What We Do.

Building Engineering Services

Luseo Group provides the full range of engineering services necessary to advance projects throughout the development life cycle - from initial feasibility through design, procurement, construction, and commissioning.
Our services include the following:


  • Project Feasibility
  • Constructability
  • Predesign Cost Estimation

Before the start of construction, a wide range of factors must come together to provide for a viable investment opportunity. These include land acquisition, master planning, financial feasibility, access to capital markets, and assembly of an experienced development team.

Because LUSEO Group understands the intricacies of the development cycle, we are routinely tasked with participating in initial due diligence for our Client’s projects. These activities include feasibility evaluations, opinions on the constructability of various engineering systems, and preliminary cost estimation (even ahead of commencement of full engineering design).

We routinely support our clients in asset programming, cost/benefit analysis of various solutions for a particular site, and identification of the highest and best use of owner capital. This capability extends into existing assets as well, where thorough groundwork is required to identify which engineering systems should be replaced versus those which are viable and can remain in place.

LUSEO Group is also extremely familiar with alternative project delivery methods including Design/Build, and we are selectively willing to go at risk with our Clients in order to pursue larger-scale project opportunities.

  • Quantity Takeoffs
  • Detailed Budgeting
  • Contract And Bid Administration
  • Value Engineering

LUSEO Group provides developer-friendly cost estimation services, ranging from simple quantity takeoffs on mechanical systems all the way up to detailed construction budgets for large-scale development endeavors. At the same time, we also provide value-engineering services in order to reduce development costs to match budgetary requirements. Firms that routinely use our cost estimation and value engineering capabilities include developers, architects, contractors, and consulting firms.

As architectural and engineering design work is completed, the development team is next faced with the challenge of awarding the work to one or more contractors. Because of our familiarity with multiple contracting methods (including Design/Bid/Build, Design/Build, and others) and our strong knowledge of the global construction industry, LUSEO Group is regularly asked to play an instrumental role in the award of our Clients’ projects. We provide due diligence on potential contractors, bid review and analysis, and contract review (including review of the important contract conditions which define financial exposure and risk). We can also play a role in purchase order review and expediting.


  • Project Management
  • Construction Administration

LUSEO Group was founded based on our ability to manage and deliver projects in logistically complex, technically-demanding locations. As such, we have developed construction management capabilities that far exceed typical engineering consulting firms.

Our onsite project management and construction administration capabilities are frequently utilized in design/build scenarios – wherein the developer relies on LUSEO Group to ensure that the technical delivery of engineering systems aligns with owner requirements. We deploy personnel with expertise in engineering, construction, finances, and project management to support on-the-ground development management teams.

LUSEO Group’s heavy involvement in construction yields our team with a few distinct advantages. Our engineering design is typically construction-ready, because we are able to address typical contractor issues during the design phase as opposed to during construction. Our cost estimation also tends to be far more accurate, because we are able to price projects in a similar manner to contractors – taking into account local market conditions, considering project-specific needs such as rigging costs, and understanding contractor profit and overhead requirements.


  • Commissioning
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Renovation

LUSEO Group understands that after construction is completed, an entirely new set of engineering challenges are manifested during building operations. As such, we have developed a series of services targeted at existing assets including commissioning and energy efficiency evaluations (including energy audits and thermal imaging). We support owners, asset managers, and building operators with the identification of operational enhancements and capital projects – relayed back to our clients in simple financial language that is understandable and actionable.

Our team also routinely provides engineering support for major building renovations. We understand the special challenges of working in existing structures, including the more detailed level of coordination required between architectural, interior design, engineering, and owner’s representatives to successfully reprogram building spaces.
