Important building details are developed long before construction begins on a facility. Having a construction manager on board early on can make a huge difference in the success of a project. A collaborative team can help make the necessary decisions about the project’s design intent, schedule, budget, materials and more. A strong pre-construction plan will set the tone for the entire project. Let MCM help you build the best facility right from the start.
Value Engineering (VE) involves three initial questions: (1) What is the item’s function, (2) what does the item cost, and (3) are there other ways of performing the function at the same or a reduced cost?
Since 1983 MCM’s Value Engineering services have helped clients save a substantial sum per project; lowering construction costs and providing a larger return on their investment. But the value methodology isn’t just about reducing unnecessary costs. It’s a consensus-building, problem-solving tool that improves organizational decision making and productivity
Building Information Modeling
|BIM is a useful tool we offer our clients in order to assess conflicts and develop potential value engineering and constructability solutions early in the process. We have in-house personnel trained in the latest software, who can fully develop a 3D model of your project to help visualize how it will be built, including the sequence of construction, resources and schedule required.||
