Engineering, Procurement and Construction Services (EPC)

In the manufacturing sector, our engineering, procurement and construction services (EPC) frequently serve as the preferred delivery solution for clients embarking on new construction, expansion or renovation projects. EPC services prove advantageous for project owners with smaller teams that may lack the purchasing power of global companies. Functioning as a turnkey integrator, our team orchestrates the design process, equipment procurement and oversees the startup and commissioning of both the equipment and the facility. McCownGordon utilizes its industry expertise and resources to consistently deliver better results.
