Value engineering exercises are a vital element that helps understand the long-term costs of a project, and to make architecture more efficient, effective, and economical without sacrificing the quality or intent of the design.
Our professional team and project-cost personnel are all experienced in value engineering techniques. They work closely on the project with our clients, consultants, and contractors, regularly conducting value engineering activities throughout a project to identify and implement cost-saving solutions.
The value engineering process generally comprises the following activities:
- Project data gathering
- Analysis of function, systems, and design
- Generation of ideas for alternative design solutions
- Evaluation of alternatives concerning cost, reliability, and availability
- Development of preferred solutions
- Recommendations for implementation
Estimations and Quantity Surveying
We employ reliable quantity- and cost-measurement techniques based on up-to-date construction industry data. This process establishes initial project construction budgets for client review and approval and allows for benchmarking and cost control throughout all phases of project development and construction, including:
- Estimation of construction costs at project initiation and key design milestones. These successive estimates give owners a reliable pre-construction cost estimate based on measured quantities and current market rates for individual work items.
- Analysis of contractors’ commercial tenders for construction. As part of project construction tendering, received proposals are benchmarked against pre-construction cost estimates to optimize project construction cost while remaining consistent with technical compliance.
- Monitoring and reporting of project implementation costs throughout the construction period, including review and evaluation of change orders and contractors’ claims for additional work. Cost reports are compiled and issued to the owner at regular intervals during the construction period.
- Evaluation of contractor’s interim payment applications and certification of the value of work executed, as well as the determination of final accounts upon completion of the construction contract.
Tendering, and Contract Support
Our Experienced professional team considers it a privilege to work with our clients. By providing oversight and guidance of the Construction Tendering process, we help clients reduce their risks and keep projects on time, on budget, and par with the highest quality of craftsmanship., Only the most qualified contractors are awarded contracts according to terms that are favorable to all parties.
SAS Future, Tendering services include:
- Conducting pre-qualification questionnaires and interviews of sub-contractors, suppliers to ensure that only the most qualified contractors and suppliers are invited to tender for the construction of a project.
- Providing pre-qualified contractors with all documents necessary for tendering, including Instructions to Tenderers, Form of Tender, Form of Contract Agreement, and Conditions of Contract, in addition to the design drawings, specifications, schedules, and bills of quantities that define the project scope of work.
- Convening of tender explanation meetings with contractors and responding to their queries as necessary.
- Technical and commercial evaluations of tenders received.
- Contract negotiation with selected contractors.
- Assisting project owners in the final award of contracts.
Change Orders Management
Change orders are a foreseeable part of the construction process, and while it’s not always possible to avoid them from happening, you can make sure you are prepared to price or validate them when/if they arise. Whether you are a client, consultant, contractor, or subcontractor, SAS Future Engineering can analyze requested and proposed change orders throughout a project’s duration.
Disputes and Arbitration
SAS Future has experienced lawyers who handle civil trial matters in related courts and arbitration and mediation proceedings. Their experiences include national and international construction-related litigation, disputes, and arbitration representing clients, consultants, developers, contractors.
