VALUE ENGINEERING IN EGYPTIAN BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION

This study evaluated the selection of construction systems in major bridge projects in Egypt. The study consisted of a value engineering (VE) investigation of the construction system used for each project and camparison with other applicable systems. The study reviewed the construction systems used in Egypt and their applicability under different site conditions of eight systems and 14 bridge projects. The weighted evaluation technique was used to evaluate the construction system for each project in comparison with other applicable alternatives. The most important criteria considered in this evaluation inlclude construction cost, resource availability, ease of construction durability, construction progress rate, service life, design efficiency, and maintenance. The evaluation led to basic conclusions concerning whether the system used in each case was the best choice.
