Value Engineering

Making best use of your budget saves time and money. Once an initial estimate is established, we continue to analyze costs and monitor the budget, working with our clients to reduce the need for redesign and other costly adjustments. Our process ensures immediate and long-term costs are minimized, while value is maximized.

 

Quick Turnaround Time

Missed deadlines mean missed opportunities. We take great care to respect client and project schedules. We can proudly state that we've never missed a deadline - and we intend to keep it that way.

 

Personalized Attention

Every client has specific needs. With a hands-on approach, we work closely with designers and contractors to ensure every possibility is considered, every question is answered, and every detail is accounted for.


We believe every project deserves the best.

Industry Expertise

First-hand experience adds value. As a general contractor for nearly four decades, our owner and principal estimator Michael J Lewis understands all aspects of the building process, which allows us to provide a realistic perspective of the issues that can present themselves during construction – and deal with them long before contruction starts.

Consistent Accuracy         

Accuracy is key. At AC&E, that's defined as being within 7% of the lowest bid and 5% of the highest bid for any given project. Over the past 35 years, we’re proud to have consistently provided this level of accuracy – by understanding both our clients’ needs and the current market conditions.

State-of-the-Art Analysis

Customized software offers customized results. At AC&E, we created proprietary software that quickly and accurately analyzes design and construction specifications down to the smallest detail. We use this data to determine the effect every revision will have on our clients’ bottom lines.

Independent, Factual Reports

Numbers don’t lie. That’s why we provide factual cost estimates without cutting corners and without being influenced by individuals or organizations that may have a stake in the project. Estimating with integrity is a very high priority.

Customized Reporting

Custom software offers tailored results. At AC&E, we employ our own proprietary software that quickly and accurately analyzes design and construction specifications down to the smallest detail. We use this data to provide our clients with the information they need to get the job done, right.
