Owner’s Engineer for Transmission System Projects


As a leading engineering firm in the power industry, Sargent & Lundy has built a reputation for quality, client satisfaction, and the capability to tackle large, challenging projects. These attributes apply not only to in-house projects, but also when we serve as owner’s engineer to our clients. We have developed and implemented project management skills and tools to successfully projects with budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars involving multiple subcontractors, consultants, material suppliers, and contractors. Representing the project Owner, Sargent & Lundy provides the full range of services to coordinate, document, schedule and control, contract, and commission all types of transmission system projects.

Our in-depth knowledge allows us to collaborate with the Owner to identify, quantify, assign responsibility, and manage risks that are inherent in every large project. Moving forward, this risk management plan is incorporated into the budget and schedule controls, as well as the overall project management program. Depending on the plan developed with the Owner, we perform or manage conceptual studies, permitting, and preliminary engineering. We then identify bidders, develop bid packages, conduct bidding, evaluate bids, and support contract execution. Contractor deliverables are reviewed, quality assurance surveillance is performed, construction is managed, and commissioning is planned and coordinated by the Sargent & Lundy team to meet the Owner’s requirements.
