Hookway believes that value engineering should be more than a simple cost reduction exercise. All elements and functions are continually reviewed as design progresses to highlight potential areas for consideration.

Options can generally be either a cost reduction (a less expensive product that may or may not be of similar quality to the originally specified), value added item (a higher quality item that brings additional advantages to the project), life cycle advantage (an item that has a better balance of capital cost and overall operational cost) and finally maintainability (items that incur a reduced overall maintenance cost).

Larger value or complex projects will often benefit from implementation of a structured value management strategy. The ultimate need and client brief are examined from a function based perspective to enable the various possible options to be reviewed and analysed to enable our clients to make informed decisions on the overall best value method of achieving their aims.

 

 

 

 

 

Testimonial

“We have just had two new class rooms constructed for our school and Hookway managed the whole project, which really took the pressure off me. They were brilliant, managing the contractors and making sure that we were all kept fully informed as the project progressed, with all updates given in a timely manner.”
