Faithful+Gould served as project management and project controls consultant to support the execution of two major Michelin North America projects in South Carolina. These projects included:
- A 792,063-square-foot Earthmover tire manufacturing facility
- A 420,000-square-foot expansion facility to the existing Michelin rubber compound production plant, adjacent to the Earthmover tire facility
Acting in an owner's assistance role on the projects, the Faithful+Gould teams provided monitoring and control of the EPC contractor's safety, quality, scheduling and cost management practices and procedures. Additionally, the team managed an independent design review team who are charged with assuring that the Michelin requirements are met and their standards applied.
As part of our project controls services we provided cost and schedule monitoring, variation and change order review and negotiation and detailed cost estimates on large and potential changes. At the completion of the project we provided detailed cost reports to assist in the reimbursement of tax rebates and grants and asset management and for a historical cost library.
