Whenever you plan a construction build, having a budget in mind is a critical part of the process. That’s why it’s so important to learn the art of value engineering. Simply put, value engineering is the process of assessing what you need and how to get it for the best price. This also might involve cutting costs in some areas to stay within budget to allocate funds to your non-negotiables. While value engineering may be a new term to you, it’s actually been around since World War II when building materials were limited at best — all because the war effort required most resources to be able to keep fighting.
Try these tips to get the most out of your value engineering process:
- Decide what you absolutely must have in your construction build.
- Be willing to let go of things that are draining your funds unnecessarily.
- A simple way to do this is to weigh function over cost for each variable.
