Omnibuild has experience in similar type projects which allows us to insert ourselves in the value engineering process. We typically involve our most sophisticated subcontractors for ideas on cost savings, schedule, as well as means and methods. Subcontractors understand current pricing on material and equipment, supply chain pitfalls and logistic challenges because they are in the trenches daily. Since Omnibuild is working on several major construction projects simultaneously we are aware of real-time data about trending costs on designs from structural to finishes.
Omnibuild also prefers the surgical approach to VE, not slashing and trashing to reduce costs while gutting a design that has its own unique worth. Again, with communication and professionalism, significant savings can be found by working with the design team, reaching consensus, and making cost reductions sensitively and judiciously.
