THE VALUE OF OUR VALUE-ENGINEERING
In keeping with our history of seeking out innovative solutions to common stormwater problems that exceed regulatory requirements and lower total cost of compliance, we’ve identified and introduced to Texas a number of BMPs that can assist engineers in solving their project’s stormwater quality and stormwater quantity problems and drive down costs. Virtually all new projects, and most redevelopments, constructed today must account for the quantity and quality of the water leaving the site once construction is complete, and forever after. Compliance with these regulations is often confusing and it’s difficult to identify ideal Best Management Practices (BMPs) that will meet site constraints as well as budgetary goals.
The term value engineering often means you found a cheaper option, which many times equates to an inferior solution from the original engineered design. This is often a risky proposition as the contractor is looking to save or make money on a contract already rewarded and the designer is concerned with who assumes liability. At Construction EcoServices, we simply see this as cost cutting, because there is no true value in this transaction.
Our philosophy at CES has always been to lower total cost while raising overall compliance.
While we do have options in our repertoire that can cut costs, swapping one similar product for another is not what drives our business. Our mission is to be able to truly add value to the project through innovative water management strategies that do so in the form of decreasing stormwater volume necessary, improving water quality leaving the site, enhancing the aesthetics value of the site and doing so with the projects budget in mind.
CES brings value to value engineering.

Stormwater: Why Care?
Stormwater management may seem like a relatively new industry, but it has actually been around since the Roman times. They knew, even back then, that managing stormwater runoff was a key issue to urban living. With poor stormwater management, both flooding and disease constantly wreaked havoc in ancient cities.
Not much has changed since then, except now, with more and more of the earth being covered over with cement and other impervious surfaces, the negative effects of poor stormwater management have increased exponentially. Our natural water supplies are at risk due to pollution and their lack of ability to recharge. The flowing of our waterways are at risk from erosion, sediment build up, and trash. And, our marine life is at risk, from all the chemicals finding their way into bodies of water.
Some may see stormwater management as just another unnecessary and unwanted cost to construction projects or property ownership and management. But, understanding the negative effects that poor or no stormwater management is causing should be a concern to us all. It affects where we live and play. It affects our marine-based food supply. It affects our dwindling water supply.
We care. It is why we do what we do.
While the rest of the country focused on treating one inch of rainfall, we were pushing the limits and learning how to manage the largest storms by using Low Impact Development (LID) / Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) solutions. We believed that if we could develop LID / GSI solutions in a place like Houston Texas, we could make them work anywhere.
Not only have we succeeded, but we have the the data, the case studies, and the experiences to prove it.
Since 2005, the team at Construction EcoServices and it’s partners around the country have dedicated their work to both the big discoveries and the small, that have drastically improved the performance and reliability of Low Impact Development. Collectively, they have been compiled here on this site, so that you may take advantage of the knowledge that has come from our success and failures.
