PEK utilizes a Front-End Loading (FEL) approach to engineering that consists of three distinct phases. FEL is a valuable process that can significantly improve the success of a capital project when executed effectively. The process involves the development of strategic information and key documentation necessary for project owners to address potential project risks, make informed decisions, and maximize the potential for project success.


The three phases of FEL are:

FEL 1: Opportunity Identification and Assessment

FEL 2: Scope Development and Conceptual Engineering

FEL 3/Front-End Engineering Design (FEED): Execution Planning and Basic Engineering


When utilized as a formal stage-gate process, FEL can be used as an approval process with gates after each phase to allow key stakeholders to make informed decisions regarding investments. Each gate must be passed before proceeding to project execution.

Individual phases of FEL, such as FEL 3/FEED, can also be performed standalone depending on the level of planning required for a given capital project. FEL can add significant benefits to a project such as increased schedule and cost predictability, a reduced probability of project failures, improved operational performance, better achievement of business goals, and fewer changes to the project scope.


PEK understands the importance of FEL in the engineering process and offers a full range of design engineering services that include FEL for infrastructure, mining and metals, oil and gas, metallurgy and steelmaking, energy, and transportation projects. Our multidisciplinary team of experts is dedicated to delivering innovative and sustainable solutions that meet the unique needs of each project. We develop robust scope definitions, highly accurate cost estimates, and valuable deliverables that can be leveraged throughout the entire project life cycle.


We offer a wide range of FEL deliverables that vary from project to project depending on the scope and requirements of the client. Our FEL deliverables include, but are not limited to, preliminary TIC estimates, process flow diagrams, mechanical and piping drawings, instrumentation and electrical diagrams, and structural sketches.


TIC stands for Total Installed Cost, which is the sum of all costs associated with a capital project, including engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and start-up costs. TIC estimates are an essential component of the FEL process and are typically provided during the early stages of a project.


Let PEK help you make the best investment decision possible for your capital project with our commitment to excellence and attention to detail.
