Value engineering in construction is not about cutting corners: it’s about creating opportunities to save costs and maximise value. Through our fire safety consultant expertise, we believe that these goals can sit comfortably alongside a clear and uncompromising emphasis on safety and we’ve proved that to be the case time and time again.

Why Choose FDS Consult for Value Engineering?

Our innovative approach to value engineering can help you save money on systems costs, build costs, design modifications and build programme. We don’t just look at what we can put into the building to make it safer, we also look at what we can take out and often that results in more saleable space, increasing the value of the scheme.

How do we do this?

We do this by thinking creatively about how best to enhance the building’s safety rather than adhering rigidly to code and by bringing in our fire specialist knowledge of best practice from around the world. That’s why we’re consistently able to justify increased travel distances, simplified ventilation systems and removal of expensive fire systems from the specification.

We understand that a building does not have to be more expensive in order to be safer. An innovative approach to fire engineering enables cost savings to be an integral part of the process. Some examples where we have used value engineering include: The removal of secondary staircases, the removal of sprinklers and the rationalisation of life safety systems. We are more than happy to offer advice on value engineering if you have any concerns about fire safety design. For more information about the projects we have worked on, visit out project showcase.
