  VALUE ENGINEERING
spacer
spacer spacer  
The goal of  Value Engineering (VE) Group is to achieve design excellence. Its objectives are to improve quality, minimize total ownership cost, reduce construction time, make the project easier to construct, insure safe operations, and assure environmental and ecological goals. The VE Team is looking for the optimum blend of scheduling, performance, constructability, maintainability, environmental awareness, safety, and cost consciousness.

The Value Engineering staff manages three areas where the Department may realize beneficial improvements:
  • -- perform pre-construction VE Design Studies utilizing all engineering disciplines in the investigation of project designs before construction letting.

  • -- coordinate and manage the participation of the construction contractor's submittal of beneficial VE Change Proposals after project letting.

  • -- provide Management Studies as requested and documents and reports on cost reduction and improvements for Preconstruction.
Value Engineering is beneficial by balancing the project cost with the project function.

Definition of Value Engineering

"The systematic application of recognized techniques by a multi-disciplined team to identify the function of a product or service, establish a worth for that function, generate alternatives through the use of creative thinking, and provide the needed functions to accomplish the original purpose of the project, reliably, and at the lowest life-cycle cost without sacrificing safety, necessary quality, and environmental attributes of the project."
