SUSTAINABLE FEDERAL FACILITIES A Guide to Integrating Value Engineering, Life-Cycle Costing, and Sustainable Development Hi: AUTHORED BY THE FEDERAL FACILITIES COUNCIL AD HOC TASK GROUP ON INTEGRATING SUSTAINABLE DESIGN, LIFE-CYCLE COSTING, AND VALUE ENGINEERING INTO FACILITIES ACQUISITION FEDERAL FACILITIES COUNCIL TECHNICAL REPORT No.142 NATIONAL ACADEMY PRESS Washington, D.C. 2001

NOTICE The Federal Facilities Council (FFC) (formerly the Federal Construction Council) is a continuing activity of the Board on Infrastructure and the Constructed Environment of the National Research Council (NRC). The purpose of the FFC is to promote continuing cooperation among the sponsoring federal agencies and between the agencies and other elements of the building community in order to advance building science and technology-particularly with regard to the design, construction, acquisition, evaluation, and operation of federal facilities. The following FFC-sponsor agencies provided funding for this study: Department of the Air Force, Office of the Civil Engineer Deparknent of the Air Force, Air National Guard Department of the Army, Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management Department of Defense, Federal Facilities Directorate Department of Energy Department of the Interior, Office of Managing Risk and Public Safety Department of the Navy, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Department of State, Office of Foreign Buildings Operations Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Facilities Management Federal Bureau of Prisons Food and Drug Administration General Services Administration, Public Buildings Service Indian Health Service Internal Revenue Service National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Facilities Engineering Division National Institutes of Health National Institute of Standards and Technology, Building and Fire Research Laboratory National Science Foundation Smithsonian Institution, Office of Facilities Services U.S. Postal Service, Engineering Division As part of its activities, the FFC periodically publishes reports that have been prepared by committees of government employees. Since these committees are not appointed by the NRC, they do not make recommendations, and their reports are considered FFC publications rather than NRC publications. For additional information on the FFC program and its reports, visit the website at I?ttp://www4.nationalacademies.org/cets/ffc.nsf or write to: Director, Federal Facilities Council, 2101 Constitution Avenue, N.W., HA-274, Washington, D.C. 20418 Printed in the United States of America

In the late 1990s, several of the sponsor agencies of the Federal Facilities Council began developing and implementing initiatives and policies related to sustainable development. Guidance related to life-cycle costing and value engineering was recognized as being supportive of sustainable development, in particular when used in the conceptual planning and design phases of acquisition, where decisions are made that substantially effect the ultimate performance of a building over its life cycle. However, specific concerns were raised that when federal agencies apply value engineering in the final stages of design or during construction in response to cost overruns, design features that support sustainable development may be eliminated. The primary objective of this study, therefore, was to develop a framework to show how federal agencies can use value engineering and life-cycle costing to support sustainable development for federal facilities and meet the objectives of Executive Order 13123.
