Abstract

This paper reports a study on the practice of value engineering in the Malaysian construction industry. This paper aims to investigate the level of awareness with value engineering techniques in the Malaysian construction industry.The paper combined literature reviews and questionnaire survey. Twenty-three (23) consultants were involved in the survey. Data obtained were analyzed to produce descriptive statistics. The findings of the study indicate that the level of awareness of value engineering is high. The level of value engineering implementation was found to be relatively average. However, the paper recommends a more collaborative effort towards the promotion of value engineering techniques in the Malaysian construction industry in an effort to achieve value for money invested.
