This type of cooperation model is used in medium and large industrial investments covering design, technology and construction.

Contractor of your investment

Why is the EPC model so popular?


The reason is a number of advantages, such as reducing the investor's risk andusing the EPC model as a tool for managing all phases of the project.

In the eyes of the investor, the EPC model increases his comfort because an experienced General Contractor takes over the responsibility and risks related to design, deliveries, construction, acceptance, etc.

Investment financing companies also prefer to work with one supplier of complete infrastructure, because one contract includes a set price, milestones, deadlines and payment schedule.

This model of cooperation between the Supplier, the Investor and the Bank increases the chance of quickly closing the financing and starting the investment.





Scope of works of the EPC Contractor

3 stages of investment implementation 

The EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) model is an approach to project implementation that includes three main stages:

1. Engineering (Engineering):

  • The first stage involves the development and design of the project. During this time, all technical and engineering aspects of the project are determined. Designers, engineers and industry specialists work to create detailed plans and technical specifications.

  • The key goal of this stage is to precisely define the scope of the project, determine technical requirements and create a comprehensive plan that will be the basis for subsequent stages. This documentation may include technical drawings, material specifications, work schedules, etc.


2. Purchases (Procurement):

  • During the purchasing stage, all necessary materials, equipment and services needed to implement the project are obtained. The general contractor or investor can conduct the tender process, negotiate contracts with suppliers and subcontractors, and make purchases in accordance with established specifications.

  • The purpose of this stage is to ensure the availability of all necessary resources in a timely manner and in accordance with established quality standards.


3. Construction:

  • In the third stage, i.e. construction, the physical implementation of the project begins based on the developed plans and specifications. Construction works are supervised by the general contractor, who manages the construction team and coordinates various stages of the construction process.

  • During this stage, work related to the construction, installation, assembly and testing of systems is performed. This also includes managing the work schedule, quality control and maintaining safety on the construction site.

The EPC model allows for a more integrated approach to project delivery because the company or team responsible for project execution is involved in all three key areas: engineering, procurement and construction. This approach aims to minimize potential communication complications between the various entities involved in the project.

Advantages of cooperation with the General Contractor

Working with a general contractor has many potential advantages that can contribute to the successful implementation of a construction project. Here are some of the main benefits of working with a general contractor:

  1. Managing the overall project: The general contractor is responsible for managing all aspects of the project, from start to finish. He coordinates the work of various subcontractors, manages the supply of materials, supervises the work schedule and ensures that the budget is adhered to.

This can significantly reduce the investor's stress level and involvement in everyday construction matters.

  3. Negotiations with subcontractors: The general contractor has experience in negotiating with various subcontractors and suppliers. It can obtain better prices for services and materials, which translates into potential savings for the investor.

  4. Responsibility for quality and timeliness: The general contractor bears full responsibility for the quality of workmanship and timely delivery of the project. This means that the investor can expect that the work will be carried out in accordance with the established standards and schedule.

  5. Access to the subcontractor network: The general contractor often cooperates with various industry specialists. Thanks to this, it has access to proven subcontractors, which may contribute to better quality of work in particular fields.

  6. Cost optimization: By effectively managing project resources and costs, a general contractor can help optimize the project budget.

  7. Solving problems: A general contractor is an experienced professional who can effectively deal with any problems and challenges that may arise during the construction project.

  8. Compliance with regulations and standards: A general contractor is usually well-versed in local building codes and industry standards, which helps maintain compliance with legal requirements.
