Developers who rely on merely comparing upfront material costs when determining budget savings can easily miss the big picture—leading to a less-than-successful result once the property is developed. To determine true cost savings, it’s important to evaluate holistically: looking for savings everywhere from materials to labor to schedules and more. For the team developing Liberty Creek Village, a multi-family apartment community, one of the greatest sources of overall budget savings came from a material with a higher initial price point that reaped bigger time and labor savings overall.
The first plan isn’t always the best. That’s what the development team behind the new Sur Club multifamily project has come to know. But with some foresight, a little extra research, and willingness to improve, you can make the best plan into a completed success. This was the case when the contracting team at Capstone Building Corporation decided to substitute for a better, integrated sheathing with a water resistive barrier and air barrier on a luxury multifamily job and wound up saving a lot of time and budget in the process.
