Design-Build & Value Engineering
With our extensive experience, engineering knowledge and understanding of expenses we take great pride in our ability to minimize the cost of the project, whether it be through the Design-Build process or through a Value Engineering proposal.
On Design-Build projects, not only are we involved in the design process from the beginning which allows us to explore different construction methods and materials to make the project more efficient and cost-effective, but we're also able to streamline the schedule by overlapping the design and construction phases, by reducing conflicts between the designer and contractor, and by reducing the approval cycle for submittals.
When it comes to Value Engineering, a request must be made to the design engineer to deviate from their plans in an attempt to provide the owner with a cost savings for a product of similar or higher quality. Because of this process, not all of our Value Engineering proposals are accepted - but when they are, owners are very pleased with our efforts. Recent Value Engineering projects include; substitution of a cast-in-place concrete bridge deck for a precast concrete bridge deck, providing new galvanized steel bridge girders in lieu of cleaning and painting existing girders, and providing stepped concrete footings to maintain a minimum scour protection level in lieu of the footings being constructed at a single grade.
