Power facilities include power plants that generate electricity for commercial sale, as well as smaller plants that may exist within industrial facilities. Power can be generated in a number of ways: burning coal, nuclear reactors, wind turbines, natural gas, capturing solar energy, harnessing geothermal energy, hydroelectrically, utilizing integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology, or other methods.

In the United States, most commercial power is developed by burning coal and/or natural gas. Traditional coal-fired plants are typically pulverized coal, supercritical pulverized coal, or circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers; while newer and more expensive technologies, such as IGCC, are gaining momentum with the push to develop clean coal technologies. Natural-gas-fired units typically include gas-fired combustion turbines (simple cycle) and may also include heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) and steam turbines to generate additional power in a combined cycle mode of operation.

The proliferation of digital devices and population growth has led to continued increase in demand for electricity. This, combined with aging facilities and regulatory changes, has contributed to the consistent need for the construction of new power generation facilities. Interface Consulting has provided litigation and claims consulting services, as well as other construction advisory services on numerous power projects, such as a nuclear plant and natural-gas-fired combined cycle plants in Texas, various combined cycle and cogeneration facilities worldwide, a boiler project in Aruba, and a wind farm development in Texas.
