Value engineering at its best
Our review identified opportunities for a 55% cost saving, and our alternative design provided 95% of the project scope for £37 million.
Originally, the entire highway was to be dual carriageway but, after modelling traffic, we changed this to just 30% of the route.
Reducing earthworks helped avoid importing fill by 65% and we removed a 1km section of road which would have saved just two minutes in journey time but which would have cost £3 million.
Our role was completed in 12 months – it would normally take 30.
