JGC Wins AWP Project Award Through Digital Partnership With MODS


We at MODS delight in celebrating our partners, JGC, who were announced as winners for the 2022 Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) Project Award owing to their use of MODS Origin on part of a USD 40 billion Total Installed Cost (TIC) project in Quin dao, China: the LNG Canada Project, an LNG process train module fabrication yard for Shell.



MODS teamed up with JGC – a first-tier contractor having executed more than 20,000 projects in over eighty countries to date – in 2015. Pioneering digital transformation in the construction of complex builds, JGC are major shareholders in MODS. Collaboratively, we invest time, energy and resource into data management through the development of MODS Origin, including the AWP module: Construct.




Kazuyuki Kojima, JGC’s Digital Project Delivery Department General Manager comments:


"We have been working with MODS since 2015 and put a lot of our construction management knowledge into Origin. I'm pleased to hear that our efforts have been recognized and awarded this prize.

It is a continuous journey for JGC and MODS, to keep on improving overall EPC project execution to be more predictable and low risk by feeding back construction requirement to the upstream activities."



The JGC-MODS collaboration revolves around continuous DX (digital transformation) and has evolved significantly since its inception. MODS Origin software has been integral to JGC’s DX evolution. MODS Origin Construct module is the AWP system used in the LNG Canada Project, for which the Large Project accolade was awarded.






Jon Bell, MODS CEO says:


“I would like to congratulate Shell and JGC on receiving the award for the use of AWP on a large capital project. I was fortunate enough to be at the North American AWP conference in Houston where this award was announced and delighted in hearing that MODS Origin was acknowledged as the digital solution used on the LNG Canada process train module fabrication project.”



For the LNG Canada Project, JGC used MODS Origin to connect with their Progress Measurement System to get more accurate and timely status of fabrication activities. Allowing all project stakeholders to view accurate information in real time and from anywhere, the MODS Origin AWP system helped project teams easily identify constraints in advance for lower-risk construction execution.




Cleiton Rodrigues, JGC’s Project Control Manager, says:


“The benefit of [MODS Origin] AWP was a closer control and communication between the Control Team and Fabrication team, where all constraints highlighted by fabrication in the war-rooms could be brought to the other departments of the project such Materials and QC, shortening the lead time taken by different departments to close their outstanding activities and releasing the work front to fabrication.”


Features and benefits of MODS Origin Construct (the AWP system) include:

  • 3D model-driven AWP process
  • Fully customizable and scalable to suit any project Total Installed Cost (TIC)
  • Predecessor and successor work packs can be assigned, with progress of each identified
  • Interactive dashboards
  • 3D schedule can be created and updated
  • Person-hours tracking
  • Latest drawings automatically attached to packages
  • 3D model snapshots easily attached, ensuring easy communication with subcontractors


JGC received the 2022 AWP Project Award for the LNG Canada Project at the North America AWP Conference in Houston, Texas on October 17, 2022. This global event was sponsored by the Construction Industry Institute (CII), the Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA) and the European Construction Institute (ECI).




Jon Bell pays tribute to the digital partnership that won this coveted AWP Large Project Award:


“This award is a testament to the successful partnership and digital construction applications that JGC and MODS have developed together over the years, which both the JGC and MODS DX teams have worked hard to develop, deploy and support. Thank you to everyone involved.”
