Laws and Regulations in USA
In 1970 the United States Congress recommended using VE on federal-aid highway projects. More recent federal regulations and technical advisories as well as Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) policy and guidance require and support VE, including:
  • The National Highway Systems (NHS) Act of 1995 included a VE mandate directing the U.S. Secretary of Transportation to develop a program requiring state departments of transportation to conduct a VE analysis for projects on the NHS costing $25 million or more.
  • In 1997, 23 CFR Part 627—Value Engineering introduced the requirement that VE be applied to all federal -aid highway projects on the NHS with a value of $25 million or more ($20 million on Major Bridge projects).
  • Title 23 USC § 106(e) and (g), as amended.
  • FHWA’s Federal-Aid Policy Guide September 8, 1998, Transmittal 24.
  • The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ (AASHTO’s) 2001 publication AASHTO Guidelines for Value Engineering, 2nd Edition.

The design of tunnels and underground structures depends to a large extent on the type of ground conditions and construction methodology to be adopted. SMEC has experience in evaluating complex projects, and determine a cost effective method for the construction of the project. The methodology allows for temporary construction access and includes programming and relative costings.
