A.E Yates - Design Feasibility


A E Yates Ltd are fully committed to the promotion of partnering & co-operative working with our clients, designers and our key Suppliers, and are keen to help clients and designers to arrive at innovative, sustainable, safe and value added civil engineering solutions.

A E Yates Ltd firmly believe in the principles and operation of effective Value Engineering and Risk Management, and that maximum opportunity comes from Early Contractor / Supplier Involvement in any project or programme of works.

ECI is advantageous to all parties to a contract, client, contractor, supply chain partners and the public. Problems and risks are identified and mitigating actions are developed prior to commencement on site, thus avoiding costs, delays, disputes or in some cases H&S or environmental incidents. Additionally, early value engineering allows the collective experience of all parties to be applied to the scheme and innovative ideas sought to improve scheme delivery.

Thus, through our recognised expertise and vast experience, we are regularly called upon by clients and designers to assist in early design and feasibility reviews of potential projects or to advise on problems. Our activities include:

  • Value Engineering Input / Meetings
  • Risk Evaluation (H&S, Environment, Cost, Time, etc)
  • Optioneering
  • Build-ability Reviews
  • Methods / Materials Reviews
  • Programme Implications
  • Budget Cost Estimates

If you feel that we can be of assistance at feasibility or design stage of any project please contact us via our contact page.
