Jacob utilizes value engineering, a systematic, disciplined process of analyzing project requirements for the purpose of achieving the essential functions at the lowest total cost, thereby optimizing the value of each dollar spent. Our proprietary estimating software allows Jacob Companies to generate an accurate estimate on the costs of any particular project. We pride ourselves on utilizing our vast cost history to implement considerable cost savings without sacrificing the quality of the end product.
Value engineering will take place throughout the duration of a project. However, the earlier this process begins, the greater the benefit. By utilizing value engineering at the programming phase, Jacob can optimize the solution by incorporating the design elements into the project plan. Open collaboration among the Project Team throughout the value engineering process is critical to its success. It is our goal to become a valuable part of the construction team and to develop a strong, cooperative relationship with our clients.
