Abstract

A project integration analysis and value engineering study were conducted during the design phase of the new WPI Residence Hall building. Project integration factors were ranked according to their usage and importance levels and compared through a Pearson Correlation. Also identified were areas to increase integration and grouped data into categories to identify any biases. The value engineering study performed after conceptual and design development stages identified 5% potential cost savings. The project examined the benefits and limitations of project integration and value engineering as modern management and engineering tools.
