Our contracts are typically a "cost-plus" format which requires a lot of trust from all parties involved. We deliver value from the initial planning stage but also strive for constant value engineering through the project. This is an example where the plans called for a specific pocket door track and roller for every location. After we finalized the door slab quotes we asked the supplier for door weight by location. Using this info we were able to propose appropriately rated tracks by location in the same high quality brand of hardware. This resulted in a total potential savings of $7,470...the client accepted the substitution.
