EPC Contractor Services Engineering, Procurement, & Construction Expertise

Under an EPC contract, the contractor designs the facility, procures the necessary equipment and materials, and builds the project. In most cases, the EPC contractor carries the project risk for the schedule as well as the budget in return for a fixed price or guaranteed maximum price (GMP), depending on the agreed upon scope of work. When the scope is restricted to engineering and procurement, this is referred to as an EP, E and P, or E+P contract. This is often done in situations in which trade contractors are hired to perform the different scopes of work or when the owner does the construction.

What People Are Saying

“I had the opportunity to work with M. B. Kahn on the building of two facilities for Kiswire – a major 609,000 SF project in Newberry, South Carolina [and] a new plant in Pine Bluff, Arkansas… I worked with them for over three years on these projects and had great success with them… they ran a very good project and were always there when we had questions or concerns.  They are willing to work with you and keep you informed of any of their concerns or needs. I always knew what was happening and where the project was, regarding the time and schedule. If I ever have another project, they would be the first I called to quote the job.”
