Value engineering for us is an ongoing, continuous approach, implemented on all our projects.
The facade design is constantly evaluated for efficiency, ease of procurement, standardization, rationalization. Different options and modifications are highlighted and implemented on-the-go to enable the best possible budget fit without compromising the architectural aesthetics or performance. We carry out intense coordination with other disciplines during detail design stage to ensure a resulting well coordinated package. The key is early implementation.
We also frequently peer review or third party review completed designs to assess further options and improvements for consideration. This exercise aims increased coordination, better budget fit, confident code compliance, optimized design. Savings can materialize in cost, time, ease of construction, increased performance and higher end user satisfaction.
