Tower building

Owen International Owen has been involved in international projects for nearly 20 years and has provided comprehensive architectural/engineering design, design-build, and construction support services to over 30 clients in over 10 countries around the world. Owen has been involved in projects in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Qatar, Iraq, Canada, and Mexico. Owen has provided its services for commercial developers, transportation agencies, the oil and gas industry, and the military. The majority of these projects have been completed utilizing a design-build delivery method. This ensures delivery of our projects with cost efficiency, within budget, on schedule, and to the full satisfaction of our clients. The Owen team has the experience and a staff knowledgeable in cloud based technology. This allows us to mobilize quickly and immediately begin assisting our international clients on their projects.

Experience Where It Counts Schlumberger Oil Operations Base Basra, Iraq

Schlumberger Oil Operations Base

Owen teamed with Baghdad-based, design/build construction firm, ALMCO, to implement an oil operations base for Schlumberger in the North Rumayla Oilfield, about 42 kilometers from Basra, Iraq. Owen provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP) and structural engineering for the facilities. The scope of facility development entailed the design and construction of a small industrial/residential campus of approximately 160,000 square meters. The campus includes residential accommodations for workers, as well as facilities for food preparation and dining, recreation, ablution and showering, lavatories, medical clinic, religious accommodations, office and administration, support, and safe haven. Industrial facilities include maintenance workshops, oil equipment service facilities, wash bays, labs, power generation, water and wastewater treatment, tanks, and other allied facilities. The campus is surrounded by a security berm, walls, fencing, and other security facilities. Construction on the project was completed in 2011

Shell Oil and Gas Operations Complex Khor Al Zubair, Iraq

Shell Oil and Gas Operations Complex

Owen was retained by ALMCO, a Baghdad Iraqbased design/build construction firm, to design the Shell Gas Iraq KAZ oil and gas operations complex in Khor Al Zubair, Iraq (southern Iraq). It consists of a wide variety of facilities for worker accommodations and other functions. The accommodations buildings include 13 residential buildings. The other buildings in the Shell Gas Iraq KAZ oil and gas operations complex include a variety of buildings that are typical of this type of industrial community. These include main office/security, kitchen and dining facility, medical clinic, recreation/ gym facility, camp administration office, laundry, mosque, guard towers, and security perimeter. MEP design, IT design and structural design for all buildings covers HVAC, controls, domestic cold water, domestic hot water, waste, vent, plumbing fixtures, electrical power, lighting, data and voice communications systems, and building structures.

U.S. Army Limited Fueling Stations Tallil and Numaniyah, Iraq

U.S. Army Limited Fueling Stations

U.S. Army Limited MOI Maintenance Complex Salman Pak, Iraq

U.S. Army Limited MOI Maintaenance Complex

Owen provided the mechanical design work that included fueling equipment, piping, and control systems for the fueling stations in Tallil and Numaniyah, Iraq.

Owen provided electrical engineering design services for a new maintenance building in Salman Pak, Iraq. This project was delivered using the design-build method.

The fueling stations each consist of seven 100,000 liter of mogas tanks, seventeen 100,000 liter of diesel tanks, two 50,000 liter kerosene tanks, two 10,000 liter oil tanks, and associated piping and fueling equipment. Both projects were delivered using the design-build method.

The project is a vehicle maintenance complex, which consists of a maintenance garage, warehouses, barracks, ablution/laundry facilities, power house, and a fuel station.

U.S. Army Taji Air Traffic Control Tower Taji, Iraq

Northern Second Freeway Keelung Hsiche Section Taiwan

US Army Taji Air Traffic Control Tower Northern Second Freeway - Keelung Hsiche Section

Owen provided full design services for the air traffic control tower at the Taji Air Base in Iraq. Owen provided structural engineering design Our scope of work involved architectural, structural, services for a design/build project of an 11-mile mechanical, electrical, plumbing and civil engineering viaduct using an Incremental Launch System in design services. This project was delivered using the Taipei, Taiwan. design-build method.

The project was done in two segments. The first segment was with an Incremental Launch System and the second segment was with moving travelers. The project was completed two months ahead of schedule.

Firm Experience Utilizing BIM Owen Group, Inc. Founded: 1997 Form of Organization: Corporation Total Employees: 40

Owen has provided comprehensive architectural engineering design, design-build and construction services to over 30 clients in over 10 countries, including: • China • Hong Kong • Taiwan • South Korea • Indonesia • Thailand • India • Qatar

BIM modeling is used so that construction workers can easily understand the construction means and methods. Owen’s staff is fully trained and skilled in the use of the latest version of BIM software, specifically REVIT and NavisWorks. We use BIM/REVIT in collaboration with the other design disciplines, specifically structural engineering, MEP engineering, and architecture. In this way, the 3-D BIM model is developed so that all design features are properly located within the available space with no conflicts and clashes. We go beyond the 3-D model into 4-D and 5-D by including attributes such as equipment specifications and ratings, cost information, and scheduling information. Once the BIM model is mostly complete, we use NavisWorks software for clash control. This software identifies all places where various building and system elements conflict in occupying intersecting space. If these clashes were left undetected, they would be the source of RFIs and change orders once the contractor developed shop drawings. Instead, we employ clash control to identify and resolve these conflicts in the design phase. This results in a well-coordinated set of drawings that significantly minimizes RFIs and potential change orders. We use web-based BIM and Plan Review Management Systems that bring Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Plan Review coordination to the web. This allows for a coordinated system that communicates directly with leading designers and other software. Data formats and exchanges are handled through the Cloud server, thereby eliminating compatibility issues between different software platforms. This further enables effective and timely collaboration. The transparency between BIM objects and external project management systems makes it the only web-based technology where model analysis such as clash detection, estimates, scheduling, and RFIs can all occur within the same live model on the web. 3D models/drawings or 2D drawings updates on the Cloud server are available instantly to project participants in offices around the globe.
