Due to the characteristics of construction projects such as only one time establishment, big investment scale, complicated structure and high energy consumption in operation process, the cost management theories and methods of construction projects are different from other general products. This paper proposes to apply VE to the total life cycle of construction projects, and also proposes a dynamic life cycle cost management model, which pays attention to function analysis in investment decision phase and combines cost management methods such as supply chain management and Kaizen costing based on objective cost management in implementation phase. The model provides a new thought for best realizing the value of construction projects with minimum life cycle cost.
