Assessing Value Engineering Proposals – Engineer’s Determination by Quantization and Costing Analysis

Please note: This is an international webinar and will take place at 9am Doha time (5pm AEDT).

Value Engineering is one of the measures available for controlling either cost or time (or both) of construction works. Often contractors or clients will initiate the Value Engineering process on proposals made or submitted. Engineer’s determination or Contract Administrator‘s advisory roles on the proposal then requires a diligent approach of carrying out a prudent analysis and assessment of the proposal to make an informed decision on whether to accept the proposal and if accepted, determine what would be the commercial implication on the contract.

In doing this, the expertise of Quantity Surveyors becomes a veritable asset in carrying out the quantization and costing of the Value Engineering proposal being submitted. This session will use a case study to demonstrate how a Quantity Surveyor or Contract Administrator can assess a Value Engineering proposal and recommend accordingly.

The session will outline step-by-step considerations of life cycle costing with specific and related live project examples. Attendees will gain confidence in the assessment of Value Engineering proposals to meeting project objectives. Live quantum, values and figures will be used to assist attendees to gain insight in ascertaining contracting parties’ rights whilst making determinations on a Value Engineering proposal. This session is recommended for Quantity Surveyors, Contract Administrators, Project Managers, Engineers, Contractors and Clients’ representatives and other stakeholders involved in construction contracts.
