A systematic, organized approach to providing necessary functions in a project at the lowest cost. Value engineering promotes the substitution of materials and methods with less expensive alternatives, without sacrificing functionality.
It is focused solely on the functions of various components and materials, rather than their physical attributes.
We believe that one of our most important functions as your construction advisor is evaluating your material options to save you money without sacrificing quality on your construction project. This should not be confused with cost-cutting, which is simply supplying less product or substituting a lower cost, lesser quality product. We work hand in hand with your architects and engineers to address construction means and methods up front during the design process. Often, there are more efficient ways to make the cake or different lower cost materials which accomplish the same goal.
Over the years, we have had the pleasure of working with many great architects and engineers and have a great relationship with some of the best in the business. We are happy to connect you with the one that fits you and your project best. Many of our clients come to us with their project conceptions and no paper plans. We help get the picture out of your head and down on paper! Once that happens, we go to work establishing prices and a budget for your project. This is just one piece of the many services we provide to make your goals a reality, and further the legacy of your farm business.
