Value Engineering makes contingency buildings more flexible
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Middle East District’s Center of Standardization for Contingency Standard Design received SAVE International's Gordon Frank Award for Outstanding Value Methodology in Government at the 2015 SAVE Value Summit in San Diego June 9.
Dale Hartmann, chief of the CoS says, “We were nominated for the award because the way this program uses value engineering is more inventive and flexible.”
The Center of Standardization for Contingency Facilities has designed and developed a series of standard, but non-permanent buildings to meet the needs of contingency operations. Customers choose from standard designs for each building’s exterior, or envelope, and standard interiors, which are interchangeable with each envelope.
