Value Engineering

Project Selection for VE studies
WSDOT’s thresholds are $20 million for Structural projects and $25 million for the rest. – Projects at or above these thresholds have a mandatory VE study. 

If a project falls under the threshold for a mandatory study, Value Engineering can be applied to enhance the performance of a facility or reduce its cost, or as a tool to build consensus - sometimes even just getting the right stakeholders in the room is where value is found.
