Management of the design stage, whether during project inception or re-design during the construction phase, requires experienced coordination within key disciplines. Whether the design incorporates Structural, Architectural or MEPF related elements, JCL International Design Management has the key resources at its disposal to provide the best solutions for clients.
JCL International recognizes the close relationship between design and construction. As such, the Design Management process treats these disciplines as an integrated system. Planning for both design and construction proceed simultaneously, examining various alternatives which are desirable from both viewpoints and thus eliminating the necessity of extensive revisions.
Incorporated into design management process is a value engineering review. The value engineering review identifies any unnecessary costs in design and construction, by proposing alternative design or construction technology to reduce costs without sacrificing quality or performance requirements. JCL International design teams coordinate extensive design assessments, for which alternative design systems are then evaluated and any cost efficient alternatives put forward for proposal.
Where the design incorporates highly sophisticated operational systems, the design assessment will evaluate operational, general maintenance and energy cost savings as well as environmental benefits. This systems evaluation is normally carried out during the design and budget development stage.
Comprehensive and detailed management means JCL International can achieve full integration of design and construction while ensuring that the intent remains intact, within budget and is prepared according to the project program.
