Value Engineering

AABCO’s optimum value engineering

your savings in rebar & concrete

Get our value engineering services

and let our engineers provide you with economically viable solutions to your existing reinforced concrete designs
to generate substantial material and development savings.

In addition to our detailing and structural design expertise, our in-house software plays the key role
in achieving speed, accuracy and cost reductions.

Savings can be made by proposing alternatives to one or more of the following:

Structural system where the structural concept may change in parts or in the whole structure.

Structural system RC design where the concept is kept unchanged. The RC elements may be redesigned where savings are achieved by strict application of building code requirements and by minimizing the extra steel due to poor design tools. The savings can easily reach 20% of rebar in more than 80% of the cases and may reach 50% in some cases.

Rebar detailing where rebar typical details, lapping positions, lapping length, use of alternative equivalent steel distribution (bar spacing and diameters), use of couplers, and many other methods can achieve from 2% to 15% savings in steel.
