Tier2 have defined their services such as, to provide clients’ with an experienced, cost efficient, flexible and performance focused IPMT.
As part of the Fircroft group, we partner with global resource providers to offer a turnkey Scope of Work (SOW) service, whereby Tier2 provide the leadership PMT and our partners supply project wide resources.
Our DNA is formed from our operator background and our members project execution successes. We are skilled at planning and leading the full project scope from concept development, through management of design and construction to safe handover to operations.
We establish with all our clients a performance-based contract, aligned to KPIs to ensure we deliver against our commitment and continually measure our IPMT success throughout the project.
We have intentionally focused on three distinct service categories,
- Concept development and investor Due diligence
- IPMT Services for – FEED, Optimise, Define and Execute
- Operations Readiness and Support
Our service categories enable our IPMT leaders to integrate their experience of executing projects at the conceptual stage to ensure, risk, constructability is defined. We bring our knowledge of design, construction, commissioning and start-up to execution and integrate the project to underpin operations readiness planning and support.
Tier2 work closely with multiple clients to understand their project development plans and to manage the industry project peaks and troughs. Our integrated project approach enables the client organisations to retain a lean, specialist PMT organisation, sized to maintain and deliver business critical projects, whilst being able to deliver peak workloads through Tier2 and reduce costs, during lean project periods.
We can comfortably demonstrate our proven abilities as an IPMT to manage the full EPCM scope, leading engineering and the project supply-chain with qualities and values that reflect both our clients’ and our own values.
We support our clients through each stage of the project development cycle, from concept to operations handover and deliver, as one team to operations, as a principle stakeholder to the business investment plan.
All our IPMT members are supported and developed within Tier2 to ensure our focus is to reduce cost, add value across the supply-chain and that we hold accountability for our performance to our clients. We continuously challenge ourselves to ensure we add value to the project process and that we are in fact securing the client capital investment objectives.
Tier2 joined forces with Fircroft Global Manpower Management in 2019 to develop the IPMT concept and to combine our industry expertise, to deliver a truly unique Client turnkey resource and performance managed project solution.

Our group leadership structure, ensures that our members are performance managed, supported and operate within our values and code of conduct.
We are not consultants by our DNA, but are a dedicated IPMT, focused to formalise and structure projects for successful, safe and economic delivery.
We provide our IPMT to clients that do not have an in-house project team, or seek to reduce their in house PMT costs, through integration of key Tier2 members, as a dedicated resource to underpin and deliver, as their project partners.
Tier2 integrate the client and our operations team within the IPMT. We ensure within the project supply-chain, that the operations statement of requirement is clear and incorporated, as key deliverables within the project.
Our operations team participate at all stages of the project to review and approve, with the client operations representatives, that the operation requirements are incorporated and meet the performance specifications.
Operations readiness and planning for a safe start-up are central to the operations representative on the project. Our operations leads ensure that with the client operations team, all requirements are planned, peer reviewed and delivered in parallel with the project.
Tier2 operations provide specific support to the client operations teams, as a turnkey engineering and project services organisation.
We support the operations teams with our IPMT functions and our engineering supply-chain, to deliver the complete technical and project deliverables scope.
Tier2 has specific expertise in facilities and pipeline infrastructure, design, maintenance and repair. We work with the client operations team to identify the operational demands and identify technical and projects options.
We focus to define and minimise down time, control of works, risk, safety, construction and integration to maintain facility operations performance.
Tier2’s innovation and experience provides clients the opportunity to access Tier2 members’ extensive energy sector, engineering and project management expertise, cost effectively.
We are not consultants in our DNA, so are not geared to selling services, We are an execute focused organisation, defined to deliver through our knowledge and skilled leadership of major projects, IPMT services, as trusted partners to our clients.

Tier2 have through their knowledge and experience of working on major projects, within the engineering and energy sectors applied an industry model called, the capital projects managed process.
Our industry recognised model, ensures that all projects are stage gate evaluated to ensure safe, cost effective, technically compliant projects can be constructed and achieve safe, reliable integration with operations.
We support clients as integrated members, with our robust and clear managed delivery approach across our IPMT, taking a project from investment opportunity, through concept development to present the investment technical and project options.
We continue to support the client with our IPMT functions at all stages of the project process through scheme optimisation, define, execute and operate.
Tier2 is an integrated team – our leadership team can naturally undertake lead positions with the client organisation, where they do not have an in-house resource, or we can underpin the client team with our bespoke IPMT members.
Below we provide an overview of the capital project process:
The project starts here. A major project investment success depends on the early accurate evaluation of the concepts and investment options.
Tier2 members have a track record of performing stage-gate, peer, project execution and focused technical / construct-ability reviews that will provide the decision makers with information concerning the risk profile-technical-construction-cost and schedule class 1 estimates of the project options.
We will assess the HSSE, technical proposal, project delivery strategy, operations statement of requirements, contracting strategy/commercial provisions, cultural, community, environmental factors and project risk as part of a key focus areas review.
Project selection, optimisation and FEED
Project selection, optimisation and FEED is a critical stage in the project cycle. It ensures the conceptual assumptions when assessed within the overall project context are a compatible and commercial choice.
Tier2 IPMT members have the experience to plan and develop the selected project investment options. We lead the project supply-chain specialists through FEED to optimise for value and define the project definition, suitable to secure robust class 2 cost and schedule estimates.
We support our clients with the stage gate project reviews to consider project risk and mitigation to support the financial decision process to approve to detail design and execution.
Project Detail Design & Procurement (Define)
Our IPMT is structured, as an integrated team and adopts industry control and interface managed systems to integrate engineering and the vendor’s supply-chain within the project.
We can from within our IPMT, or as integrated members of the client team manage the detail design stage of the project through the EPC supply chain. We will ensure the project is risk managed, engineering defined, long lead items procured, and the project meets the governing standards of technical, cost, safety, quality and environmental to meet the business investment plan.
Construction – commissioning and handover to operations (Execute to Operate)
Tier2 IPMT can support our clients, as construction managers utilising our IPMT discipline functions to manage the delivery and performance of the project through construction commissioning – start-up and handover to operations.
Our leadership team are all from an engineering, construction and operations background. We know the importance of defining commissioning, quality and the need to complete robust safety and constructability reviews, as key obligations to support an efficient, safe start up and handover to operations.
