Benefits To Client

  • Value Engineering: Doig+Smith successfully managed the process of value engineering that was necessary to achieve the level of savings that the client required in order for the project to be viable. The value management continued throughout the project as requirements changed due to client changes and the requests imposed by potential tenants.
  • Cost Management: Cost management, change control and value engineering/management are vital from the outset to ensure the budget is constantly monitored and adjusted to suit client needs. By successfully controlling and understanding the costs on this project Doig+Smith were able to quickly adjust budgets and advise on value engineering options. This was also extended to tenant fit-out costs whereby a rapid understanding of tenant needs and the costs in association were required to deliver within a constrained timescale.
