Project Excellence Award for Hyperscale Data Center Project
Fluor was awarded the CIPE award for its Hyperscale Data Center project in Finland. CIPE awards recognize project teams for outstanding delivery of capital projects. The award judging committee evaluated the ability to add value, eliminate waste and increase overall excellence in five areas: safety, cost performance, schedule performance, quality and innovation. Fluor won in the international $500-million to $1-billion projects category.
Safety Excellence Award for ASR Domino Sugar Refinery Rebuild
Fluor was awarded the CISE award for its rebuilding of two sugar silos at the 111-year-old ASR Domino Sugar refinery located in Chalmette, Louisiana, after they were almost destroyed by fire in August 2020. Fluor deployed the day after the fire and provided immediate site cleanup, extensive repairs and restoration of the fire-damaged silos and associated machine rooms. The rebuild included assembly of engineered circular scaffolding systems to address logistics around each 80’ high silo located on the top of a 60’ tall building roof and the removal of 1.8 million pounds of sugar that was stored in each silo prior to the fire. Fluor won in the Heavy Construction Contractors 200,000 to 500,000 work hours per-year category.
Workforce Training Award for N.C. Pharmaceutical Facility
Fluor’s third award, the CIWD award, was for workforce training related to a pharmaceutical facility in North Carolina.
