Learn best practices in the development of a pre-construction cost estimate and budgeting of projected costs.

An essential and foundational building block common in successful projects is the development of a reasonable and sound construction cost estimate that accurately reflects the scope of work to be performed. In its initial stages, a pre-construction estimate is developed as the design progresses through its development stages and is updated as design and engineering elements are finalized. This allows the designer and owner to ensure that the proposed design and estimated cost to construct are within the financial parameters established by the owner. As the design nears completion, the significance of the cost estimate shifts from serving as a guide utilized by the designer and owner, to a comparison tool for evaluation of the reasonableness of contractor bid proposals, monitoring of performance, evaluation of change requests and resolution of construction claims. This material will discuss best practices that have been employed in the development of a pre-construction cost estimate and budgeting of these projected costs to account for the planned performance of the work.
