Project Evaluation / Value Engineering
PROJECT EVALUATION / VALUE ENGINEERING
Project evaluation generally occurs post-design.
Value engineering is generally conducted pre-design or during the design process.
Over-design of structural engineering elements by some practitioners is, unfortunately commonplace. A peer review
by an experienced structural engineer can identify whether a structure has in fact been over designed. Rickard Engineering’s strict adherence to economical design within its own practice provides it with the ability to audit the work of others leading if necessary, to recommendations on design amendment and cost minimisation.
Rickard Engineering, both with project evaluation and value engineering, works in conjunction with Robert Hart who has experience working with architects, engineers (in all disciplines), builders and developers.
