Peer Review

Of value to any project from a cost and quality control aspect are peer review services. The Holder Group advocates and advises its clients to take advantage of the option for a second set of eyes on the design and detailing of construction documents in some instances.

During this process, value engineering alternatives are frequently discussed and offered as options to the client. The Holder Group would recommend the following components be incorporated into a Peer Review:
