A.Hak implements Forward Integration

26 July 2017

The introduction of Forward Integration for Contractors (abbreviated in Dutch as VIA), changes the way in which projects for Dutch gas giant Gasunie are carried out. The most significant change VIA will cause is that contractors will be responsible for environment management (permits in particular), detailed engineering and the actual execution of all construction tasks.

To maintain manageability and transparency for the larger responsibility granted to the contractor, procedures and quality systems become more important. In the start-up phase of the VIA implementation, much time is therefore spent on the quality of these systems and their interdependence.

Switching to this new work method implies a learning curve for both the customer and the contractor. The contractors selected by Gasunie in a framework agreement will coordinate this process with a VIA team and an implementation manager. The Summer edition of A.Hak Magazine features an interview with A.Hak’s VIA implementation manager Margret Sneek.
