Best Practices in Estimating Cost-to-Compete on September 11, 2019

While a Construction and Facilities Manager has plenty of resources at his or her disposal to prepare a Work In Progress schedule, one shortfall can be practical guidance on how to compute cost-to-complete and properly vet information provided by others in the organization.

Join specialty trade peers for a roundtable discussion to identify practical solutions and best practices that yield reliable estimates of cost-to-complete. The discussion will focus on mitigating the risk of underestimating labor cost-to-complete.

  • Identify basic methods for calculating cost-to-complete at various points in a project

  • Discuss input from estimating, project management, and engineers

  • Develop best practices for testing the reliability of data prepared by non-accounting personnel

  • Share experiences of cost projections gone bad, and possible reasons for lack of accuracy

  • Learn about tools, techniques, and software solutions that provide early warning systems for labor
