This beautiful facility contains the Girl Scouts’ administrative and meeting areas. This building was initially competitively bid in which George Allen Construction Co. was a low competitive bid. The project was about $500,000 to $600,000 over budget. George Allen Construction was able to successfully value engineer the project and bring it back into budget by removing half a million dollars worth of costs without changing the size and quality of the building. We presented about $1 million worth of value engineering options to the owners which allowed them to choose which options they wanted for the building, and George Allen Construction was able to build the facility without the excess cost.
