By supporting quantitative project creativity and decision-making, we’ve helped dozens of construction projects save money and maximize value.
Highest performance at the lowest cost
Many project teams experience uncertainty in determining the best possible approach to a problem. SMA’s value engineering process brings together multidisciplinary teams to develop creative, well-supported, and fully-documented solutions. We help you identify key functions of a project, generate ideas to deliver those functions, and evaluate those ideas through the lens of value: the ratio of function to cost.
While our process follows SAVE International’s standards, we have supplemented it with an array of advanced tools, techniques and academic research developed over the past two decades. This has enabled us to offer a more comprehensive service to project managers, and our integration of risk analysis with the value engineering process can also help ensure that the functions sought by the project directly address key uncertainties.
