A/E Support Services

Our team understands that when providing constructability review services, it is important to build the project by way of going through the construction process methodically. Various systems that interface with the project are fully reviewed and analyzed to make sure they are in line with the design intent.

Our Constructability Review exercise will normally start during the design phase of a project so that the review comments may be incorporated in the design documents prior to bidding the project.

KUMI has the capacity to assist the A/E team with reviewing bid documents for a wide variety of construction projects. On a typical project, we will review various bid documents that include, but are not limited to the following; bidding requirements, bid security, performance bonds, award or rejection of bids, post-bid information, proposals, substitutions and interpretations.

Value Engineering

KUMI conducts Value Engineering (VE) studies on construction projects to develop creative alternatives for possible project improvements.

The VE study is facilitated by a certified value specialist (CVS). The team follows the Society of American Value Engineer’s (SAVE) Five-Step VE Job Plan which is an organized approach that help experts analyze a design and understand the purpose and function of a facility.
