Value Engineering

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 to the greater economy by identifying, developing, and implementing alternatives for the design, construction, and operation of a facility that best suits 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.

Sunland has Certified Value Specialists (CVS) and Value Methodology Associates (VMA) who work with experienced architects, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers, plumbing specialists, estimators, schedulers, construction managers, inspectors, and administrators, all with practical experience working on large and small design and construction projects. Our team has conducted numerous value engineering studies for both small projects with quick turnaround times and large, complex projects that require extensive analysis and development.
