About the

VE Summit

As engineering & construction firms continue to experience low profitability and margins, the 3rd edition of the Value Engineering Summit returns to lead the discussion about how the construction industry can proactively build a more effective commercial presence.

The industry’s leading minds will take part in interactive discussions that will focus on how the industry – particularly the contracting sector – can add efficiencies and optimization: from partnerships through to efficiencies of scale and the technologies best improving efficiency.

Agenda

In a challenging commercial climate, Value Engineering has become a critical tool across the Construction industry food chain – not only boosting profits but clarifying crucial stakeholder deliverables.

The Value Engineering Summit has built a powerful reputation for tackling key issues of cost-effectiveness, resourcing and project delivery – and now, bigger and better than ever, its third edition brings together outstanding speakers, panellists and industry experts to discuss the topics that are vital in securing competitive edge. It will also feature greater participation from the public sector, government and industry lobbies.

    [Panel 1]
    Optimisation of the Supply Chain for Better Project Efficiency

    As buildings grow larger and more complex and new government regulations are rolled out, delivering projects efficiently, to budget and on schedule, while maintaining quality is becoming increasingly challenging. In addition, project stakeholders must deal with growing fragmentation in the industry, as is indicated by the rise of several specialist consultants, contractors and suppliers. Staying on top of these challenges requires a supply chain that is agile, collaborative, efficient and responsive.

    • Government legislation can have a significant impact on the supply chain and therefore the project, so it’s vital to stay on top of current and forthcoming rules and regulations
    • Engaging key stakeholders in the supply chain during the initial design process to ensure that value engineering isn’t required as a band aid later in the project’s lifecycle
    • Information is critical. Accurate information ensures that the supply chain and procurement teams can work effectively to create time and cost savings while maintaining quality
    • KPIs should be established and measured constantly to ensure that the supply chain is performing optimally and for the betterment of the project
    • Mandate the use of technology (such as BIM and BIM models) across the supply chain to enhance overall efficiency and reduce wastage

    [Panel 2]
    Can Sustainability add another dimension to the Value Engineering Process?

    Can sustainability – when done correctly –add another dimension to the value engineering process? This high-level panel discussion at the Value Engineering Summit 2020 intends to find out.

    With buildings accounting for nearly 50% of all greenhouse gas emissions globally, and construction responsible for the consumption of a huge percentage of the world’s resources, it’s time for the industry to start looking at how they can improve efficiencies, performances and savings, while still creating spaces that are environmentally friendly.

    Talking points:

    • Building sustainability into the value engineering process
    • How the global focus on efficient and responsible use of resources and efforts to reduce energy, water and resource consumption is driving informed and responsible building design
    • Embracing value engineering as part of the design process instead of the construction process
    • Moving away from utilising a material dependent process to design buildings
    • Encouraging owners, designers, contractors and fabricators to work together to create value through the optimum use of materials, consideration of longevity, simplification of forms, and the engineered reduction of maintenance issues, to create a sustainable project
    • Streamlining and evolving processes to be as efficient as possible
