Bee Consult understands that our clients demand a cost effective delivered product. Defining what is cost effective for a particular project is a critical decision as there’s no typical project; each has its different objectives. Some projects require a low initial cost; others require a design with the lowest operating & maintenance costs.
Depending on the investment & ownership it maybe the building with the longest life period that is the most important, or it could be a facility which ensures that the users are their most creative. Or it could be as simplistic as the building that offers the greatest return on investment.
While an economically efficient project is likely to have one or more of these attributes, it is impossible to summarise cost-effectiveness by a single parameter. Determining true cost-effectiveness requires a life-cycle perspective where all costs and benefits of a given project are evaluated and compared over its economic life.
In economic terms, a building design is deemed to be cost-effective if it results in benefits equal to those of alternative designs & has a lower whole life cost, or total cost of ownership. Components of the whole life cost include the initial design & construction cost, on-going operations & maintenance & of course the useful life of the system or building.
It’s also no longer good enough for a building to simply ‘work’. They have to be energy efficient, conducive to a productive work environment, comfortable, affordable to construct & operate & fit for the purpose for which they are intended.
Bee Consult considers all of these aspects by adopting a holistic approach through working with the customer & designer, directed under our leadership; also where possible we ensure that the designer implements the latest BIM solutions creating & using intelligent 3D models to inform & communicate project decisions to provide greater clarity for all stakeholders across the project lifecycle.
