Fit for purpose design saves construction costs

To use fit-for-purpose design and construction, you must be brave. You must work with your Client early on to establish shared specific goals and milestones for the delivery of the project: Proper incentives for cost savings as well as for achieving on-time (or earlier) project delivery are also essential. A safe project must be the overarching priority. As the engineer you must also: · Work closely with your Client (akin to a partnership); · Build a high performance team; · Always engineer with the end user needs in mind; · Scour the globe for the best fit standards; and · Source best fit materials and contractors. In this manner you can build a “fit for purpose” railway that cuts the costs.
