value engineering

Whether it is a one-off or a framework, we believe that we can deliver enhanced value to your project through our creativity, intelligence and rigour. From the outset, our thoughts are trained on what value means to you, whether lower capital or operational costs, or a faster programme. Whatever your needs, we have the skills and experience to create value throughout the life of the project, from development to delivery.

  •  Design appraisals. Our in-house design team’s analysis ensures buildability, maximising commercial viability and enhancing the quality of the end-product.
  • Alternative designs and cost targets. Our collaborative process gives you options when finalising your requirements, optimizing the success of the process and the finished building.
  • Efficient processes. By working closely with you, with advisors, and with our supply chain partners, our team can determine how best to deliver the project and achieve your goals.
  • Proven track record. We have been implementing value creation for more than ten years and now have trained specialists throughout our business.
