
  • Site logistics and development planning
  • Health, safety and environmental planning
  • Value engineering
  • Constructability reviews
  • Future expansion assessments
  • Specification and drawing development
  • Self-perform capabilities
  • Subcontractor prequalification, evaluation, selection, coordination and monitoring
  • Critical lift / heavy haul planning
  • RFI and change request review and processing
  • BIM modeling
  • Contract administration
  • Field construction supervision
  • Coordination of as-built drawings and operations and maintenance manuals
