CASE STUDY

CASE STUDY 1
 

We proposed a superior cladding system yet managed to:

  • Reduce the project cost by $1,000,000

  • Improve the fire performance rating

  • Improve the schedule by 535 man days

  • Increase floor space inside the building module

  • Reduce construction risk

 
 
CASE STUDY 2

By proposing a revolutionary alternative to a pre-engineered metal building we:

  • Reduced the previous bid cost by a massive 63%

  • Took $6,000,000 off the previous budget price

  • Accelerated the construction schedule by an incredible 75%

  • Eliminated the requirement for piled foundations

  • Provided a higher environmentally performing building.

  • Improved the safety on the construction site

CASE STUDY 3 

We reviewed a Central Control Building that was designed by industry leading control room specialists. Using 5 key design strategies we provided an alternative optimized layout which resulted in a 22% reduction in price over the original concept. We brought together rooms that had a close functional relationships, reduced wasted space and in a design charrette the project team and operators stated we had:

  • Provided a more functional building layout 

  • Enhanced worker efficiency and communication

  • Improved the IT cable routing and reduced building service runs

  • Provided better worker collaboration

  • And had managed to do this whilst saving over $10 MILLION

CASE STUDY 4

Using the exact same design optimisation techniques Hilton had used on the Control Building to reduce costs, he managed to redesign an Administration, Workshop and Warehouse Complex and save an incredible $45,000,000.

This was whilst preparing competitive bid against a rival EPC firm on a FEED design, giving the Engineering firm he was working for a huge competitive edge

CASE STUDY 5

By knowing the which part of the building code to apply Hilton knew it was safe and permissible to eliminate a sprinkler system that was adding $500,000 extra cost to the buildings.  Not only did this reduce the capital cost, it reduced the 

  • Time spent designing and engineering the system

  • Eliminated the underground water supply line to the buildings 

  • Reduced construction time installing an unnecessary system

  • Eliminated the operating expenditure for regular maintenance, inspection and annual certification

 
CASE STUDY 6

Do you know when it's most economical to design a single storey or a double storey building? It's not always the same answer.  For one client Hilton's decision to change the design from a single to a double storey resulted in $1,200,000 savings.

CASE STUDY 7

Whilst reviewing the technical aspects of bid proposal for a substation package, Hilton went beyond his scope and reviewed the commercial section too. He discovered something that all other departments had overlooked. The Vendor had accidentally duplicated design hours resulting in an overcharge of 1500 man hours which worked out to be $180,000.
