Construction Management

Your petroleum construction projects require a great deal of thought, planning, equipment and materials selection, management and expert experience to deliver project that meet all your expectations.

Typically this means hiring multiple contractors and vendors who may not achieve the level of professionalism and integration of activities to give you superior results. Often, your expectations are not met, from meeting budget KPIs, timeline schedules, and quality assurances. Not to mention the headaches and aggravations that comes with all of this.

The solution?

ATC Eclipse Construction Management Services can oversee and execute ALL phases of your project.

Construction Management has been designed by ATC Eclipse for single source contracting and management for any combination of construction services at single or multiple facilities.

The key element is the assignment of a program manager to be the single point of contact throughout the program. The program manager will oversee and execute all phases of the program, including site surveys, project design, site specific scopes of work, specification of equipment, oversight and execution of fuel system upgrades and installations.

The objective of the program manager is to provide a premium level of service through consistent, streamlined contract management, and a clear and effective line of communication.

Subcontractor selection and management is critical to program success. To ensure control, the program managers have developed long-term relationships with a number of qualified subcontractors, who can meet our stringent requirements and have proven track records. Subcontractors are selected based on the following criteria:

  • PEI and/or State Tank Contractor’s Association Membership
  • Petroleum Equipment Training and Certifications
  • OSHA Safety Training and Certifications
