We have value engineered large numbers of construction projects that have been designed by others and have returned from tender significantly over budget.
Projects can be placed into cost difficulties by over engineering, building in unnecessary design margins, and single tracking with favoured suppliers.
Design and build contractors having the lowest bid but over budget are usual customers for this service where they are faced with the task of reducing the cost conditional on being awarded the contract.
Any client or contractor can be faced with not understanding engineering of complex systems and therefore associated cost.
We are experienced in analysing existing designs and substituting simpler solutions which is the key to value engineering.
Value engineering is not about cutting corners or going for cheap, it is about identifying over engineering which can be general or hidden within technical detail.
