For many, if not most, AEC projects today, value engineering (VE) has become a standard practice. However, VE is not always fully understood or properly executed as common as it is. Value engineering is not a process of design review. Nor is it a cost-cutting exercise at the expense of the integrity of the project. Designers should use VE to optimize the expected cost-value ratio of components within a project by considering alternative design solutions. Contractors should use VE to identify and propose changes that reduce costs while maintaining or improving the owner's required quality, value and functional performance.
However, value engineering is a creative, organized exercise that all project stakeholders carry out collaboratively-and as soon as possible-to meet project requirements at the lowest total cost when applied optimally. Progressive project owners are looking for partners who can meet their visions and deliver a project on time and on budget, and collaborative VE ensures that all parties work towards the same objective.
