Find tools and templates to identify and eliminate unnecessary costs in project design, construction, operations and maintenance.
WSDOT requires value engineering for structural projects over $20 million and all projects over $25 million. Projects with estimated total costs less than these amounts can apply value engineering to enhance performance of a facility, reduce cost, or as a tool to build consensus by engaging stakeholders.
