WD Partners has been providing architecture and engineering services for ExxonMobil since 1996. As the global prototype architects, WD was asked to develop a flexible family of prototypes so that ExxonMobil could easily use different sizes and configurations in its major market areas.
Because materials, methods of construction, and construction skill levels differ widely around the world, standards and specifications are critical to ensuring that stores are brand-right, consistent, and operationally efficient, not to mention opened on-schedule and on-budget. WD’s highly detailed and prescriptive prototype set of A/E construction documents provide specifications that limit variations in equipment and materials, while still allowing for adaptation to local practices and conditions.
- Provided construction drawings for the US, Europe and Asia that minimize change orders, avoid corresponding construction delays, and enforce ExxonMobil’s global procurement process.
- ExxonMobil’s Asset Managers appreciate the degree of control and predictability-of- spend that our design standards achieve.
- Strategic sourcing of equipment per the standards improves operational efficiency and controls maintenance and repair costs.
- ExxonMobil has earned a high rate of return on their investment across their total development cycle.
