Subsoil conditions and geological data
The second value engineering study at the design development phase focuses on more
detailed design decisions including:
Specific building system design
Specification and performance requirements
Proposed design details
Layout options within overall building geometry
Specific MEP system selections
Site paving, grading, and utilities
Major constructability issues
The A-E must incorporate the VE consultants' recommendations approved by GSA into the
design as part of the scope of work.
8 budget analysis
An ECCA summary is prepared at each milestone, using the formats in Appendix B, to compare
the current design-cost breakdown with the previous submission's costs or the budget, with all
values escalated to the current submission date. The summary must include allowances for
design contingencies, general conditions and profit, and construction escalation and yield an
overall project cost per square meter or square foot.
9 requirements for bid submission
Procurement officials ensure that the bid packages include a lump-sum bid requirement for
each bid option, alternate, and unit-pricing item.
