BASE performed value engineering on this 38-story residential project to optimize the shear wall layout, reducing encroachment of walls into unit layouts and creating additional sellable space. Value engineering identified $1.3 million in potential savings and helped lead to a revised layout of the structure’s lateral load resisting elements to increase the sellable floor area, providing the potential for an additional $500,000 in sales revenue.
