In April 2019, a number of Omnium International’s team attended the Value Engineering Summit at the Oberoi Hotel Business Bay, Dubai. The VE Summit, run annually, aims to deliver to delegates a clear understanding about what Value Engineering entails, how it can be implemented and address key issues and topics through a series of dialogues, offering professionals an opportunity to discuss, debate and define the solutions Value Engineering can offer a business.
With significant project experience, cost planning and benchmarking expertise, Omnium International was delighted to be involved with the Value Engineering Summit for 2019. Key team members, each benefiting from years of hands-on value engineering experience, took part in a presentation and two panel discussions during the day-long Summit.
Fernando Freitas showcased Omnium International’s knowledge, presenting his experiences of value engineering and his thoughts regarding the ‘Misconception of Value’ – in particular, how ‘value’ and ‘cost’ must be distinguished – at the event.
Our panellists included Nicholas Harris, Omnium International’s Managing Director, who discussed his thoughts on ‘Are Design and Build Contracts the Future of Cost Effective Construction in the Middle East?’ and our Senior Quantity Surveyor Ben Russell was a panellist for the discussion on ‘Utilising Technology and Software During the VE Process’.
