Customer Webinar-Value Engineering and Aluminum Extrusions: Preserving Your Intent

AEC will be presenting a webinar for building & construction professionals hosted by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI). This webinar will explore how the architect or specifier can best manage the value engineering process to ensure that critical performance of extruded aluminum elements is retained.

Whether it comes post-bid in an effort to get the project under budget, or early in the design-build process, value engineering is rarely greeted with enthusiasm. Today, value engineering generally translates into cost reduction and the resulting question is “what performance was given up?” in the process.

This webinar will explore how the architect or specifier can best manage the value engineering process to ensure that critical performance of extruded aluminum elements is retained. Whether specifying bespoke elements specific to the project – a decorative canopy for example -- or pre-designed components – like entry doors – there are cost trade-offs that can be made without significantly compromising performance.

The webinar will outline typical applications for extruded aluminum components in commercial properties, the decisions regarding materials, configurations, and finishes that can impact cost and performance, and the trade-offs that should be considered by the specifier to achieve the desired building design and performance.
