Estimating / Value Engineering
At the onset of each project request, we use our expert previous knowledge and experience to prepare initial rough order of magnitude (ROM) budgeting based on schematic designs through final project buy-out, including value engineering proposals. Through value engineering, we consider alternative design solutions to optimize the expected cost/worth ratio of projects at completion. As projects move forward, we further improve estimates as more information is obtained and requirements are more clearly defined.
Modular projects present very specific site logistic challenges, or, in most cases, opportunities. Having installed thousands of modular boxes over many decades, our staff will find the best way to get the building stacked, whether it’s a challenging urban infill site or a suburban lot with plenty of room. Coordinating modular box storage sites, shuttle services and crane logistics is all part of the logistic support we provide on every project.
Along with site logistics, modular projects present their own set of requirements in terms of the overall structural design of the building. By contributing our knowledge to the design process, our team can quickly identify design elements that may be costly or challenging. The modular solution can and should be a great advantage to every project. By lending our experience to the design team, we ensure the modular benefits and efficiencies are maximized. We encourage our clients to utilize our value added preconstruction services.
