Culture is a big influence in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The presence of culture and related social practices influences the nature and types of demands from the clients of construction projects. Value management (VM) introduced into this construction industry had to break barriers facing the full adoption of the practice. The introductory aspect of the work explains the growth of the construction industry in the UAE over the years. Sustainability and construction were also discussed to understand the influence of both and the utility to be derived with time. Another part of the work speaks on how to improve the practice of VM in UAE construction by suggesting ideas in the design and construction stages. The effect of environment and the cultural aspect of the people, clients, professionals and so on conclude the later part of the work.
