Abstract
In construction industry, increased innovation techniques aims in reducing the cost of construction work with either increasing or decreasing the quality of the construction with an affordable housing techniques. In the current scenario, construction industry replaces the implementation of conventional construction process by various new and innovative techniques in the construction field. These new construction techniques are developed mainly to increase the quality of work and to ease the work throughout the completion of the project. For a project to be successful, the most important factor is the cost and quality of the project which needs to be enhanced in the forthcoming years. Value Engineering (VE) is a process for achieving the optimal result through a functional approach. VE continues its journey with deep impact on the world by increasing the performance of all techniques in all fields by eliminating the unwanted cost. This project work provide the necessary information on reduction of cost in construction project at the same time increase in quality comparison with respect to the concept of value engineering by the concreting work. To identify the best quality of the concrete mortar with proper supervising with respect to minimum of cost as possible. This identification of best concreting is to be worked out in the phase I project by estimating the structural building individually using the method of Site Mix Concrete (SMC) and Ready Mix Concrete (RMC).SMC is a traditional concreting method widely suitable for small projects and RMC is the fastest concreting technique which reduces the labour cost and also maintains the quality of mortar. Finally the comparison table is formed to choose the effective concreting technique.
