How To Minimize the Hidden Costs of Mechanical and Electrical Construction

The various costs of design and specification of mechanical and electrical systems may seem obvious. Every project owner must take into consideration space utilization, design costs, equipment costs, and installation costs. What most developers and owners often get surprised by are the HIDDEN costs that inevitably show up if they are not proactively prevented up front. The factors that typically are not taken into consideration are DELAYS and EXTRAS.

That’s where years of experience come in. Because of years of experience on a wide variety of projects and in all facets of a construction project we at Aquarius Consulting Group know where the pitfalls are. Being a great negotiator when it comes to dealing with contractors is critical to preventing unnecessary and unexpected costs due to delays not. Since we understand the contractors’ point of view and demands, we anticipate where they are coming from and ensure little room for them to maneuver in extras.

In our design we make sure that all the hatches are buttoned down. Our superior quality controlled design process and continual communications with our clients and contractors further ensures that we minimize any delays and “extras” saving our clients millions over the years.
