Each project is managed by one of the firm’s principals with particular attention to project management as well as quality design with value engineering in mind.

Cost control:

——————————————————————————————————
The traditional procedure of first completing all engineering and architectural design work and then obtaining estimates or contract bids often results in the final contract price exceeding the appropriation.
However, from thorough and continuous analytical investigation of the building market, “GM Engineering Ltd” has developed a value engineering system by which costs can be controlled during the preparation of design and bid documents, thus maintaining the established budget for the project. From the initial directions stating the Owner’s requirements, preliminary designs and outline specifications are developed.

Employing data obtained through experience, from precedent, analysis of market trends, and prevailing local prices, a substantial accurate estimate of the final cost of the work is projected. From this point on the system follows a procedure of continuous budget analysis recording each item that is added to, altered, or omitted from the project until completion. Most of the guesswork is therefore eliminated.

With the success of this cost control system proven on many projects, “GM Engineering Ltd” proceeds with confidence in the approach to the design of projects, which must be constructed within given budget.
