Join Centric Projects for this session on conceptual cost estimating.
Which comes first, the design or the budget? How can the two be easily reconciled early in a project’s lifespan to maximize design time efficiency and minimize owner frustration? The truth is, conceptual estimating is much more art than science, though it has elements of both. It’s about asking the right questions, staying close to the market, and managing your client’s expectations.
Having provided hundreds of millions of dollars of conceptual estimates for tenant improvement projects, Steve Swanson with Centric Projects knows just the right questions to ask to ensure an on-target budget, allowing design documentation to proceed without concern for later changes. Join us to hear the key decisions you can make during early design phases to ensure your time is not wasted and clients’ projects move forward.
This program is worth 1 HSW and lunch will be provided.
