Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers.

Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers has long been a partner in the development of Alaska's resources. Already a major player prior to statehood, Fluor provided engineering and construction services for projects such as the Eielson Air Force Base power plant and the CANOL and Haines pipeline projects for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

"Fluor's involvement in Alaska grew during Prudhoe Bay development, as we became one of the major providers of engineering services for production facilities, the trans-Alaska pipeline and the Valdez terminal, states Jim Siedhoff, manager of Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers Alaska operations. The Anchorage office of Fluor Daniel opened its doors in 1984. This office was renamed Fluor Daniel Alaska in 1988, following Fluor's merger with Daniel Construction of Greenville, S.C.

Williams Brothers Engineering Co., whose engineers also have many years experience in the development of Alaska's petroleum industry, joined with the Fluor Daniel team in 1990. "Williams Brothers brought Fluor Daniel an even broader base of expertise, particularly in the area of onshore and offshore pipeline design, says Cecil Roberts, project manager. "Their arctic expertise, when combined with that of Fluor Daniel, provides our Alaska clients with an unparalleled package of capabilities."

Recently the trans-Alaska pipeline remedial work at Atigun Pass for Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. was awarded Project of the Year by the Project Management Institute (PMI) at both state and national levels. Williams Brothers' engineers provided the design and quality assurance services for this project.

Today, Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers continues to provide engineering service to commercial, industrial and government clients. "We are a full service engineering contractor, offering structural, architectural, mechanical and electrical design services," states Jim Landman, engineering manager.

"The majority of our workload support the oil and gas industry in Alaska," states Jim Siedhoff. "As a corporation, we have a world wide commitment to the petroleum industry, and we are committed to provide those quality services in Alaska as long as we are needed. While other companies elected to leave Alaska in the mid-80's downturn, we remained to provide service for our clients."

Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers is the largest engineering office in Alaska, currently employing more than 165 people. "The thing that makes this office work is our people," says Siedhoff. "We are not simply providing design and engineering services, we are matching people skills to client needs. Judging from our growth in Alaska, we must be doing something right."

"Every Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers employee is dedicated to serving the client by delivering a quality product, states Siedhoff. "In fact, our corporate mission is to assist clients in attaining a competitive advantage by delivering quality services of unmatched value."

Along with quality, Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers has a strong commitment to and an excellent track record for safety. The office recently received honors for completing four years of operations and 1,500,000 consecutive work hours without a serious disabling injury.

Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers offers a broad range of services that far exceeds facility design and engineering. Project management, cost and scheduling, material procurement, inspection, construction management, hazard/safety analysis, environmental remediation, equipment lease and maintenance and facility maintenance services are examples of services it offers its clients.

The firm recently received a Merit Award from the Municipality of Anchorage for its design of the new Chugach Electric Hillside Substation. Major clients include ARCO, Alyeska, BP Exploration and Alascom.

Should Alaskan clients needs exceed the capabilities of Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers local staff, a worldwide network of engineers and designers in more than 50 offices can be made available. In May, for the fifth consecutive year, Fluor Daniel was named No. 1 among the top 400 contractors in the United States by ENR, the engineering and construction industry's leading trade magazine, a distinction no other company has ever received.

Currently, Fluor Daniel Williams Brothers' attention and efforts have been focused on construction and quality control of the GHX-2 modules for Prudhoe Bay. Construction of these modules, the largest of their kind, is under way in New Iberia, La. They are scheduled for the upcoming 1993 sea lift to the North Slope.

"Our future success in Alaska will be determined by the degree to which we remain client focused," Siedhoff states. "We will continue to deliver quality engineering services that meet the unique challenges of the Alaska market place."
