Connecting Actual Job Costs to Estimating

Connecting Actual Job Costs to Estimating
One of the biggest risks to a company in a low-margin construction economy is executing a project differently than how it was estimated (and vice versa). The best way to maintain profitability is to create field-friendly budgets, to aggressively track and manage direct costs, and to incorporate actual performance into future estimates.



Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  1. Incorporate field input into estimates
  2. Determine the healthy differences between an estimate and a budget
  3. Recognize why and how actual job costs should be tracked
  4. Utilize job-cost information to improve estimating accuracy

Continuing Education Credits: 0.15 CEUs and 1.5 CPDs.
