Civil Engineering: Value Engineering

At MERCO, we approach value engineering as a holistic system, looking at the entire project and all of its components to ensure that your requirements for safety, quality and reliability are achieved at the lowest possible overall cost.

Collecting the Best Data
Your best solutions begin by using the best data. MERCO ensures that only meaningful data is collected because time spent collecting optimum information pays dividends throughout your project.


Providing Risk Management
We then provide risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, and risk management, evaluating alternatives such as technical feasibility and project worthiness, cost versus benefits plus future considerations, and possible pending regulatory requirements.


Accurately Assessing Costs
Our cost estimators supplement formal training with practical experience to augment published cost data. This gives them a keen insight into the numerous project-specific issues that may arise. We present you with an honest picture, complete with accurate estimates of production costs, realistic project schedules and a thorough constructability evaluation. You can minimize unexpected setbacks, project reassessments and late-term alternative substitutions, which results in instant cost savings and faster completions.
