Value Engineering

Maximize value in your next project with an ACP Value Engineered solution.

ACP is experienced in finding alternative solutions that offer your projects the same functionality and quality at a better value.

We call it Value Engineering.

See how ACP can save you time and money on your projects without sacrificing quality or functionality.

The Value Engineering process can be described in these steps:

  • Identify the function of a product or service
  • Establish a worth for that function
  • Generate alternatives that meet the current design codes through creative thinking
  • Provide the needed functions reliably at the lowest overall cost
  • Prepare a Value Engineered alternative proposal

The Value Engineering proposal will be looking for the optimum blend of scheduling, performance, constructability, environmental awareness, safety and cost savings.

Value Engineering can be achieved in any number ways:

  • It could be the decision to choose a buried metal bridge instead of a concrete structure
  • It could also be reducing the polymer-coated areas of a buried metal bridge to only the most vulnerable areas. It could be formulating a specifically engineered backfill from a local source, when quarries are too far away
  • Or, it could even be adding MSE soil reinforcement to a buried structure’s beveled ends to save time and money by eliminating the need for concrete collars or false-work interior bracing during backfill

Merger of Australian Construction Products and Safe Direction

We are delighted to announce the merger of Safe Direction Pty Ltd and Australian Construction Products Pty Ltd (ACP).
On 1 May 2023 Jaybro, Australia’s leading supplier to the civil construction and infrastructure sector, and owner of ACP, purchased 100% of the share capital of Safe Direction. Under Jaybro’s ownership the two businesses will be merged to form Australia’s preeminent company manufacturing and supplying vehicle barrier systems.

A compelling motivation for the merger is the value created for our customers from combining the collective resources and knowledge of the two companies. Notably there will be significant broadening of the product range and enhancement to distribution reach and capacity. There will be transitionary steps as the two businesses assemble under the one entity, Safe Direction. Part of this transition includes the consolidation of the products and services offered by the merged business into a single web domain

We trust that this merger will provide increased value to you and we look forward to the opportunity to be of assistance.
