WHAT WE DO
KGC is a leader in construction and engineering, while setting the benchmark for safety performance and cost effective quality workmanship. KGC offers specialized site teams to perform all forms of structural, mechanical and piping installation, construction, plant shutdown repair, refurbishment and planned maintenance functions. These teams present an alternative solution that is highly responsive and flexible, with a uniform commitment to safety, quality and efficiency.
KGC can also reduce the number of contractors required on civil, structural, mechanical and electrical installation works, ultimately minimizing interface issues and streamlining workflows. All KGC activities are supported by technical services including planning and scheduling, civil, mechanical and electrical subcontracting, reliability engineering, failure analysis and predictive maintenance.
KGC is a multi-disciplinary engineering company specializing in construction, with a diverse range of supporting services which include:
KGC also provides specialist supervised construction labor services, with a current database of more than 25,000 experienced personnel that includes former employees and external candidates, allowing us to undertake all types of construction, maintenance and shutdown contracts. The varied and multi-skilled workforce maximizes resource effectiveness in all types of activities, as well as lowering project recruitment costs and workload for HR and operations staff.
We take pride in the fact that our people are exceptionally qualified, from our engineering staff to our laborers. We strive for nothing short of excellence in all that we do. What makes us stand out among our competitors is our system and process, no matter what the project demands, or how challenging the environment is, we deploy the same efficient turn-key system and process. This enables us to tailor our services specifically to our client's requirements.
KGC shares safety philosophy, which is interfaced with our client's own safety policies and procedures. KGC management is accountable for providing the safety process, practices, structure, equipment, supervision and training, so that employees and sub-contractors are free from the risk of workplace injury and illness.
KGC workers act as defacto safety officers, required to report any unsafe or hazardous conditions to their KGC site supervisor, or HSE staff from the client or KGC. Workers have the right to stop work whenever HSE violations are observed which could jeopardize the well being of personnel, equipment, or facilities.
KGC gives achieving the highest standards of Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) performance the utmost importance and makes this a key organizational objective. Improvement in safety procedures is constant, as we are continually auditing our sites and completing on-site work observations of our peers' work practices. We recognize the benefits of effective OSHA management, both in human and economic terms.
KGC construction and maintenance believes planning and scheduling is absolutely critical for achieving a successful outcome on any project. Project plans are developed for use by the client, project manager and the project management team.
Planning requirements for complex projects can be very diverse, encompassing any of the following disciplines:
We use Microsoft Project and Primavera as our primary scheduling tools. These packages are selected to suit the client's request, or the complexity of the project to develop a project schedule. Careful consideration is given to develop the project Work Breakdown Structure and to detail the activities sufficiently to a manageable and measurable level. This enables us to include major contract milestones and deliverables, to allocate resources for meeting the desired level of control and monitoring.
On major projects, the scheduling process runs parallel to the estimation stage, which enables base lining a fully resourced schedule and establishes control almost at the point of award of the contract.
Together with our clients, we develop maintenance agreements and programs that leave them free to focus on their core business of production, while we take responsibility for keeping plant and equipment in peak operating condition. These agreements are designed to encourage continuous improvement and shared benefits with clients.
Commitment: On-time and on-budget
KGC specializes in the timely and cost effective hire of labor from all trades and, where applicable, semi-qualified personnel screened from our own database. We have achieved an excellent performance record in planned maintenance and the overhaul of both fixed plant and mobile equipment. A strong emphasis on clear workforce communication ensures that client reporting is accurate, while our commitment to meeting best practice standards ensures we do what is required to get it right the first time.
KGC’s projects continue to increase in scope and value, with major projects completed for clients such as:
GK Steel, Iraq
KGC, Dubai & India
Al Dhaleel, Kuwait
KGC's multi-disciplined approach to meeting its clients' needs is a key point of differentiation in today's highly competitive markets. Engineering solutions encompass all critical elements, from design and construction to maintenance, using in-house expertise. This integrated approach offers KGC's clients high performance and reliability for the operational life of the product or system, together with reduced maintenance and operating costs.
Our steady climb to success is rooted in honesty, integrity, delivering as promised and hard work. At the core of everything we do at KGC is integrity and compliance with our Code of Business Conduct (CBC). The CBC sets forth the foundation for commitment to these principles.
