However, the implementation of VE is still low and not so popular especially during the design stage of a construction project. Therefore the main objective of this research is to identify the degree of understanding of VE among consultant firm and investigate the underlying reason that hinders the implementation ofVE especially consulting practice in peninsular Malaysia. The scope of this research is focusing on the professional consultants and also the clients or the developer that involve in construction projects in Malaysia.
