Value engineering begins with getting to know you and your project. Often with plan and spec projects, the optimal system has not been designed to accommodate both initial building and life cycle costs.
Value engineering means finding the ideal balance between upfront and operational costs. Spending more during the construction process may save you money in the long run. This is something that can easily be determined and optimized during the planning and development phase.
Altogether value engineering:
Provides hassle-free maintenance and fewer repairs. Better construction means longer lasting systems that are specially designed to meet the demands of your building. You can experience the difference of cutting-edge technology and reliable operations that don’t require constant repairs, which means you can also avoid unnecessary downtime.
Reduces your carbon footprint. Installing more energy efficient systems not only cuts down on utility costs and provides a more comfortable environment for workers, it also helps to protect resources and reduce pollution. Value engineering can optimize these features and help your building serve as an example to others.
Establishes clear expectations. The information gathering step of the process helps to foster communication and ensure that everyone is on the same page moving forward. A clear vision of goals and criteria is essential to any successful project.
Lowers cost and better results. A focus on value over cost means that each project will provide maximum functionality for the money invested. Your budget will go further and you will enjoy customized solutions instead of one-size-fits-all systems that may not directly address the challenges of your building or your project goals.
Our engineers consider initial cost, operational costs and the expected life of the system in order to provide the greatest overall value to each customer.
