What is Value Engineering (VE) ? It begins by working closely with the Architect, Builder, and Homeowner as your window & door liaison utilizing our knowledge and experience. VE is a solution based service we provide on every job designed to uncover needs, wants, and desires while achieving budget. Our sales consultants are trained to methodically read plans, evaluate design & construction needs, ascertain budget requirements, ascertain code and product functionality, and provide value added product solutions. The ABSi VE service is a systematic and organized approach to provide the necessary features and product on a project at the best possible value. Value engineering promotes the exchange of features with alternatives, without sacrificing functionality, design integrity, or construction integrity. VE alternates generally increase value, increase curb appeal, enhance design elements and aesthetics, attain budget, and provide equal or better performance. ABSi does all of this not just to quote a job, but to sell the job correctly. It generally requires a substantial investment of intellectual property and valuable time, but the reward of a satisfied customer is well worth it. Your peace of mind in knowing your getting what you paid for is important to us.
Summarized; Value engineering is when a set of construction drawings or plans are given to a ABSi window & door consultant and based on vast knowledge and experience they suggest alternate window & door features or products than what is shown on the design drawings in an effort to increase value and functionality with the goal of having an end product that doesn't violate design integrity and is 'as good as if not more valuable' than what was designed in the first place. Also called value analysis.
