Capabilities

SVS is one of the most experienced and recognized value consulting firms in the industry in the application of the value methodology to infrastructure projects.  As an example, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) selected SVS to lead multiple value study workshops to plan the transformation of their project delivery system, for some $40 billion in infrastructure construction projects, from the traditional design-bid-build approach to a performance-based design-build process.  Additionally, we co-authored the value engineering standard incorporated into the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) Manual of Practice.  Moreover, SVS has conducted over 100 value engineering studies in the past 10 years on design-build infrastructure projects.

Through our 25 years of providing value services within the infrastructure sector, SVS has matured the following capabilities, enriched through our proprietary Value Actualization™ methodology:
