Call for nominations: Construction Management-as-Agent

Ken Blackler, head of the Construction Management Section

 (Click to view larger version...)
The ITER buildings are rising out of the ground, and now the ITER Organization is looking forward to the start of the next phase—the installation of the plant systems in the completed buildings and the assembly of the Tokamak itself.

In order to perform the installation of the components and utilities, which will involve around 2,000 workers at the peak, the ITER Organization will need the support of a Construction Management-as-Agent contractor (CMA). This contractor will work with the ITER Organization to plan, manage and supervise the works on the site—helping to ensure that all the different work crews are able to work most efficiently, having the right materials, drawings, documents and facilities to construct the ITER Tokamak and plant systems to high quality, on time and within cost.

Critical to the success of this next phase shall be integration and partnership between the project actors: the ITER Organization Central Team, the ITER Domestic Agencies, the CMA contractor and the works contractors.

The CMA will bring to the ITER Project industrial expertise in the areas of:

• planning, works contract management
• site coordination, material management
• works supervision, quality control, record keeping
• health, safety and environmental matters
• engineering support
• start-up and testing, maintenance management

The launch of the Call for Nominations for this contract marks the beginning of the process to place all the main contracts for the ITER assembly phase. As presented in the Assembly and Installation Information Day that was held on 21 May, the ITER Organization will also be launching the calls for nominations for the machine assembly, piping and mechanical works and electrical, I&C and cabling works contracts starting later this year.

Companies that wish to express an interest in the Construction Management-as-Agent contract shall express their interest through the ITER Organization Domestic Agencies. Full instructions are given on the ITER website.
