Value Engineering Alternatives
Alternative designs and value engineering are fundamental principles of the way Pritchard Francis approach projects. With nearly 40 years in the Western Australian building industry, Pritchard Francis has a strong reputation in assessing alternative design methods or reviewing other engineering designs to provide alternative building designs that can be cheaper, quicker or easier to build.
Similar projects often require differing solutions. Understanding local ground conditions, subtleties within the construction industry and the fluctuation in costs of materials and trades results in a higher likelihood of developing the right engineering solution for each project. Economical and efficient design can have significant impact on the bottom line, particularly with repetitive clients.
Through value engineering alternatives, Pritchard Francis often realise project savings well beyond the total fees charged. A significant percentage of the work undertaken by the firm qualifies for research and development tax exemption through an innovative approach and the unique solutions developed.
