VALUE MANAGEMENT APPLICATIONS IN THE NEW BOLU COURTHOUSE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS

The programs and requirements of courthouses need to be developed through versatile planning, programming, design, and construction process. The implementation of the Value Management (VM) process, which aims to achieve maximum efficiency by using limited resources in the management of this complex process, will both provide economic improvement and add value to the building in terms of functionality. Value management is an approach that emerged in the United States during World War II to achieve maximum efficiency from limited resources. Value management, which has been used in the USA since the 1950s, should be considered as a method that can be used in the transition from the ‘cheapest option to the best value option’ in our country. Although this process occurs in the manufacturing industry, it can be effectively applied to a wide range of disciplines, including the construction industry. Therefore, it should be noted that the value management principles and methodology in construction projects will not only help to obtain better value from resources, but also provide additional benefits such as better communication, better teamwork, and better tuning of the supply chain. This article discusses value management practices of the New Bolu Courthouse in the architectural design process and exemplified as an implementation of a value management application in Turkey.
