Hera Engineering were engaged during the tender stage to perform a value engineering assessment on this project, which is one of the largest and most iconic developments in the South West region.
The design initiatives introduced by our team helped expedite and improve the project in a collection of ways, including:
- Preliminary erection engineering analysis and planning
- Simplified the construction process by reducing the site workforce
- Reduced number of piles to be used in the project which has been a great advantage due to poor site soil conditions.
- Removal of several internal columns which created open space plan which resulted in greater long term flexibility for the client
The above strategies have been implemented with success and have saved an estimated $1M I project costs thus far.
