As the cost of construction continues to rise, there is an increasing incentive for agencies to utilize every means possible to complete design and construction projects within budget and the scheduled time frame. Value Engineering (VE) can make a significant contribution toward greater economy by identifying, developing, and implementing alternatives for design, construction, and operation of a facility that best suit the intended use over the entire life cycle of the facility. When used properly by experienced specialists, VE is a tool that can help management gain the desired results within the constraints of time and cost.
