Value Engineering

Williams, through its parent company U.S.Cost, is the largest independent provider of Value Engineering and Value Analysis services in the United States and across the globe. We have performed thousands of VE studies and training sessions over the past 28 years and we have many Certified Value Specialists (CVS’s) on staff certified by the Society of American Value Engineers International (S.A.V.E.) to provide comprehensive services to assist project owners, designers and / or developers in obtaining the maximum possible value for each dollar invested.

Williams has first class systems for drilling down into the rationale for expenditure and driving down cost while enhancing quality. We test whether better value solutions exist and use our project control tools to capture and manage value initiatives through the key stages of project.

In addition to our value engineering team, all Williams professional staff are experienced at instilling value cultures within organizations, advising on procedures and early project definition work. From our formal value engineering workshops, clients typically experience enhanced project performance and quality, reduced costs, greater certainty of achieving objectives and enhanced team buy-in.

These workshops are conducted with an independent team of expert design disciplines led by one of our Certified Value Specialists. A systematic methodology will be followed called a VE Job Plan that assists the value engineering team in identifying high cost-to-worth ratios, selecting alternatives that minimize cost while maximizing quality, developing creative ideas, emphasizing life cycle rather than capital costs, and understanding the purpose and functions of the facility. The VE Job Plan will be executed in six phases (information, functional analysis, creative, evaluation, development, presentation) by the VE Team Leader.

Our value engineering team also has experience in developing databases to track all value analysis alternatives which are under consideration and maintains up-to-date status on implementation of all accepted options.

Our Value Engineering services shall include:

  • Providing project value reviews
  • Project capital and life cycle cost assessment
  • Detailed value analysis and affordability reviews
  • Formal value engineering workshop facilitation
  • Client value engineering procedure development
  • Client value engineering training accredited by S.A.V.E.
