Value Engineering and Value Analysis


“There’s a way to do it better – find it.” – Thomas Edison.

Value Engineering (VE) was developed at General Electric during World War II and is widely used in industry and government.  VE is about optimizing a project by understanding its function, objectives and costs.  Today, VE takes on social, cultural and environmental considerations – ultimately dealing with project sustainability and the well-being of those who use what engineers design and build.  Our VE services include:
