Due to recent events and the uncertainty of the COVID-19 shutdown, the economic impact has either reduced or ceased funding for many projects. At BHB, we are Building Partners, and we recognize the importance of communicating with owners and clients to understand their goals and needs in relation to how current events are affecting businesses. These projects are more than just components and materials, and we are ready and prepared to assist clients to create a strategy for how to best move forward.
From reducing project costs and maximizing efficiency, we are here to help tailor the scope of work and preserve the overall project strategy and goals, while cooperating with all stake holders to meet current demands. Our multi-disciplinary environment allows us to collaborate in-house with every service we offer to help fine tune project deliverables and reduce project costs.
“For developers and owners who want to move forward or don’t know how, BHB is here to help and we are prepared for the challenges,” said Ronald Ishmael, BHB Associate and Structural Engineer. “Because our firm offers multiple services, we are able to work together between MEP, civil, and structural to collaborate on where the cost savings can be and the best solution for each client and their needs.”
Recently, a client reached out to the firm seeking ways to reduce costs for a project. BHB proceeded with a preliminary plat utilizing a deed sketch of the property. Although the original scope consisted of providing a detailed boundary survey, this decision and new strategy is saving the client, at the moment, a significant amount of money.
“We’re ready to rethink, retool, and strategize the scope of work to meet immediate demands,” stated Trace Strevey, BHB Principal and Senior Civil Engineer. “There are ways to scale back so that project needs, deadlines, and commitments are still met.”
BHB is willing to go the extra mile and discuss options with the owner and make suggestions to keep the project on track. During this unprecedented time, we will be here as a resource for our community, clients, and developers who need help with creating strategies on how to best move forward with their projects. Per our philosophy, we are dedicated to making a positive difference. If you have any questions or could use our assistance, please email us and we would be happy to help.
