Abstract: The need for office space in urban areas could be considered really high because of the economic activities involved and because of its role in global economic growth. While Jakarta may seem to already possess a lot of office buildings, it turns out that they are not enough to compensate the growing demand for office spaces, with the demand reaching 6,928,500 m2 of rental office space at the end of 2013. Floor cover finishing is a generalized term for the permanent cover of the floor and the works involved. Floor cover itself is a term used to illustrate every finishing materials that would be applied on the floor structure to provide walking surfaces. The goal of this research is to acquire any work items that are viable to be value engineered. The floor cover finishing work is considered as the limitation of this research by the consideration of the said work to be the highest cost contribution to the interior architecture and could be the key factor in defining the image of the company that uses the office building. After the implementation of value engineering, the cost saving reached 12%, reducing the cost contribution of the floor cover finishing work to 4.7% from the initial 5.4%.
