The need to accurately estimate the cost of projects has increased due to increasing pressure to deliver construction projects faster. Owners, engineers, and designers must be cognizant of the cost implications of design decisions throughout the project development process. This seminar breaks down the construction cost engineering process into its component steps and reassembles it into a straightforward, logical methodology for the development of valid cost analyses of construction projects from the owner's standpoint. You will gain an understanding of the dynamics of cost engineering and will learn how to: analyze the cost implications of project scope; optimize the balance between cost and time implications of design decisions; avoid costly and time-consuming errors due to poorly prepared estimates; accrue time and cost savings by implementing a cost engineering program. Alternating between lecture and high-impact team exercises, this seminar will help you to understand the complex relationships between design and construction on a fast-track schedule.
