The original plans were 30% overbudget. Through a very intense Value Engineering exercise, the budget was reduced to within 10% of the goal and moved forward without compromising any critical design elements. The key lesson was that what designers were told were necessary items were, in fact, often wants, and when all stakeholders evaluated what they needed, the team found a way to satisfy corporate financial goals and still produce a state-of-the-art facility. Modern technology also influenced the design in that some of the past ways broadcast studios were constructed were no longer needed due to industry advancements.
