About Us

A message from our sponsors

It’s everyone’s least favourite part of the project – the value engineering phase. When general contractors and project owners turn to finding ways to save cost while preserving specs, we often feel the squeeze. But there’s a difference between the way it is supposed to work and how it gets implemented when people are just looking to save costs without regard for other considerations. And, surprisingly, tightening sustainability standards might create an environment where there’s less pressure for us to sharpen pencils. Geoff Shellard has been advising on and supplying glazing projects for a long time and is well positioned to comment and give some tips and tricks on how to navigate the world of value engineering. And there’s a special bonus at the end of this one for anyone who makes it all the way through!
