3.2.5 Project Oversight
DSM provides technical review and oversight on Client specific engineering projects. DSM's team of engineers and environmental specialists serve as an Statement of Qualifications Page No. 13 DSM Environmental Services, Inc. addition to Client staff for the review and oversight of proposed or contracted projects. DSM personnel will review the project's conceptual design, process flow diagrams, P&ID's, foundation recommendations, technical concepts, written communications, and all other aspects of a project. These oversight reviews will provide the Client with the assurance that process design, technology selection, equipment selection and procurement, installation scheduling, operating procedures, operator training, and overall system performance is appropriate to the project scope, completed at minimum cost and operated in a safe and environmentally effective manner. DSM's project oversight can eliminate the possibility of poorly designed or engineered systems as well as ensure the installation of a system that will perform to expectations with minimal concern or necessity for litigated solutions.
