One way we achieve this is by offering clients the in-house service of value analysis/value engineering (VA/VE). Through VA/VE, we identified $545 million in possible savings for clients in 2012. That’s 480 percent more than our annual benchmark.

PROVIDING A HOME AWAY FROM HOME A studentâ€™s residence needs to accommodate their basic day-to-day needs as well as encourage and cultivate an extended learning environment. Our extensive experience constructing customized dormitories ensures a sophisticated, innovative and flexible space where students can succeed both in the classroom and in their everyday life. MODULARIZATION IS KEY Walbridge utilizes off-site prefabrication and modularization as a potential cost savings when building dormitories due to the repetitious nature of the facility. Modularization allows the end user to see first hand what has been designed as well as if there are any constructability issues that need to be resolved before construction begins. LESSENING THE IMPACT We understand the importance of sustaining a learning environment for both students and faculty. We make it a priority to minimize disruption on campus as much as possible by working around the clientâ€™s schedule, not ours.
