We use value engineering not only as a tool to reduce costs while maintaining value but as a way to determine the best solution for our customer to achieve quality, reliability and maintainability at the lowest possible price. We are able to provide suggestions that will bring cost and environmental savings not only for our customer but for the whole project as well.
Example cases of value engineering which brought our customers considerable savings:
Case 1: Smoke extraction system of a cruise ship’s main dining room (7300 m2)
* The yard’s, the AC-system supplier’s and the architect’s solution was 8 pieces of smoke extraction hatches. This seemed to be complex, large and heavy, technically difficult and expensive to execute.
* Our team suggested using air deflectors and grids which improved the quality and guaranteed to stay on building schedule. This brought cost savings of over 90% compared to the original system – the cost savings for the client were more than the invoiced amount.
Case 2: Design of prefabricated piping modules for cruise ships cabin corridors
* 30% faster installation work
* 25% faster pipe clamping
* Higher quality:
- no leaks at joints
- more efficient logistics and material management
- no schedule delays
* Less work on site:
- 1800 pcs of pipe joint work done at workshop
* Cost savings: 85.000,00€
- 30% savings compared to normal piping work
