In the current economic environment, it is imperative that the value of JCEB2 be maximized, i.e. by eliminating any unnecessary costs associated with the building. The University has requested a value engineering analysis of the existing JCEB in order to determine how JCEB2 could be improved. This report contains these analyses, along with an introduction to, and appraisal of, value engineering in this context. The conclusion is that the value engineering paradigm requires only incremental changes to JCEB2; the existing JCEB is a sound...
