Because the initial selection of construction materials and components is intrinsically linked to the cost of the asset throughout its life, our service focuses on helping the design team optimise the specification of components and systems used.
We tailor our services to address your specific requirements. Are you doing this to reduce your ongoing cost commitment, reduce energy usage or gain accreditation?
Depending upon your need, our dedicated consultants will help you set a base life cycle budget and as the design detail progresses, help design teams actively drive down costs measured against this.
The ability to change and influence reduces the further into the design stage you are, but even at a detailed design phase we can usually save in the order of 30% of the project’s life cycle costs. We can show how your asset compares against others, what you can do to improve, and help you demonstrate value for money.
And this service isn’t limited to new build projects, by uploading performance and condition information, our team can model scenarios of ‘do nothing’ against different intervention options.
By modelling the capital costs, operational and maintenance activities in the same system, we can clearly report the optimum solution (along with the capital investment needed and its future benefits) to stakeholders.
Efficiency is at the core of our service offering. We focus our efforts on the systems and components we know have the greatest potential for reduction, allowing us to spend time on the areas that give you the highest value.
