Value engineering is a collaborative, systematic approach to analysing all aspects of a project to maximise value engineering can be done at any stage of a project, however its value is greatest when applied during the early phases of a project, such as pre-feasibility phase.
Value Engineering is investment value. It identifies capital or operating costs that can be removed while maintaining or improving a project’s functionality, quality and performance.
At Arche, we prefer to start with a value engineering workshop. It brings the team together from kick-off and focusses everyone on building the right project.
Our value engineering workshops are facilitated by an engineer at Principal or Director level who is supported by a second engineer with an independent view on the project.
Arche Energy offers a fixed price value engineering workshop service that will get your project started on its journey started.
For energy and carbon reduction drivers, we also offer a fixed price energy and carbon reduction review.

When defining the business drivers for the project we investigate:
This process gets you started and sets an agenda for further analysis and development of concepts during the pre-feasibility study or subsequent stages if the project is in a later stage of development or if the facility is in operation.
Arche Energy creates a workshop environment that fosters creativity, preferably away from the office.
There is nothing like a couple of days away at a luxury retreat to get the creative juices flowing.
When implementing our workshops, we reward creativity and prefer to do our workshop face to face as it fosters collaboration.
We also believe in building a sense of teamwork and trust as value engineering is not a critique nor an opportunity to prove that you are the smartest person in the room.
This is why it is important assume that those who developed the concept design were intelligent and competent but likely had a limited budget or a slightly different project brief when they prepared the concept study.
We also focus on value and business outcomes including emissions reductions and risk reductions.
