Overview

This book presents an integrated value philosophy, methodology and tool kit for improving project delivery for construction clients. The book draws together insights from over 200 value studies conducted by the authors, across a range of projects varying in size from [pound]1m to over [pound]1bn, and procurement routes including partnering, PFI, prime contracting and Pocure 21. This practical experience is integrated with extensive research and analysis of standards and best practice worldwide. The standards include, specifically, the British Standard on value management, BS EN 12973:2000, and SAVE International's Standard for the Value Methodology.
