Resources & Capabilities

Technical Resources

SVS obtains our subject matter technical expertise from team members found in a variety of areas, including engineering design firms, universities, construction firms, and specialty consulting firms, client resources, and individuals. Using this approach, we are able to openly access top experts in the field associated with planning, design, construction, and operation of infrastructure projects.  We assemble the best team for each project without concern for their corporate affiliation.


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. 

Through over 30 years of providing value services within the infrastructure sector, SVS has matured the following capabilities, enriched through our proprietary Value Methodology:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Project Planning & Integration
  • Project Value Actualization™
  • Project Development & Due Diligence
  • Value Engineering & Integration
  • Life Cycle Cost Analysis & Modeling
  • Program Risk Management
  • Infrastructure Industry Alliances
  • Constructability
  • Organization Optimization

The SVS strategy for creating value is simple and reliable and consistently delivers the best value solution for planning capital investments, launching new businesses, integrating mergers & acquisitions, and recovering distressed projects or enterprises. Our operating model is about getting the right resources doing the right things right, i.e., bringing the people, processes, and tools together to develop and execute an integrated value improvement plan.
