Value Toolkit

Driving better social, environmental and economic outcomes through value-based decision making.

Developed in partnership with over 200 experts from across government and industry, the Value Toolkit is a government backed initiative designed to change the way the construction industry thinks about and measures value.

The Construction Innovation Hub is inviting clients and practitioners to test the Value Toolkit’s process and suite of tools on projects and programmes, between May and October 2021.

Places for the testing programme are limited. If you would like to register please complete the form found below before 12 noon 21 May 2021. Our team will get in touch and share further information with you.

By embracing the Value Toolkit, we can make balanced, informed decisions, maximising the impact of our investments in the built environment.

What is the Value Toolkit?

The Value Toolkit offers clients a structured approach for value-based decision making across the investment lifecycle of a project, programme or portfolio. This means better outcomes from what we deliver and how we deliver it, leading to a more sustainable built environment and a more sustainable model for our industry.

Integrated Process

The Value Toolkit sets out a series of integrated activities which support value-based decision making. It gives policy makers and clients a deep understanding of value and enables them to optimise outcomes. The Toolkit has five interlinked streams: Value Definition, Client Approach, Risk, Measurement & Evaluation and Appointments. These are not isolated streams, but involve interaction, iteration and continuous review. Within each of these streams of the Value Toolkit there are steps, deliverables and decision points.
