/ A History of Excellence
When the success of your project is on the line, knowing that your decisions are based on data and advisors that you can trust makes all the difference in the world.
/ Budget Development
Budgets that you can rely on to make well-informed decisions
How much will the project cost? It is the first and most important question to ask before investing the time and money required to transform a concept into a realized project. Answering it incorrectly at the concept phase will lead to cost overruns and time delays later down the road. KMI’s proactive project approach in preconstruction planning positions us to provide our clients with conceptual budgets that address the economic feasibility of their project from the outset.
Even if the project is still just an idea, without plans and specifications, KMI’s construction professionals have the construction cost estimating experience to provide you with the necessary Conceptual Budgets to make your plans achievable. We take pride in the fact that our Conceptual Budgets have accurate cost expectations from the early stages, which will help our clients make well-informed decisions for their project needs.
/ Value Engineering
Bringing the Greatest Overall Value, NOT Scope Reduction
Value Engineering (VE) is an organized effort to analyze systems, equipment, facilities, services, and supplies to achieve the essential functions at the lowest life cycle cost without altering the required performance, reliability, quality, and safety. KMI professionals use a structured approach to VE to optimize project value through design examination to achieve the greatest overall value.
Our Value Engineering process divides the total project’s scope of work into components, examining each individual component for alternatives that offer benefits in the areas of engineering design, equipment and material selection, construction, operations, and maintenance. Our recommendations are based on long-term return rather than solely on initial construction expense.
Value Engineering is not scope reduction or elimination. It should be carried out from the very early stages of a project, not simply introduced when cost problems occur. KMI’s Value Engineering Process will provide the best value for your construction investment.
