Value engineering (VE) can be a very valuable tool in the field of civil engineering and the construction industry. VE has tremendous benefits in both cost-saving and project improvement areas. Between the pay-offs and wide variety of applications, it is unsurprising that more firms are adopting the principles of VE in the design and construction phases of their projects. Many studies have been conducted on the invention of new tools for VE while others focused on the application aspect of VE in different engineering domains. This paper presents an overview of VE and its applications in the field of civil engineering. The study should prove useful for future researchers who wish to update their knowledge with the latest status of the state of art of VE application in civil engineering.
