Value Engineering

BC Flynn believes value engineering should be much more than simply an exercise to reduce project cost.  Our goal is to provide the project team with the information necessary to make decisions that will maximize the client's program requirements and budget constraints.
When presenting options to a client, our team categorizes each option according to our key considerations:

  • Cost Reduction - A less expensive alternative to a specified product or system, which may or may not include a difference in quality.
  • Value Added - A higher quality product that may or may not carry a higher price but will bring added value to the project.
  • Life-Cycle Analysis - During our review of products and systems, we typically identify options that will allow us to strike the proper balance between initial construction cost and long-term operational costs.
  • Maintainability - We review the building from the perspective of the owner's maintenance staff and recommend products that can produce long-term savings through reduced maintenance costs.
