Students in the Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management have a new resource to help visualize industrial construction projects.

Fluor Corporation has donated a model of a Natural Gas Expander Project from its offices in Houston to incorporate into industrial construction classes.

“FLUOR was the first engineering company to design a unit that would receive natural gas in a liquid state from the unique style ships and expand it to a gaseous form to be distributed through the various pipelines,” said John M. Scarlato, Project Control Team Lead with Fluor.

LSU became a Fluor Partner University in 2007, and the relationship has since expanded and strengthened significantly. Fluor's historical support of LSU began in 1992, and total giving has exceeded more than $500,000.

For more than 100 years, Fluor Corporation has partnered with its clients to design, build and maintain many of the world's most challenging and complex capital projects. More than 41,000 employees provide comprehensive engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, fabrication, operations, maintenance and project management services.

The company serves a global client base in the energy, chemicals, government, industrial, infrastructure, operations and maintenance, manufacturing and life sciences, mining, power and transportation sectors. Headquartered in Irving, Texas, Fluor ranks 124 on the FORTUNE 500 list and had revenue of $27.6 billion in 2012. In January, Fluor’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Seaton was recognized by the National Safety Council for the company’s commitment to world-class safety.
